What's the best sunscreen to use? It seems counterintuitive since there are a ton of different types of sunscreens on the market, but recent studies have shown that melanoma is on the rise and UVA rays are responsible for this potentially deadly form of skin cancer. (FYI, tanning beds are pure UVA rays -- eek -- thank goodness there's a tanning tax now to save us from our tan-obsessed selves.) Well, Dr. Moy explains that a lot of older sunscreens block UVB not UVA rays, creating a false sense of security when you're actually getting sun damage. He says to ensure that you're protected, use an SPF that blocks UVA rays such as Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 100+ with Helioplex, $12.99.
