Protecting your skin from sun damage is essential throughout the year, even on cloudy days. Dermatologists recommend looking for a sunscreen with broad spectrum coverage, which means that it protects against both UVA and UVB light. Additionally, look for a product that contains either helioplex or mexoryl, and choose one that contains either titanium dioxide or zinc dioxide.
