Shutterstock_2817233While dermatologists stress daily sunscreen use to shield skin from UV radiation, the ugly truth is that most women go without any form of sun protection. Even a little unprotected exposure each day can lead to early signs of aging—and worse—over time. So, how does one stay sun safe and beautiful year after year? With a shot a day.

Experts recommend daily broad spectrum protection with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or more. Just how much sunscreen is needed? About one ounce, or roughly the amount of one shot glass, for all exposed areas, including arms, legs, face and décolleté. (Your face alone should receive half a teaspoon.) And don’t forget to reapply at least every two hours if outside for an extended period of time.

To shield your complexion and correct the look of past sun damage, look for a broad spectrum formula that also renews the skin’s appearance. Pür  Day-complex Minerals’ Day Complex combines advanced peptides and antioxidants  with an SPF of 20 to hydrate and protect the skin while minimizing the look of lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. For an all-in-one makeup and sun solution, try Pür’s NEW 4-in-1 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer. This SPF 15 hydrator also doubles as a sheer foundation and primer for mineral makeup like the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup with SPF 15.
