Neutrogena Figuratively Turns the SPF Up to 11


I know I sound like a broken record: Sunblock, sunblock, sunblock. But if I sound repetitive, it's only because slathering on SPF is the best way to take care of your skin. Not only does it prevent premature wrinkling and spotting of your complexion, it can help prevent skin cancer. As a wise man named Jay-Z once said, it's so necessary.

Most dermatologists recommend wearing SPF 30 every day, and that's what I do on overcast days. If it's sunny, my inner heliophobe comes out big time, and I amp up the SPF number. Now, Neutrogena has come out with a sunblock that sports a whopping SPF 100 — and no, that isn't an extra zero. I'd had lousy results with their SPF 70 last year, finding it too thick and fragranced, so I expected more of the same. Not so! This broad-spectrum sunblock goes on easily, sinks into skin well, and won't knock you over with its scent. If you plan to go outside this Summer, feel free to join me in my SPF overcompensation.
