How much SPF do you really need to wear in the winter? “In the wintertime, particularly with a clear blue sky, there are more UVA rays—the kind that cause aging. I recommend an SPF of at least 30.” from fellow dermatologist Cheryl Karcher.
From Dr. Pilest : Sunscreen needs to be broad spectrum – that means it protects you from both UVB rays (the ones that make you burn and tan) and UVA – the ones that sneak in and alter your precious skin DNA. Altered DNA adds up to brown spots and wrinkles and those really ugly actinic keratoses. Dermatology Times published a recent article on new findings of just how fast your skin responds to UV light.
