As the temperatures drop and the days get shorter, it's easy to assume that we don't need to worry about protecting our skin from the sun. After all, the sun's rays are weaker in the winter, right?
Wrong. While it's true that the sun's rays are less intense in the winter, they can still cause damage to your skin. In fact, the sun's rays can be even more harmful in the winter because the snow reflects the sun's UV rays, increasing your exposure. Not only can the sun cause sunburn and skin cancer, it can also contribute to premature aging and dark spots on the skin. That's why it's so important to use sunscreen year-round, even in the winter.
But how do you find a sunscreen that works for your winter skincare routine?
Our dermatologist offers a few suggestions!
Start by looking for a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. This will provide adequate protection against the sun's rays, even in the winter. Luckily all KLĒNSKIN products qualify - take a look for yourself!
Additionally, choose a sunscreen that is water-resistant. If you plan on being outside for an extended period of time or participating in winter sports, a water-resistant sunscreen will stay on your skin longer and provide better protection. Fear not, our sunscreen is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes — the most durable on the market!
And finally, consider using a moisturizer with SPF. The cold weather dries out your skin more than normal. A moisturizer with SPF can help to hydrate the skin while also providing sun protection. Our sunscreen uses a patented technology with encapsulated oils to add more moisturization benefits than other leading sunscreen brands. This also means our sunscreen leaves a soft, smooth feel with no greasy or sticky residue. Phew!
By incorporating sunscreen into your winter skincare routine, you can protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays and keep it looking healthy and radiant all season long. Don't let the colder temperatures fool you – sunscreen is a must-have for any skincare routine, no matter the season. Try out our best-selling SPF 50 Lotion for a moisture-filled and protected winter.
