Supergoop Super awesome
No matter where you live, whether the weather is summer or winter for you now, you must protect yourself from the sun and damaging light rays. Whether your weather affords a teeny weenie bikini, or necessitates a parka, scarf, gloves, and hat, you're skin is still exposed to damaging light.
You must protect yourself. Ladies - choose a foundation or moisturizer with an SPF. The best are natural minerals like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, because they literally create a barrier on the skin that reflects rays, preventing those awful sun spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Men - choose a moisturizer with SPF, or consider purchasing a sunscreen specifically for the face. It will be more gentle, and the lovers in your life will appreciate the added suppleness.
But sunscreen is not just for the face. You can't neglect your hands (and the rest of the body for that matter!). Your hands get some of the most exposure of the entire body. Think about driving a car - your hands are closest to the windshield, whilst your head and body are usually shaded by the roof. Hence, sunscreen on the hands is essential.
If you need a good recommendation, I love Supergoop! You can get it at Sephora.
