No matter the weather or amount of daylight each day, wearing daily sun protection on your skin is important. Below are some reasons to protect your skin year-round.

Upper Peninsula winter weather can be really harsh on your skin. Snow and ice reflect sun’s rays, actually even intensifying them. The winter wind and low moisture levels can also be very tough on your skin.

Sunscreens and moisturizers with SPF protect skin from harmful sun rays, and can add moisture back into dry skin, addressing both skin concerns through one simple step. Studies have also shown that daily sunscreen users have healthier, more youthful skin than those who don’t wear any.

Also, don’t forget to reapply your sunscreen, especially after being out in rain, sleet, snow and windy conditions. Those harsh weather conditions can deteriorate the effectiveness of sunscreen, just as sweat, swimming and heat can in the summer months.

Consistently wearing sunscreen will benefit your for years to come, as the more time your skin is exposed to UVA/UVB rays, the greater your chances of developing skin cancer.
