*-- Why You Should Wear Sunscreen in the Winter --*

As a matter of fact, snow and ice can intensify the sun’s rays and it can reflect up to 90% of the sun’s rays. Don’t let the clouds fool you this winter. The sun’s reflection is extremely powerful!

If you are a winter athlete, is easy to associate winter with frostbite but the sun is just as damaging on the slopes as they are for summer athletes out there on the field and beach. Winter athletes are actually at an even higher risk of sun damage to their skin because UV radiation exposure increases 4-5% with every 1,000 feet above sea level.

Any area that is exposed to the sun should be covered in sunscreen. Even in the winter you should still apply every 3-4 hours if you’re going to be spending time outside of an extended period of time. Need help covering up?

The earth’s ozone layer is at its thinnest during the winter. That means it’s not absorbing the UV rays the way it normally would in the warmer months. Windburn and sunburn also act together during the winter months. The freezing temperatures and vicious winds that leave your skin dry and agitated allow for UV rays to have a better shot at your skin. Wearing sunscreen on exposed skin, especially when the sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., will keep you protected from these damaging rays.

While there are less direct UV rays in the winter, there is significant reflection of these rays which can still easily cause sunburn. Even if you don’t get burned, the UV rays are still at work causing wrinkles and aging the skin. Protect your skin this winter with at least an SPF 30.
