Sunscreen is important to prevent skin damage and sunburn.

Protect Your Skin

The sun is stronger during the summer, especially before noon. Be sure to apply SPF before going for your morning walk or any outings. Too much exposure to the sun can cause premature aging, fine lines, sun spots, sunburn, and even skin cancer. ANEW Hydrafusion Daily Beauty Defense is gentle on the skin and doesn’t feel greasy at all. Plus, it’s 50 SPF. Tip: Best to apply every 15-20 minutes when under the sun.

It made your skin smooth and soft while keeping the bugs away. I’m so glad to see they’ve made a bug guard now!
