Should I Use Sunscreen During the Winter?

As the temperatures drop and the days grow shorter, it's easy to think that you no longer need to worry about the sun's harmful rays. However, when it comes to protecting your skin, sunscreen should be a year-round essential part of your routine . Even during the Australian autumn/winter, the sun still poses a risk to your skin's health and appearance. Below is why using sunscreen during the winter months is crucial and how our all-natural sunscreen can be your skin's best friend.

Is the sun less intense during the cooler months?

While it is true that the intensity of sunlight can vary depending on the season and your location, it's still important to remember that harmful UV rays can still reach your skin,  even on cloudy or cooler days.  That is why our broad spectrum sunscreen is essential every day.

Is it possible to get sunburnt in winter?

Absolutely. A common misconception is that windburn is to blame for redness during winter. People often mistake sunburn for windburn after a day spent outdoors . The Kind Sunscreen not only protects your skin from sunburn but also adds moisture and locks it in to keep your skin shielded from windburn.

Do UV rays penetrate clouds?

Cloud cover might make the sun less visible, the UV rays can still pass through clouds, putting your skin at risk of damage. Even on overcast days, up to 80% of UV radiation can still reach through causing potential harm to your skin.

How does winter impact UV exposure?

During winter, the Earth's tilt causes the sun's rays to hit Australia at a more direct angle. This means that the UV index can still reach high levels.  Snow can also reflect UV rays, increasing the risk of sunburn and damage to your skin.  

Why sunscreen is necessary in winter.

Using sunscreen during the autumn/winter months is essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. UV rays can cause premature aging, sunspots, and an increased risk of skin cancer. By including sunscreen into your daily skincare routine, and making sure to reapply throughout the day, you can protect your skin from these damaging effects year-round.
