I’ve really been trying to look after my skin lately and during the summer I put SPF30 on religiously, not missing a day even if it wasn’t sunny outside and because of all this I didn’t get burned in the summer even when I went on holiday.
But now winters coming around I find it hard to think about wearing SPF, especially in the UK as I swear you don’t even see the sun October- June! So its hard to remember to slather on the sun cream every morning.
I do think that in England SPF30 is too strong in the Winter so I like to use SPF15 instead every day.
So why should you use SPF in Winter? Here are some reasons you should wear SPF every day all year round!
1. Up To 80 % Of The Suns Rays Can Penetrate Clouds
Even if its really cloudy outside it doesn’t mean the strong UVA rays won’t harm you.
2. Prevents Premature Aging
You don’t want to undo all that hard work you did by wearing SPF in the summer only to do lots of damage in the winter. Studies reveal that people below the age of 55 who used sunscreen had 24% lesser chances of developing ageing signs than non-sunscreen and occasional sunscreen users.
3. Lower Risk Of Skin Cancer
Wearing SPF every day all year round will help reduce the risk of skin cancer.
Don’t forget that you don’t have to use just sun cream anymore they usually come in the form of moisturisers and there are lots on the market so keep trying them out until you find your perfect formula!
Your skin will thank you for it in the future remember that it takes 30 years for sun damage to appear so the damage you did in your 20s or younger will start showing up in the form of wrinkles during your 50s and nobody wants that.
