5 Best Sunscreens for Winter (Because You Still Need It Every Day)
If you live in an area that experiences all of the seasons, you’re probably used to switching out your makeup and skin-care products to account for the environmental changes. Once winter rolls around it’s all about rich creams and deep hydration. But one item you should make sure to keep handy year-round, winter or summer, is sunscreen.
Even though it may not be as strong or up for as long, the sun continues to emit harmful rays in winter. This means your skin is still susceptible to sun damage, making it imperative to apply broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher daily. To make sure you’re still getting enough sun protection, we’ve gathered five sunscreens that will fit perfectly into your winter skin-care routine.
