Exposure to the sun is the number one cause of premature skin aging.  With summer fast approaching it's a great time to summarize the basics of skin protection.

Use sunscreen daily.  When the sun is at its brightest, it can penetrate car windows and even beach umbrellas to cause damage to your  skin.  A sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is recommended.
