Protecting Your Skin While Skiing

The holidays may be over, but the cold, bitter temperatures are here to stay – at least for another few months. It is extremely important to protect your skin while outside this winter, especially when enjoying the ski slopes. 

According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, "Winter sports enthusiasts are at increased risk for overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The combination of higher altitude and UV rays reflected by the snow puts skiers and snowboarders at an increased risk of sun damage, and ultimately skin cancer. More than 90 percent of all skin cancers are associated with sun exposure."

Many people are unaware that UV rays can be damaging while skiing. This winter (and throughout the entire year), pledge to wear sunscreen & your wristbands/stickers. Your skin will thank you!
