We often hear many say “no sun, no damage”. That is false. Although it is the middle of winter, you can still get sun damage with UV exposure. Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) is a form of radiation that comes from the sun regardless of the presence of sunlight, UV rays are present year-round! It is vital to protect your skin even on those cold, dreary winter days. UV exposure can cause early aging, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles, and it will aid in the loss of elasticity.
Sunscreen provides a barrier between our skin and the sun’s harmful rays. It is recommended to wear a broad-spectrum SPF 30 and to reapply every 2 hours. Whether you are working an office job or skiing down the slopes, sunscreen will help protect your skin from unwanted sunspots and decrease your chance of developing skin cancer.
Despite your age, race, or profession, there is a sunscreen suitable for you. There is a wide range of sunscreens that provide restorative, corrective, and defensive benefits.
