Defend Skin with a Daily SPF

Even on cloudy days, UV rays can damage skin which can lead to enlarged pores and irritation. Sun damage can even cause skin to produce excess oil which can increase the likelihood of clogged pores. Use a non-comedogenic sunscreen to help protect skin without clogging pores.
