Sun Protection might not be a sexy topic, but it’s one of those things we need to talk about. Sunscreen is often misrepresented as being something only for beach days, boat rides, and 90-degree weather, but the benefits of sunscreen go way deeper than burn preventing.
You may have heard people talking about everyday sunscreens lately, and you might be wondering “how often do I need to wear sunscreen?”
Every single day seems un-rational when you think about all of the cloudy, rainy, and even snowy weather conditions depending on where you live. However, studies show that sun rays can damage your skin even when it’s cold. Maybe even more.
This is because when it’s colder, the ozone layer is thinner, and there is less in the air to absorb the UV rays that damage skin. Cold weather and windburn can also be prevented by using an SPF. In fact, the snow reflects even more UVA rays than sand, if that doesn’t make you want to run and lather some sunscreen all over your face, we have some great suggestions for screens that don’t clog pores or leave a white layer on your skin.
