Sun’s Out — Cover Up with La Roche-Posay

Warm, sunny days are upon us (understatement)—which means it’s important to make sure you have the sun protection your skin needs for every day, especially when your plans include spending time at the pool or beach. A broad-spectrum SPF, like La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios range of advanced sunscreens, includes options for all skin types, tones and concerns—plus antioxidants to help protect against skin-damaging free radicals no matter what’s on the agenda.


Daily sun protection


Sun protection is essential 365 days a year, but it’s wise to up your SPF ante for summer. Once you commit to finishing your morning skincare routine with a well-formulated sunscreen, you can rest assured that you’re providing your skin with the UVA/UVB and antioxidant protection necessary for maintaining your skin’s health (and appearance), and getting extra skincare benefits while you’re at it.
