Wearing sunscreen is the best way to protect against the aging effects of UVA and UVB rays. Apply a quarter teaspoon of broad-spectrum sunblock to your face in the morning, gently rubbing it into your skin. Wait 3 to 5 minutes before using makeup, like foundation, and reapply sunscreen after several hours for continuous protection.
Types of Sunscreen
For a matte appearance, wash your face to remove excess oil before using a facial moisturizer with broad-spectrum sunblock. Avoid regular sunscreens made for the body, which may be heavy and greasy. If you have other concerns, like sensitive skin, use a hypoallergenic product to prevent irritation. Women can also use tinted sunscreen for a little color or a cosmetic powder with SPF protection, which can be dusted across the face in an even layer.
