    Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock, sun tan lotion, sun screen, sunburn cream or block out)[1] is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects some of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Skin-lightening products have sunscreen to protect lightened skin because light skin is more susceptible to sun damage than darker skin. A number of sunscreens have tanning powder to help the skin to darken or tan; however, tanning powder does not provide protection from UV rays.
    Sunscreens contain one or more of the following ingredients:
    Organic chemical compounds that absorb ultraviolet light.
    Inorganic particulates that reflect, scatter, and absorb UV light (such as titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, or a combination of both).
    Organic particulates that mostly absorb light like organic chemical compounds, but contain multiple chromophores, may reflect and scatter a fraction of light like inorganic particulates, and behave differently in formulations than organic chemical compounds. An example is Tinosorb M. Since the UV-attenuating efficacy depends strongly on particle size, the material is micronised to particle sizes below 200 nm. The mode of action of this photostable filter system is governed to about 90% by absorption and 10% by scattering of UV light.
    Depending on the mode of action sunscreens can be classified into physical sunscreens (i.e., those that reflect the sunlight) or chemical sunscreens (i.e., those that absorb the UV light).[2]
    Medical organizations such as the American Cancer Society recommend the use of sunscreen because it aids in the prevention of developing squamous cell carcinomas and basal-cell carcinomas.[3] However, the use of sunscreens is controversial for various reasons. Many sunscreens do not block UVA radiation, which does not cause sunburn but can increase the rate of melanoma, another kind of skin cancer, and photodermatitis, so people using sunscreens may be exposed to high UVA levels without realizing it. [4] The use of broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreens can address this concern.
    Although sunscreen is sometimes called "suntan lotion", the latter is different in that it is used to intensify UV rays whereas the former is used to block UV rays.



    Even though your skin may look ok on the surface, damage is done that is invisible to the naked eye:

    What monstrosity? Sunscreen? The pic I posted shows the "invisible" damage your skin suffers from not using it. They used a special camera to capture the damage to her face.
    Almost all men's skin care lines have SPF formulas, it's not a chick thing exclusively.

    If you prefer being wrinkly and having crow's feet around your eye, that's your prerogative.

    Wow there is a lot I don't know about skin care - serums that cost like 100 bucks - where do you even use that stuff.

    it's kind of funny that i don't know shit about it since my mom worked for a dermatologist for like 20 years and always used to destroy with me questions when I was leaving for the lake.

    Like yep got my beer and wakeboard thats all i need.

    Serums shouldn't coust that much. Some do but being in the industry it is all marketing. When designing the game day line our goal was to provide the highest quality products that you can buy. I just don't see the need to price in excess of $100. It really limits you marketshare and there is just no way any company right now, especially being in the industry and co-founder and CEO of Game Day and knowing what does on, can maximize profits at that price. They are just catering to a niche market. Our aftershave serum/ balm (technically a serum based on industry) is $24 and if you can actually bring me/ show me a better quality product at any price point I would be impressed. My dad/partner is one of the most respected doctors in his field (facial aesthetics) and I can tell you it is all marketing. Just do proper research and you will be fine. I will tell you the most important parts of skincare are daily cleansing, exfoliating 3 times per week and using a moisturizer daily. An aftershave serum is excellent for post-shave to be sure that you are taking proper anti-aging care for your skin. Feel free to message me for any questions about proper skincare.

    I think that you should take a lot of care of your diet. Don't use any face cream without permission of your doctor. You can take a massage of some herbs and other fruits like oranges etc. These are the basic tips to make your skin clean and fresh.

    The only problem I ever have with my skin is post-close-shave ingrown hairs. I can't find anything that really prevents them. Otherwise, the Zihr (Zirh?) scrub and face wash have done me well for years.

    A very cold water rinse usually helps a lot.

    I used a tinted moister and its amazing. make my skin look great. I am very self conscious about my skin as I had crap skin growing up. but with chemical peels and juvederm injections it looks amazing.

    the tinted moister has 35 SPF built. its almost like foundation (no homo)

    no one has ever noticed or called me out (for those guys worried)

    Lab Series BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 35 1.7 fl oz

    I also take fish oil, a skin supplement and use a clearsonic brush too. skin is huge for me since again had bad skin while my brother had flawless skin
