Is it Important to Wear Sunscreen During Winter?

We’re all guilty of it… winter comes along and with all good intention, the sunscreen takes a back seat and we worry less about the damage that the sun is doing to our skin.

Unfortunately, although the risk level fluctuates from season to season, our skin is susceptible to UV-related sun damage all year round.

The good news is that we have a great range of sunscreens to choose from, depending on skin type, budget, look, feel, there’s something to suit everyone.

This week we are promoting winter skin safety and want to offer a guide to help you pick the right sunscreen for your skin this season.

From a little bit of trial and error, we believe we've found some of the best sunscreen options, and we've put them all in a little list, so that you don't waste any time in finding your perfect sunscreen match! Get ready to slip, slop, slap!
