The benefits of regular, Defcon 1-level sunscreen are myriad; they range from getting carded in your 30s to avoiding skin cancer. But I’m regularly teased by my non beauty industry friends about my very deep and real commitment to reapplying SPF 50+ (and setting an iPhone timer to remind me to re-slather, not turn over) when I’m out in the summer sun. I would never go a day without applying it to my face. The most compelling argument for rocking the ‘screen on a daily? The fact that I, at 34 (approaching 35, gag), gave my number to a spry 28 year-old JFK Jr. lookalike, per his request, on Friday night. Do you need any more reasons to stock up the 9th edition of the Sephora Sun Safety Kit?
