Reasons Why You Need To Wear Sunblock Everyday No Matter What Season

By Ashmita, 04 Nov 2016

Winters are already here and we bet you have started skipping the sunblock from your beauty regime already completely forgetting about the Sun that still is shining bright up in the sky and is continously producing ultraviolet (UV) rays which is harmful to our skin not in one way but in many ways. Many studies have already proved that UV rays are responsible for various skin problems like freckles, rashes, sunburns and premature ageing. sO skipping a sunblock is a big No, no matter what season it is. Still not convinced ? Read more..

1. The UVA radiations from the sun are as powerful in winters as they are in summers.

Do not be misled by the dropping temperatures. Experts suggest "The Sun's harmful rays are just as strong and damaging despite what your thermometer says -- particularly the UVA rays which are responsible for aging skin. UVA radiation reaches deeper into the skin and contributes to wrinkles and skin cancer risk. Nearly all (95 percent) of the UV radiation that we are exposed to is UVA"

2. Clouds do not stop the UV rays from reaching you.

Up to 80% of the UV rays can easily pass from the clouds and this is the reason why you still might end up having sun burn on a cloudy day if you go out without wearing your sunscreen lotions.

3. Ozone gets thinner in cooler temperature.

The ozone layer is supposed to prevent the UV rays from the sun from reaching us but apparently, as the temperature falls, the ozone layer also gets thinner thus increasing the chances of our exposure to UV rays.

4. Sunscreen does not hamper your Vitamin D intake.

Since it is necessary to take Vitamin D from the sun, especially in winters, people think that wearing sun block would obstruct their Vitamin D intake which by the way is a myth. Applying sunscreen does not block 100% of the sun rays and you get enough Vitamin D even while wearing sun screen.

5. Snow reflects 80% of the UV radiation.

It is highly important to wear sunscreen in hilly areas during snowfall or when you participate in activities like skiing or snowboarding because reflection of radiation from snow requires aggressive sunscreen protection. Almost 80%of the UV radiation is reflected from snow while only 25% from sand.

We recommend you Neutrogena Sunblock which blocks both UVA and UVB rays. It gives a matte finish and is non whitening, waterproof, fast absorbing and light weight. The product comes in various SPF ranges like 30, 55, 70 and even 100. So pick one according to your requirement.
