Should You Wear Sunscreen In The Winter?

Did you know even during winter in Australia the UV index can still reach above 3? This means even during winter when the sun may look like it is hiding, you are still being exposed to UVA and UVB rays. These rays can cause sunburn, skin aging and eye damages, as well as melanoma and other skin cancers.

So Should You Wear Sunscreen In The Winter?

By being sun smart even in winter, which is a slip, slop and slap away, you will be saving your skin and eyes for the future. So buy the BEST anti-aging products on the market, and these include a good sunscreen.

A long sleeve top (cause you are old anyway), some SPF 50+ sunscreen and a hat are considered the way to go when it comes to the top anti-aging products. And it doesn’t always take 50+ SPF sunscreen to start getting the health benefits either. During the winter, wearing a good SPF30 sunscreen has been shown to delay melanoma if applied before exposure to ultraviolet-B (UVB) light.

So to answer the question posed in the title of this article, yes, you should be wearing sunscreen in the winter sun.
