Do you use sunscreen in the Winter?

No, we are not crazy. Sun protection is really just as important during the cold winter season as it is during the warmer months. You may feel cold outside, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the strength of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Although people tend to associate heat with sunburn, that is a myth. No matter what the temperature is outside, hot or cold, you can get a sunburn.

Always wear a sunscreen or sunblock. You should wear sunblock of at least SPF 15 or higher even in the winter. You’ll need to reapply the sunblock periodically because the winter weather will dry it out and strip it from your skin.
