While sunscreen is a crucial part of our skincare regimens throughout the summer, did you know that it’s equally as important to apply the proper protection during the winter months as well? Read on to see why forgetting this crucial skincare step may be leading to premature aging.
With less time spent outside in comparison to the warmer months, some might feel like sunscreen isn’t necessary. However, harmful UV rays still penetrate, sometimes in a stronger manner, through overcast clouds due to the fact that the sun is actually closer to the earth throughout the season. Therefore, the UV rays are closer to your skin than that of summertime.
Another factor that comes into play throughout colder weather is that ice and snow reflect the UV rays, making it extremely easy for the UV rays to affect your skin. While we may not experience it directly in the Central Valley, a quick trip to the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains is usually on our agenda to hit the slopes, where exposure is extremely high.
