What: Palm Beach Perfect Skin: The Quest For Ideal Skin Health & Beauty by Dr. Kenneth Beer
Why: We all long for that perfect summer glow. And yet, how many times do we have to be reminded how terrible the sun is for our skin? And as if melanoma, sun spots, and premature wrinkles weren't bad enough, how about the utter pain and embarrassment of sunburn? I'll admit, I used to worship the sun god a little too much in my youth, and I am certainly regretting my careless ways now.
But, thanks to dermatologist Kenneth Beer and his new book, Palm Beach Perfect Skin: The Quest For Ideal Skin Health & Beauty, we now have the tools to both fight wrinkles and prevent future damage to our precious skin.
In his new book, Dr. Beer offers expert advice on the latest advancements in treating wrinkles and caring for your skin. And now, he is offering exclusive tips and product picks for SheFinds! Dr. Beer recommends using no less than an SPF of 60 when spending a day in the sun, and when looking for an everyday sunscreen, he strongly suggests staying away from SPF 15 products, as they don't provide enough protection.

Cortisone cream ($8) might be old school, but it's the perfect go-to for soothing itchy sunburnt skin.
Motrin IB ($10) not only heals muscle aches, fevers, and headaches, it also takes the edge off of that painful burn.
Also great for mosquito bites, poison oak, and chicken pox, Aveeno Anti-Itch Lotion ($6.70) should have a permanent spot in your medicine cabinet.
Great as an everyday lotion, Theraplex Hydrolotion moisturizer ($14.90) coats your skin with extra protection, and keeps on hydrating throughout the day.
