Don't get Snowburned! Winter Skin Tip #3

Just because you can't feel, or even see, the sun as much during the winter doesn't mean it's not there doing damage. Because snow can act as a reflector, projecting rays back up onto skin, "snowburn" can sneak up faster than you may realize. Always wear sunscreen under makeup, and if you're planning an outdoor activity use a water resistant formula and re-apply often. If you're worried about messing up your makeup, try a powder or a tinted moisturizer with SPF, which will add a hint of color back onto skin when you reapply. Last but not least, don't forget your lips- using a lip balm with SPF will protect skin from chapping and prevent burn and sun damage at the same time.
