Why you need Sunscreen in Winter


Your beauty routine changes dramatically between summer and winter however, are a few products you need to make sure you keep out over the cooler months. The major one – sunscreen. Or at least a moisteriser with a minimum of SPF15+.

With the ozone thinning out during winter the suns rays can sometimes cause a lot more damage than you’d expect. If you work in an office and have a window which catches the sun, don’t assume just because it’s winter and it’s cold that the sun is harmless. It still causes skin damage.

You might be wearing plenty of layers but you need to make sure you’re still looking after your neck, hands and face. The places, you more than likely don’t have covered. 80% of the suns rays can penetrate through clouds so don’t go thinking because it’s cloudy that you’re safe.

And not to forget those on the slopes, skiing and snowboarding. It’s important to remember that UV radiation exposure increases 4-5% every 1000 feet above sea level. Combining sun burn with wind burnt skin is not comfortable at all. So make sure you remember to wear sunscreen everyday and keep your lips moisterised too.
