Sun Protection Essentials

A sun-kissed glow is on everyone’s top priority list, but appropriate sun protection is non-negotiable. You don’t need to hide from the sun completely, but there are products that can protect your skin from the harsh UV rays.


1. Sunscreen

Sunscreen is your skin’s best friend as it helps reduce your risk of skin cancer, premature aging and sunburns. You can optimize your protection by finding a formula that works for your specific skin type. Also, you can’t forget about the little one! Babies’ skin can get very sensitive, making them extra susceptible to burns. Shoppers Drug Mart offers an assortment of sunscreens for both adults and babies!


2. Lip Balm with SPF

Your lips are just as vulnerable to sun damage as the rest of your skin, but they are often overlooked. Sephora has a wide range of lip balms that contain SPF like the Jack Black’s Moisture Therapy Lip Balm to keep your lips damage-free and moisturized.


3. Sunglasses
