Although there is a seasonal drop in UVB rays, which cause sunburn and skin cancer, there is not a significant decrease in UVA rays, which cause skin aging and dark spots. Up to 80% of the sun's rays can penetrate clouds.
UV radiation exposure increases 4-5% with every 1,000 feet above sea level. Plus, snow reflects and intensifies sunlight.
Studies show that wearing sunscreen daily decreases the speed of the skin’s aging process by 24%. So if the health benefits aren’t enough to motivate you to wear SPF, let its antiaging properties persuade you!
