According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Sun damage can occur throughout the fall and winter months. Ultraviolet A and B (UVA and UVB) are the cancer causing rays - and UVA is present year round. The sun reflects off snow and can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin.
Here's 5 tips for staying sun protected during the cold months ahead:
1. Stay away from tanning beds.
2. Wear sunscreen daily. We recommend a full spectrum of SPF 30+ to use on your body and face.
4. Wear sunglasses and a hat.
5. Get your skin checked annually by a dermatologist.
