Spring: 5 must-have tools for the skin
 The new season - it's always new principles in skin care. In the spring, we do not only buy new clothes from the new collections, but also need to spend a small revision of its stockpile of cosmetics. Here are five tools that will help to move from the cold and harsh winter to warm and sunny spring.

1. Protection from the sun
You may have stayed a day cream that you used last summer, with good filters and suitable to your skin type. But before you start using it, be sure to check the expiration date, as well as consistency and smell. If they have changed over the winter - it is better to buy a new vehicle. Typically, the shelf life of sunscreen varies from 2 to 3 years. But the protective functions of the cream reduced if not properly stored. So, if you are not sure that the cream is not subjected to excessive heat or humidity, maybe it's time for a new tube?

What SPF record of your funds? Maybe you need to go on the index "15" to at least "30"? If you live in more southern regions, it is possible, SPF 15 is not enough. However, this protection can be greatly enhanced if all of your money will be daytime with solar filters, including color cosmetics. I mean tonal resources, bronzer, lipstick, lip.

The level of SPF protection 100 protects against 99% of sunlight. The higher the score, the more expensive means. But the most important thing in sunscreen - even high rate of SPF, and the regularity of its use. In the room you can not think about it, but if you often go to the outdoors during the day, you have to apply protection every couple of hours. And do not forget the spring sun insidious because the skin after winter disarmed before its rays.
