7 SPF moisturizers that will protect your skin on the golf course
Golfers spend A LOT of time in the sun. Four hours (or five, or six, depending on where you’re playing) on a high UV-index day can really take a toll on your skin. It’s so, so important to take protective measures before (and during) your round.
Luckily, many golf clothes are constructed with some level UPF protection already. Definitely, wear a hat or some shades to protect your eyes and face, and, of course, bring along some sunscreen.
The last part — sunscreen — is the most obvious way to protect your skin. We know the importance of sunscreen and were likely taught by parents or told by dermatologists to apply it every single day. Even if you’re not going to be laying on a beach or lounging poolside. Still, I forget all too often. If you’re in the same boat, opt for a daily moisturizer with SPF.
Once sunscreen becomes a part of your skincare routine, it’s much easier to follow through with daily SPF application. You should still be reapplying every two hours for maximum effectiveness, but since moisturizers come in small packaging, they’re easy to throw in your purse, leave in your locker, or carry around in your golf bag. Never get caught without sunscreen again!
