The Best Anti-Aging Secret!

The best anti-aging secret is also the one thing that can prevent you from getting skin cancer. Years ago I had a friend from high school whose mom discovered a funny-looking mole on her arm. Unfortunately, it turned out to be skin cancer and it was so advanced that she died very shortly after her diagnosis. Years ago we baked ourselves in the sun lying on tin foil, covered in baby oil. Of course, there was probably more of an ozone layer protecting us back then. The sun rays were just as harmful, but now there's less protection between them and us so it's very important to use a sunscreen every day, not just when you go to the beach. The best protection is found in a higher SPF. Also, it's very important that you are protected from UVA rays (simply put, these will cause wrinkles) and UVB (simply put, these will give you a bad sunburn). Here's a mathamathical question: If your face cream has an SPF of 15 and your make-up foundation has an SPF of 15, does that mean that you have a total SPF of 30? The answer is no! You still only have an SPF of 15 and if you are out in the sun for any length of time, it needs to be reapplied on a regular basis.
