Winter Sun Protection We all know sun protection is important in the summer — but have you considered that sun exposure can do just as much damage in the winter months? It’s true. Not only is UV radiation still a threat in winter, but also, winter conditions like snow can make things worse. According to The Karen Clifford Skin Cancer Charity, snow can reflect the sun’s UV rays by up to 80 percent. Add to this the greater risks that come from skiing at high altitudes, where UV radiation increases, and winter can bring about just as much damage as summer days at the beach! Considering how damaging the sun can be to skin even in the colder months, what can you do this Winter to protect yourself? To help answer that question, here’s a look at key tips to keep in mind this season:
1. Use Sunscreen: According to research cited at The Skin Cancer Foundation, daily sunscreen can reduce skin aging in adults under the age of 55. What’s more, people who use sunscreen daily show 24 percent less skin aging than those who don’t. The only problem? A lot of mainstream sunscreens on the market today are filled with harmful chemicals and toxins that can end up being even more damaging than the sun’s rays. That’s why it’s best to use an all-natural product like Jersey Shore Cosmetics' Anti-Aging Mineral Sunscreen, which is a new, natural sunscreen stick with The Environmental Working Group (EWG.org) highest score of "0" zero toxins. Jersey Shore Cosmetics physical sunscreens are all natural, moisturizing and great for harsh Winter conditions. Carry these new sunscreen miniatures on the slopes or when traveling for quick touch ups any time.
"Physical blockers provide better broad spectrum coverage as compared to chemical-based sunscreen which are usually either UVB or UVA blockers, Physical sunscreens also work for a longer period of time giving longer coverage requiring less re-application. They are also less irritating than chemical blockers."
Top Rated and recommended by EWG.org.
2. Protect Your Lips: Your lips are some of the most sensitive parts of your body, and yet they’re often one of the most missed, in terms of sun protection. When applying sunscreen, always include your lips. You can finish with a moisture rich lip conditioner like Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo lip conditioners for long lasting moisture. Mongongo oil contains nutrients and natural UV blockers, so it’s a great product to add to your sun care routine.
3. Apply Protection Often: As Dana Oliver suggests at The Huffington Post, “beware of sunscreen’s archenemy: sweat.” The sunscreen and lip balm you apply this morning can easily be sweated off in a few hours. Plan to keep reapplying to any exposed areas throughout the day.
4. Cover Up: Dressing with layers is important for more than body heat; covering your body with clothes also insulates it from sun damage. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends covering your head, wearing items like ski masks and always wearing sunglasses or goggles when skiing.
5. Seek Out Shade: It’s common sense to look for shade when you’re feeling overheated by a summer pool, but actually, seeking out shade can be just as important in the high sun of winter afternoons. Seating areas that have umbrellas, pathways with overhead covers and parks with shade structures are all good options for getting some protection from the harshest rays.
6. Pay Attention to the Time of Day: Just like in summer, the mid-day hours see the highest levels of UV radiation, so try to ski, snowboard, etc., earlier or later in the day. This lowers your level of exposure to the most powerful UV rays and still allows you to enjoy the season. Even when the temperatures are lower and you never go outside without a coat and gloves, you can still face potential skin damage from the sun. Use the tips above to know where to get started with protecting yourself throughout the winter — so you’ll be able to make the most of the season without worry.
