Sunscreen In The Winter: Do You Really Need It?
Unless you’re headed on a tropical vacation, you’re probably not going to find yourself out in the sunlight much this winter. Cloudy days tend to happen more often, and colder weather means you’re less likely to stay outside for long periods of time.
However, that doesn’t mean you should skip wearing sunscreen. Believe it or not, you can still pick up some of the sun’s damaging UV rays just from being outside for a couple of minutes. Also, clouds aren’t good protection because UV rays can penetrate right through them.
You don’t have to go with a heavy sunscreen formula like you would for a day at the beach. Instead, opt to include a bit of SPF in your moisturizer or makeup routine. A product like Mineral Foundation with SPF gives you the coverage you’re looking for, both for blemishes and sun protection.
If you’re really missing the way your skin looks with plenty of sunshine, you can easily achieve a bronzed look at home with Bronzer. A bit on your cheekbones, forehead and the bridge of your nose will make you look radiant – not like you’ve been cooped up inside.
