Why is sunscreen more necessary in the snow than at the beach?
While sand reflects only 15% of solar radiation, on snow the percentage can reach 85%. The altitude also increases the incidence of its rays.
The sun's rays hit the skin with greater virulence as the altitude rises above sea level. It has been proven that for every 1,000 meters of altitude, the damage caused by solar radiation increases by 15%. As if that were not enough, snow creates a mirror effect that reflects 80% of ultraviolet rays and the action of cold and wind on the skin dries it out easily, making it more fragile and susceptible to burns. Proper protection is not an option but an obligation.
SKIN SAFE with your sunscreen IN 3 STEPS:
The sun is not the only external agent that dries out the skin. Cold and wind also pose a full-fledged threat and weaken the skin, making it more susceptible to sunburn. The humidity of the beach exempts you from its use, but in the snow, it is essential to apply a good moisturizer before sunscreen.
With premeditation, please.
If you do it at the beach, why not now? Sunscreen should be spread half an hour before facing the sun's rays, and all the more so if you practice sports because sweating can diminish its effectiveness. This is the only way to ensure 100% active protection.
It is necessary to repeat the application every two hours and to intensify the sun protection measures as midday approaches, since the incidence of the sun is more direct.
