• Make sun protection part of your daily routine. It’s one of the best long-term investments you’ll ever make. UVA rays are strong year-round and UVB rays are more intense during mid-day, spring and summer. Wear a moisturizing sunscreen on your face year-round, preferably with an SPF of 15 or higher. Choose a vitamin-enriched lotion that won’t clog pores.
• Want that summer glow without damaging your skin? A sunless tan is quick, easy and provides beautiful results. I recommend applying a sunless tanner one to three times a week, but this can vary from person to person. If you reapply too frequently – for example every day – the results may look unnatural.
• It’s important to remember another important step in keeping your skin in tip-top shape: exfoliating. Whether it’s before you apply a sunless tanner or after you’ve been dipping your toes in the pool, exfoliating helps produce a smoother surface and keeps your skin looking toned. Removing dead skin cells from the top layer of facial skin with a scrub cleanser not only gives a smooth surface for applying a sunless tanner, but also enhances the penetration of moisturizers.

• Follow your shower or bath with application of a moisturizer, especially after you exfoliate. Use moisturizers specifically designed for the body; they tend to have richer emollients. Spray moisturizers are particularly convenient to use on bare legs in the summer.
