Summer may officially be over, but that does not mean it is time to put your sunscreen away. Did you know that you are actually at more risk for sun damage when out shoveling snow then when you are laying on the beach? UVA rays are just as strong during the winter months as they are in the summer. UVB rays are stronger in the summer, however reflection of the rays can cause them to be up to 80% stronger. Snow reflects 80% of UV rays, whereas beach sand reflects only 15%. Bottom line, do not put that SPF away! It is extremely important to keep using all year long.
