Did you know that you should always wear sunscreen in the winter, too? Well, most people don’t, because there isn’t as much direct sun as there is in the summer, so they think they’re safe. But just because the sun isn’t burning the skin right off you in the winter, doesn’t mean that it’s not damaging your skin. Whenever I go outside in the winter, I always try to apply a sunscreen. My mom and sisters think it’s a little weird and I simply can’t convince them that even though it’s winter, the rays are still bad for your skin. That’s why I decided to write this blog post.
Here’s how it works. The sunlight is made up of two harmful rays: UVA and UVB. The first rays penetrate deep into your skin’s thickest layer and the second ones usually just burn the upper layers of your skin. Now, in the winter only UVB rays are lessened. UVA rays are always present and always harmful. These are responsible for signs of ageing and can cause skin cancers. So, if you weren’t convinced before, I hope you will be now.
Applying a sun protector is really not that time-consuming once you get used to it. You just have to add it to your daily routine. As with most products, it’s important to find one that suits you and, preferably, doesn’t hurt the environment. The sunscreen I’m using at the moment, for example, is a pretty great one. I’m proud to say it’s made in Belgium and it’s available worldwide!
I love the Biosolis Sun Milk SPF 30 for many reasons. First, you can use it on your face and body, which is great, because you only need one product. It absorbs very fast, doesn’t make your skin look shiny and doesn’t cause breakouts, which is a big problem with many sunscreens. This product is not only protective, but also nourishing. Plus, it’s water resistant and suitable for all skin types.
Last but definitely not least, I think this sunscreen is great because it’s coral reef-safe, free from nanoparticles and ECOCERT certified. Some of its ingredients also come from certified organic agriculture. Not many some protectors out there can claim to be all those things. If you’re not sure which product would be good for you, check this one out, I absolutely recommend it.
Protect your skin, be good to the planet and as always, thanks for reading! 💚
