    It's A Must!

    I keep a can of Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock near my front door so that I remember to give my face a good spraying every time I leave the house. I have my dad's sensitive skin- it's pale, never tans, and burns quickly! If I don't use sunblock daily, my skin gets...
