Sun-Screen In Winter?

In the summer it is easy to remember to put on sun screen. It is warm, and the sun is out reminding us to protect ourselves. But as the days get shorter and the temperature drops, it is easy to forget that the sun is still out. Sun damage (and skin cancer) results from the accumulations of solar radiation. That means that even in winter exposed areas should be protected. While most of us layer up with clothing, the face and hands are typically exposed. Adding a 30 SPF or greater to your daily routine in the morning will protect your skin (even in the winter) and decrease the overall amount of solar radiation you get.
