Clouded Over: Why You Should Still Wear Your Sunscreen
While it may seem that no sun is getting through the clouds (hey, you certainly wouldn't be at the beach), there is still a need to apply your sunscreen. If there is enough light to see in front of you on a cloudy day, then UVA and UVB rays are still getting through. This means that not only can you still get a sunburn from the UVB rays, but the damaging and pre-mature aging UVA rays are also getting through. As you know, UV exposure is cumulative, so skipping sunscreen on just the cloudy days can still add up.
Apply and Reapply
This means that you should get in the habit of applying your sunscreen after cleansing and toning each morning despite the weather forecast. It is easier to prevent premature aging and skin cancer than it is to treat it later. Also, remember to apply your topical antioxidant at night to further protect yourself.
