How does the sun damage my skin?

One of the most obvious ways that sun can cause skin damage is with sunburn, which many people suffer with at some point in their lives. However, there are less obvious ways that sun can cause damage, for example, increasing the likelihood of wrinkles or fine lines, or even increasing your chances of developing skin cancer. This is why proper sun protection should be an important part of your daily routine.

Can I use this product with my make up?

How to use this sun cream
Apply a generous amount of Nivea Sun Shine Control Cream and massage it into the skin before going out into the sun. Let the cream dry before applying any other makeup or skin care product. Reapply when needed, such as after swimming, showering, sweating, or towelling dry.
How else can I stay safe in the sun?
