"Using daily SPF is a small (and pretty damn significant) way to take care of yourself and show your skin some love." The comprehensive, multi-part guide includes myth busting, information on how to do at-home skin cancer checks, assistance with finding quality sunscreen formulas and more. {Cosmopolitan}
