Sunscreen in winter


While summer is considered the high season for UV rays, the rays are still quite strong in winter, and certain winter-related factors can even increase their strength. Regardless of the temperatur­e or time of year, the sun emits ultraviole­t (UV) rays, a type of invisible radiation that can harm our skin and lead to premature aging or skin cancer.

During winter most of us bundle up to keep warm, your face, ears and hands become the key parts to keep protected. The sun dries the skin out and can cause premature aging, deep wrinkles, brown aging spots and skin rashes. Apply sunblock with a high SPF in the winter to prevent your skin getting dry.
