Why Sunscreen Isn’t Just a Warm-Weather Product

May 26, 2023

We all know that it’s smart to toss a favorite sunscreen in your bag for a tropical getaway, trip to the beach, or summertime picnic at the local park. But we often don’t consider the necessity of wearing sunscreen every day of the year.

Protecting the Skin Barrier

When it comes to your daily skincare regimen, protecting your skin’s barrier is a top priority. From fine lines and wrinkles, to sun spots and sunburns, too much sun is a leading cause of many harmful and unappealing skin issues. Protecting your barrier from harmful UV rays is not only good for your health, but has anti-aging benefits as well.

Choosing a sunscreen that contains physical blockers of harmful rays is important even in the cooler and darker months. Ingredients like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which protect against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, are key ingredients you should look for in an everyday sunscreen.

A Year-Round Sun

While the harsh rays of a summer afternoon spent outdoors are an easy reminder to reapply your sunscreen, it’s easy to make it less of a priority in the snow, rain, and darker seasons. But regardless of how sunny a day seems, harmful rays are ever present. With its reflective properties, sunshine’s UVA and UVB rays will still affect your skin especially during winter sports in the snow and near water.

You may even need to reapply sunscreen regularly (AKA every 80 minutes) during winter sports, as the wind and water can wash it away. Another tip for easy application? Choose a sunscreen with tint, so you won’t be wondering about a greasy or white residue, just a lightweight formula that blends in and elevates your skin tone.

Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50

Epionce Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50 Sunscreen is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective broad spectrum sunscreen, and was awarded “Best Under Makeup” by the Shape Magazine 2017 Sun Awards. It helps prevent sunburn and, if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. A light, quick-absorbing anti-oxidant rich sheer formula with just the right amount of color to let skin look bare, Daily Shield Tinted SPF is ideal for most skin types and tones. It’s water resistant for 80 minutes, and provides-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays.

No matter how little you may have considered SPF sunscreen in previous years, this spring is a great time to start taking your SPF-wearing more seriously!
