Winter is in full swing. But even though days are shorter and the breeze is cooler, we’re here to remind you that UV rays in winter are still a thing. In fact, 80 percent of the sun’s rays can still penetrate through the clouds — causing everything from sunburn in winter and aging, to hyperpigmentation and skin cancer. On top of this, skin is inarguably more sensitive during this time, as lower temps can weaken the skin barrier and cause winter dry skin. That said, it’s nothing the best winter sunscreen can’t fix.
Choosing the best winter sunscreen
Use a moisturizing SPF to beat dehydrated skin
It goes without saying that an ultra-hydrating moisturizer is one of the best winter skincare products. If you’re used to a lightweight gel during hotter days, it might not be enough for preventing dry skin in winter. Instead, swap it out for a richer cream or hydrating serum — just like our own Resting Beach Face. This SPF30 Sunscreen Serum is designed to be a moisturizer and face SPF in one. It’s packed with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and Pentavitin®, which are powerful moisture-boosters that help restore skin's suppleness and volume. Think of it like a glass of water for your face!
Choose a lightweight, comfy formula with zero white cast
Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you want something greasy and pore-clogging. No matter the weather, Resting Beach Face’s unique SPF serum formula feels unbelievably lightweight and sinks in fast. This makes it the best sunscreen under makeup — no heavy, goopy feeling! Plus, it is sunscreen without white cast, no matter what your skin tone is.
For your body, Oh My Bod! is your best bet. This sunscreen lotion works for your face and body, which makes it a good multi-use product for all those upcoming holiday trips (no need to pack SPF twice!). With reliable SPF50 and a sweat- and water-resistant formula (up to 80 minutes), it gives you all the broad spectrum winter sun protection you need — whether you’re skiing down the Swiss Alps or making snow angels in your backyard. Again, no unsightly white cast here, just maximum hydration and nourishment for your skin.
Go for the glow
Dehydrated skin or dry winter skin can look dull and parched, but you can easily restore your radiance with Resting Beach Face. With a dewy finish and moisturizing formula, it leaves you with a glowy, healthy complexion. Don’t worry, it’s an oil free sunscreen that gives that cute glazed donut look in a minute.
