The sun is coming out and staying out for longer periods in the day. Which means sunscreen should become a very important part of your daily routine. For adults and kids alike you should be putting sunscreen on daily.
If you are a woman, you probably have sunscreen in the makeup you use daily. But men and especially children, need sunscreen too.
