When it comes to skincare, there's always a new trend or product promising to solve your woes. But when you ask the experts they all have the same very important tip - wear sunscreen! Protecting your skin with SPF is the ultimate trick in wrinkle prevention, as well as for preventing the more serious side effects from sun damage.

And, even though you may not be getting a sunburn in January, your skin still is still left to deal with the effects of those UV rays. Don't worry though - you don't need to lather on Banana Boat in the dead of winter to get your daily dose of SPF. Plenty of skincare products have SPF built right in, so you can seamlessly incorporate sunscreen into your morning routine.
