Tropical Living: Four Best Facial Sunscreens To Combat Sun Damage 

Summer is a time to relax and unwind, and the fear of sun damage should never get in the way of a perfect vacation, so grab your sunscreen and lather it on!

Living in a tropical country—there is no escaping the summer heat. Going to the beach, mountains, or even mundane activities can be painful because of extreme temperatures. Alongside handling the heat is the fear of the damage the sun can do to your skin. 

In times like these, the best you can do is protect yourself, especially your skin, against the scorching heat of the sun. Wearing sunscreen prevents sun damage and prevents the skin from early wrinkling. Habitual usage of sunscreen on the face does not only protect the skin but also helps keep up a healthy glow. Wearing sunscreen religiously also prevents skin cancer and sunburn. 

In choosing the perfect sunscreen, there’s a lot to consider. To ease the burden of researching on your own, here are the best sunscreen brands in the market today.
