Protecting your skin against UV damage is a year-round commitment. According to dermatologists, we should be applying SPF products in fall and winter too, even if you’re trapped in an office all day.

Yes, UVB rays are most intense from early spring to early fall – these are the rays that cause damage to the outermost layers of the skin and cause sunburn. UVA rays, however, are present all-year-round, even when it’s cloudy. Not scared of these three small letters? Well, UVA rays can penetrate glass.

UVA rays penetrate the skin much deeper too, causing genetic damage to cells, and are responsible for premature aging. Overexposure can result in wrinkles forming and age spots developing. They can also initiate skin cancers. In order to rest assured that your skin is protected against the full range of UVA and UVB radiation, you need to look out for products that are labeled “broad spectrum”. Unless stated, SPF ratings often only apply to protection from UVB radiation.

This is no exaggeration. SPF is a must. All. Year. Round. So scroll on to shop.
