Memorial Day 2013: Pocket-Size Sun Protection

By  May 20, 2013

As the sun starts to shine more regularly, protecting your skin from harmful rays is more important than ever. For those of us who live our lives on the go, sunscreen can sometimes be an afterthought. But whether you’re at the beach or walking down the New York City streets, sunscreen is always a must. No, mirrored shades and trendy hats won’t cut it (though they’re welcome add-ons). For this season, get your hands on one of these pocket-sized protectors to take with you wherever you go. These small sticks and itty-bitty bottles can fit in any bag, so you have no excuse not to cover up.
