Winter Sun Protection: SPF Roundup

Yes, it's freezing cold and you are bundled up in sweaters and boots and the thought of a beach and a bikini are far out of your mind, but it's still important to apply SPF each day. 


SPF plays a vital role in shielding your skin from the harmful effects of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. While the sun's rays may not feel as warm or strong on your skin during winter, its ultraviolet (UV) rays continue to break down your skin cells at a faster rate regardless of the season, resulting in a condition called photoaging. Here is why applying SPF daily will help:

  • SPF helps to prevent sunburn, which is not only painful but can also cause long-term damage to your skin. Sunburn is a result of overexposure to UVB rays, and a higher SPF provides better protection.
  • Exposure to the sun's UV rays can lead to premature aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Regular use of SPF can help maintain youthful-looking skin by reducing these signs of aging.
  • Prolonged sun exposure without protection increases the risk of skin cancer, including melanoma, one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer. SPF is a key component in preventing skin cancer by blocking the UV rays that can lead to DNA damage and the development of cancerous cells.

SPF is a year-round necessity.

SPF is not just for sunny days at the beach. UV rays can harm your skin even on cloudy or overcast days. Therefore, it's essential to incorporate SPF into your daily skincare routine, regardless of the weather. This essential product will now be your favorite step in your routine with some of these innovative formulas - gone are the days of the streaky, filmy, caky formulas of the past.
