When summer rolls around, one of the first things we pick up is sunscreen. But truth is, we really need to use SPF all year long. Even during the dreary winter months, we’re still exposed to sunlight on our daily commutes. And that harsh office lighting can be doing your skin damage, not to mention all that exposure to blue light courtesy of our computers and phones. Winter also brings additional issues, like dry skin from being cooped up indoors with the heat blasting.
That means your go-to summer sunscreen probably won’t get the job done during winter. So what will? Look for sunscreens with moisturizing agents to give your skin that extra burst of hydration it craves this time of year. If combating environmental stressors and blue light is your end game, opt for a winter sunscreen full of antioxidants. Too tired to add another step to your winter regimen? Then pick a tinted formula that lets you skip foundation or concealer. There are even sunscreens with anti-aging benefits.
