Just before I turned 40, I paid a visit to my dermatologist. With so many anti-aging products on the market and multiple concerns from fine lines to age spots, I needed some guidance. The first thing she asked me was about what I was using for sun protection. When I told her my day cream had an SPF of 15, her look of disdain was humbling. "I'm not going to help you," she said, "if you aren't going to protect your skin." Lesson learned. In fact, up to 90% of aging comes from sun exposure. Yikes! Moms and dads spend a lot of time outside chasing little ones around and taking stroller walks, so protect yo self before you wreck yo self with one of these 7 high-quality, high-SPF broad-spectrum facial moisturizers.
