6 Sunscreens to Keep Your Guy From Looking Like This Guy

The British tabloids have been running pictures of Prince Harry and Prince William at a bachelor party in London over the weekend, and the headlines all focus on their cocktail consumption and love of the "Harlem Shake."

However, this photo doesn't make me think of partying at all. It makes me think of sunscreen. And it makes me wish I could go back in time, crash the party (apparently the daytime portion involved a riverboat cruise), and slather the Prince in SPF.

These Central Park Sunbathers Most Definitely Need More Sunscreen

Sunscreen is the hot topic this week -- with Memorial Day marking the start of summertime revelry, the shocking Consumer Reports sunscreen study, and the hard facts from Melanoma Awareness month. We all know skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S., yet many people still skip the sun protection. A new study (part of Jergens' Report on Melanoma Awareness Month) found that more than a quarter of people who have already had melanoma say they never use sunscreen. And only 17% of adults report always wearing sunscreen. Basically, most of us fail at protecting ourselves from the sun. Case in point: this photographer's brief exposé on sun tanning in New York City.   read more
