Here's a bit of spring cleaning you'll actually enjoy: a makeup-bag makeover. Whether you're a minimalist who prefers just a handful of products, or a maximalist who happily hauls more, a chic new cosmetics case and a fresh set of travel-friendly beautifiers will give you a little thrill every time you powder your nose.
The most effective packaged sun protection (as opposed to, say, a hat, parasol, basement, or cave ...) is typically a thick white goop. It's not glamorous, but it can preserve your youthfulness -- and stave off skin cancer. But now more and more makeup is being infused with UV blockers; when layered on top of your quotidian sunscreen, these cosmetics provide an extra measure of defense. Adding the good kind of glow while avoiding the bad -- color us impressed.
