Do I really need to use a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) in WINTER???

This is a question that I get asked a lot and when I say YES you do, I get funny looks and am told that it's wet, windy and cold outside! Yes, it is but you still need to protect your skin in winter the same as you do during spring and summer!

The truth is that even in winter, the suns rays are still coming through the dark clouds and you can still damage your skin by the UVA and UVB rays. Even when you are in the car, the rays are coming through the windscreen. How many of you have Sun Spots on the backs of your hands??? Your hands are also exposed to these rays while you are driving so, you should protect them with an SPF all year round!!!

I strongly recommend using an SPF 50 but definitely nothing less than an SPF 30. We love the Heliocare range of SPF's and they even have one that has a colour in it so, there is no need to apply make up!!! Happy Days!!!

So the bottom line is whether you are having a Medical Aesthetic or Cosmetic procedure, you are skiing or are out in about in winter, don't forget to apply the SPF...
