It is very important to continue to apply sun protection as the summer comes to an end. Many of us stop the use of sunscreen with the perceived lack of sun exposure. But fall and winter does not signal a break from harmful UV rays. Remember UV rays can penetrate through clouds and overcast skies. It is especially important to apply SPF if you practice daily exercise or work outdoors. Skiers should take special caution before hitting the slopes. The combination of the sun reflecting off the snow and a higher altitude make skiers and snowboarders highly susceptible to sunburn.
Ingredients like titanium dioxide or Parsol, which offer both UVA and UVB protection, are the most important ingredients to look for when purchasing a sunblock. Youth Corridor’s Sooth and Defend Moisturizer with SPF 30 UVA and UVB Protection, protects delicate skin while calming botanical extracts soothe and defend. Before stepping outside remember to kick up your sun protection for fall and winter activities.
