It’s winter... sunny times are far gone, beach umbrellas, boogie boards and bikinis have been put away – well except for that quintessential trip to Cabo or St. Tropez coming up over the holidays. But beyond the summer being months away, we should all be a little bit more concerned, the sun is still ever present!
As I just learned, from my all-knowing dermatologist, sunblock that is put on in the morning at 9:00 a.m. needs to be updated and re-applied by noon!! Where did I go wrong? I’ve been applying once a day just to go to the office or the mall for years, what did I know?! Well get in gear for the rest of the winter with some non-tropical application of the following SPF winter wonders.
Hop over to Walgreens.com for RoC’s Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 to ward off wrinkles and even help get rid of their experience, with at least 8 weeks of use. The sunblocking technology is created to protect against UVA and UVB rays.

Next for the hands... we know there isn’t much exposed during the colder months, but your hands definitely crack and get dry. Try Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Hand Cream Sunscreen SPF 15. This luxurious cream protects even after you've washed your hands! Don’t think that a few botox shots will hide your age in the future – the hands are a true giveaway!

Lastly, your luscious lips need all the shading they can get – chapped lips are not pretty. Aveeno Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner with SPF 15 seems to last ultra-long, why? Well they have a blend of skin conditioners, shea butter and jojoba oil. The lip balm can be used year round too!

So get on it – getting tan during the summer isn’t just the only harm during the year, bundle up safely!
