11 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Sunscreen

11 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Sunscreen

Are you sunscreen savvy? If you answered yes, you're in the minority, because only 14 percent of women wear sunscreen daily, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. And if the other 86 percent knew one simple fact---that using an SPF of 15 or higher can reduce the risks of developing skin cancer by 50 percent---we're willing to bet the number of daily sunscreen-wearing women would be much, much higher.

Summer 2014: Must-Have Fashion Trends By Style Profile

Summer 2014: Must-Have Fashion Trends By Style Profile

Summer, glorious summer. We've yet to meet an individual who is resistant to its charms. Balmy breezes, golden dusks, temperatures rise, and necklines plunge.
