Yes it’s February and yes it’s cold but you still need to protect yourself and your skin from the sun. Although you might feel a little bit silly applying sunscreen in the middle of winter but it’s essential. In order to keep your skin in tip top condition plying on the sunscreen rather than covering up is essential – although covering up is probably at the top of most people’s agendas.
Even though you can’t see the sun much throughout the winter months, it is still just as dangerous and can have a hugely negative impact on the skin. You might think that some of the only dangers of the sun are skin cancer – which everyone thinks will never affect them – and sun burn. However, you have more to worry about than that. Damage from the kin is one of the biggest causes of premature aging – something that everyone wants to avoid – and although the signs are not obvious at first, if you carry on avoiding the sun screen you will start to see your skin aging before its years.
Many women avoid sunscreen because it ruins the look of their make-up, although it doesn’t have to. If you still want to be able to wear your favourite foundation then mix it equally with Dermalogica’s Solar Defence Booster to enjoy the coverage you want but with SPF 25 protection (with a 50/50 mix).
