Do You Really Need SPF During Winter?

This winter season we’re more about ‘taking it off’ versus ‘packing it on’ when it comes to our beauty routine, but one product were huge sticklers for is SPF.

 

Why We Need A Good Winter SPF

But we still understand the question, is it truly necessary to use sun protection during the winter? What if we aren’t getting any “visible sun” and the days are dark and grey? The answer is still a big Y-E-S. The answer is still a big Y-E-S! The harmful rays of the sun are present during gloomy, winter days and those rays often reflect off the snow, making ample SPF both a beauty and health necessity. We all know the harmful effects the sun can cause.

That’s why we designed an all-purpose mineral sunscreen that’s both a powerful SPF protector against UVB and UVA rays and tinted moisturizer. DERMAPROTECT Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ is a universally flattering SPF tint which blurs, perfects and protects while adding dimensional color to the entire face for a seamless glow. Wear it alone, or under makeup, as a primer and let its rich antioxidants protect against free radical damage. Slow down the aging process and give your skin a healthy boost of color, while feeling good about doing good for your skin.

According to The GoddessGarden.com and Vogue.com, UVB rays are weaker in the winter so one does not sunburn as easily, leading many to think they don’t need SPF. However, the UVA rays that cause wrinkles, premature aging, and damage are just as strong in the winter so taking extra precaution with sunscreen helps to dramatically slow down aging. Don’t skip (or scrimp) on your SPF!

 

 

What Kind Of SPF To Use

For SPF coverage, we recommend using chemical-free protection with Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection whenever possible as the Environmental Working Group (EWG) not only warns us about ample sun protection, but also sticking to clean products as they can be absorbed into the skin.

According to Dr. Levy, a respected dermatologist, “…A sunblock [with] an SPF factor of 30 or above, to ensure adequate protection. Please do remember though that SPF only protects against UVB rays, so it is essential to check the sunscreen you use offers ‘broad-spectrum’ protection, i.e. from both UVA and UVB rays.” (Source)

100% Vegan, DERMAPROTECT does not contain harmful parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic dyes, sulfates, and chemical UV absorbers—just active mineral ingredients, such as zinc oxide and titanium oxide to protect your face against the sun.

And if you’re dermaplaning with a product like DERMAFLASH LUXE, it’s also doubly important to protect your skin’s layers with broad-spectrum coverage. But protecting your skin from both UVA and UVB isn’t the only benefit, DERMAPROTECT offers. It also acts as shield against harmful elements while blurring fine lines and age spots—serving as an all-purpose skin rescue.

More and more, we are finding out that the best skincare product against anti-aging and disease is sun protection. And with most experts backing up the need to use SPF with a minimum of 30 SPF, DERMAPROTECT 50+ ensures your super guarded against UVA rays (known as the “aging” rays) which can penetrate the skin and cause unrepairable damage.
