What Are the Benefits of Sunscreen and Do I Need to Wear It During the Colder Months?

Sunscreen has received conflicting press in the past few years, so you’re probably wondering if it’s beneficial to wear it, and if it’s necessary to put it on during the colder months. You might even ask “Does sunscreen make you break out?” The answer to these questions depends on the sunscreen you’re using. Here’s what you need to know about popular sunscreen ingredients and how you can protect your skin year-round in the most natural way.

Harmful Ingredients in Sunscreen Products

Most commercial sunscreen products contain harmful active ingredients that may irritate sensitive skin and mimic hormones. Common chemical filters in sunscreen products include:

  • Octocrylene
  • Oxybenzone
  • Homosalate
  • Avobenzone
  • Octinoxate
  • Octisalate 

These ingredients are put in sunscreens because they maintain stability in the sun and protect the skin from ultraviolet rays. However, laboratory studies show that these ingredients can cause unintended health repercussions. They can also irritate the skin and cause breakouts.

Use Natural Alternatives

Although sunscreens full of chemicals aren’t good for your skin, UV rays aren’t good for it either. Even in winter, UV rays can cause damage to your skin. So, how can you protect your skin without harming it with dangerous chemicals? Look for sunscreen that contains natural ingredients. Argan oil sunscreen is a great option if you plan to be out in the sun for small amounts of time. It’s rich in Vitamin E, which is shown to defend the skin against harmful UV rays. It’s also free of toxic chemicals.

You can further protect your skin from sun damage by regularly applying hyaluronic acid serum. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturizing ingredient, it can protect your skin from the harsh, dehydrating effects of the sun.

Moisturize After Sun Exposure 

In addition to using natural alternatives to chemical sunscreen products, you can further protect your skin by moisturizing liberally after sun exposure. Use skin hydration products that deliver nutrients to the deepest layers instead of sitting on the top layer. Timeless skin sprays offer the best skin treatment for sun-exposed skin and help it remain elastic and supple all year long.
