The answer is, with no doubts, a big YESS! In fact, when applied as they should be, sunscreens save lives and prevent an extensive range of skin problems. 

To give you a background, since the earliest civilisations the skin has been protected from the sun and heat, either due to aesthetics or to health, as they recognised the harmful effects of prolonged and unprotected exposure. From the use of clothing and accessories, followed by dark pigments applied to the skin, and only later with the use of the first sunscreens.

The science and technology allowed huge innovation regarding sunscreen formulation and, nowadays, the use of sunscreen is recommended every day of the year! Let’s dive in a little bit more.

Why do I need to use sunscreen in winter?

There is no off season for UV rays!

While the sun may not feel as warm or strong on your skin during the winter, its UV rays continue to break down your skin cells at a faster rate regardless of the season. 
This photoaging is responsible for the majority of the signs of aging, ie what makes you look older, with wrinkles, sunspots and discolouration,
Don’t also forget that snow and ice can reflect up to 90% of these rays and actually increase their intensity – very common conditions in Switzerland. 
 

If this is not enough, there is even a bigger issue than photoaging – skin cancer. There are several types of skin cancer, and according to WHO, melanoma is one of the most diagnosed cancers worldwide. Currently, there are about 2 to 3 million non-melanoma skin cancers per year, and about 132,000 cases of melanoma. Each year, the risk of developing skin cancer increases and that’s why wearing sunscreen is crucial for its prevention.

How to apply a sunscreen?

The question may sound silly as “everyone” should know how to use it, right? But, it is not that simple!

The quantity to apply should take into account the extent of skin to be protected, therefore, it will always be variable. However, according to the safety tests conducted in sunscreens, the application of 2 mg of product per each cm2 of skin is considered correct. Translating to a practical way: this is equivalent to 3 finger-lengths for most of the sunscreens. 

The recommended application frequency is every 2 hours, or whenever necessary: sweaty or wet skin, frequent bathing and time spent in the sun. physical filters may need to be shaken before use. 

In mist or mousse sunscreens like EVY Technology, it is important to respect the amount to be applied to ensure maximum safety.
