SUNSCREEN IN WINTER
Protecting Your Skin Health
Many of us have the wrong idea about winters and sunscreen. It is important to remember that the sun functions in enigmatic ways throughout all seasons: the sun rays affect your skin even in its intense chilly rays. You can almost imagine the UV rays plunging through each pore of your skin without even realising it
During the winter months, there are a variety of ways you could benefit from wearing sunscreen apart from keeping your skin radiant and healthy throughout the year.
IMPORTANCE OF SUNSCREENS
1. YOU CAN STILL GET A SUNBURN
The torching rays are sometimes alluded to as UVB rays, a kind of sunburn-causing ultraviolet rays. Even if during the summers those beams are harsher, during the winters they can also cause sun burns. Interestingly, around the winter months, the sun is closest to the earth, causing the risk of much stronger sun exposure.
2. DECREASES YOUR RISK OF CANCER
UVB rays are the kind of rays that could be associated with cancer of the skin. Around these winter months, these waves are still very intense. You will lower the chances of developing skin cancer by just applying sunscreen to your skin each morning. For the maximum safety, we consider using an EltaMD sunscreen which is SPF30 or better.
3. SNOW REFLECTS SUN RAYS
Combined both the snow and sun reflect UV rays. If you are interested in a snow sport, we suggest wearing an EltaMD sunscreen item with an SPF of 30 to 50. Only because it's colder doesn't mean that the sun and Ultra violet rays have lost their strength.
