DO NOT step out without wearing sunscreen: 6 Sunscreens that are highly recommended
Protecting your skin from the sun should not just be a summertime habit. Your skin should be protected from the sun at all times, during all seasons and even when you are indoors. After all, harmful ultraviolet rays that are responsible for skin cancer, sunburns and premature aging, do not go away just because it is cold or cloudy outside.
The sun’s rays can shine just as powerfully on a cold day as they might during the summer. Hence, you must apply sunscreen generously and you must apply it often, even when it is a cloudy day. It may add an extra step to your everyday routine, but it's definitely worth it. Today, the market is filled with skin care products with SPF built in, sunscreens that are lighter and less greasy.
