Sunscreen in WinterYou may faithfully apply sunscreen on your summer vacation. But did you know that winter skin needs protection, too?

Though we may not feel the sun’s effect as much in winter, its rays still penetrate through glass windows, especially while commuting. Winter weather actually amplifies the sun’s effect because the rays reflect off snow!

For those of us who love winter sports at high altitudes, take note: Every 1,000 feet above sea level increases UV radiation exposure 4 to 5%. This adds an increased risk of damage to skin, which causes skin to appear aged and can lead to skin cancer. Ten percent of deaths from skin cancer originate in the head and neck area, areas that we sometimes neglect to protect in winter months.

Sea Elixir, found in our Rapid Eye Lift, helps to repair sun damage from past years. It also provides some natural protection from the sun to boost your usual sunscreen!

Why leave your skin vulnerable for part of the year? In winter, reach for a daily moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30. Your skin will thank you!
