It is easy to forget how dangerous the sun is, but with skin cancer on the rise, it has never been more important to daily apply sun cream, especially if you’re planning to be exposed to the sun for long periods of time. Thankfully beauty products have been making it easier for you to apply SPF, with many foundations and moisturizers coming with built in protection. Look out for your skin and prevent sun damage by protecting it before it’s too late.
Amanda buys a moisturizer with SPF to protect her fair skin: “I’m really scared of the sun. During the day, I use the Gentle Protective Emulsion moisturiser with SPF. And I don’t go to bed without putting on La Creme. It smells really good and when I wake up, I know my face is going to feel really good.”
Fergie believes her skin is damaged from the sun so tries to protect it now: “I’m a California girl. I used to be a sun worshipper. Now I’m trying to reverse the damage. I wear sunscreen, SPF15 on my lips and I reapply La Mer eye cream as often as I remember. I’ve got to make up for lost time.”
Halle is teaching her daughter to use sun cream daily: ”My daughter is only five but I’ve already got her applying sunscreen daily. You need to start young to make sure your skin is really smooth and even and not patchy or blotchy. I’m going to continue to drill that into her, to make sure its part of her everyday life.”

Jennifer buys makeup or moisturiser with an SPF: ”When I was really young, no one thought of the sun as being a problem. We would put on baby oil and lay in the sun to try to get brown. [These days], right after brushing my teeth and washing my face, I put on sunscreen immediately. It has to be in my moisturiser, in my make-up.”
Nicole tries to stay out on the sun after finding cancer on her leg: “I wear a lot of sunscreen. I never go in the sun. I’ve had one skin cancer on my leg, and I rarely get in the sun, so that just shows you. They cut it out (the cancer). Stay out of the sun, because it is the worst thing in terms of aging. I’m very medical. I come from a medical family.”
