Why wear sunscreen when the sun is not out?

Hello everyone!

Many people think that just because the sun is not visible, that they do not need to wear sunscreen. That’s not the case. You can get harmful UV rays from other places than just the sun, such as florescent bulbs, reflection off surfaces and cloud cover.

Florescent bulbs are found in many offices and homes. These produce UVA rays that can harm skin cells.

UV rays can reflect off surfaces like water, sand, snow, pavement, or grass, leading to an increase in UV exposure.

The effect of clouds can vary. Sometimes cloud cover blocks some UV from the sun and lowers exposure, while some types of clouds can reflect UV rays and can increase UV exposure.

Keep your skin protected with an SPF of 30 or higher all year round!
