Secrets to Sensational Summer Skin
You want: Skin that's protected from the sun.
How to get it: Today's sunscreens feel so light, you'll be more than willing to slather them on.
What to look for: "Broad spectrum" protection, such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, that shields from burning UVB rays and aging UVA rays.
How to use: Apply at least 30 minutes before going out into the sun to allow time for skin to absorb the ingredients.
Tip: Reapply two minutes after your first coat. "People don't use enough sunscreen," says Dr. Waldorf. "The body needs a shot glass of product."Our Favorite Protectors
