Five Things You'll Need to Know About Sunscreen to Survive Summer in Phoenix

Gigi Arredondo has been working in the industry for nearly a decade as a hair stylist, makeup artist, and beauty consultant in Old Town Scottsdale. She's constantly learning, trend hunting, and shopping -- all with access to beauty products not available to the public. And she's here to share the good, the bad, and the ugly. Up today: Sunscreen.

Dr. Michelle Jeffries is a Peoria and Sun City-based, board-certified dermatologist who validated what my clients are showing off this time of year -- sunburned necks, ears, and lips.

Jeffries, who practices at Beatrice Keller Clinic, typically hits on the key points with patients (apply 20 minutes before sun exposure, stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., wear protective clothing, and of course re-apply every two hours.) But today, she gives us the rundown on how to protect yourself from getting sun damage and slowing down the inevitable aging process.
