Sunscreen is not just a must-have for fun in the sun. Sunscreen should be a step in your skincare routine that should not be skipped, even in the winter. We have the deets in today’s article on why it should be a must-have, even on your next ski trip.1. Prevent Signs of Aging
This is a no brainer as photo damage is a huge factor when it comes to premature aging. This is one of the biggest reasons why we wear sunscreen all year long, in order to keep our skin looking healthy and youthful.2. Sunlight Reflected Off Snow
Sunlight gets reflected off snow and ice during the winter months, which can not only cause damage on the eyes, but it can also cause sunburns and other damage on the skin. Not only that, but the UV rays can bounce off the snow and ice as well, causing additional damage.3. Ozone is Thinnest During Winter
The ozone layer tends to be the thinnest during the wintertime, which can be a problem for those who are going outside. A little science lesson, the ozone layer is the “shield of life” for the earth. This layer in the stratosphere helps to absorb radiation from the sun, preventing it from reaching the surface of the earth. Since it is the thinnest during the wintertime, less UV rays are shielded from the earth and we need to do what we can to protect ourselves from the harmful rays.
When choosing a sunscreen for the winter, be sure to choose one that is moisturizing and at least SPF 30. There is a line of sunscreen that checks off all the boxes that are needed when choosing a sunscreen for the winter and that is Coréelle’s newest addition, Active Nine.
