This article is here to get you prepared, whether to provide a barrier for frosty walks or to slather on during winter sports. We list ten bestsellers from top brands such as Origins, Piz Buin and Neutrogena, easily ordered from Boots, John Lewis, and Amazon.

With Specialist Consultation From Dermatologist Felipe Partarrieu

Felipe Partarrieu is a final-year dermatology resident, who is GMC registered with a full licence to practise in the UK. Specialising in cosmeceuticals, facial skincare, and hair disorders, we worked with Felipe to bring you top quality information to help you make informed buying decisions and understand more about what goes onto your skin.

The Benefits of Wearing Sunscreen in the Winter and Why You Should Wear It

The Benefits of Wearing Sunscreen in the Winter and Why You Should Wear It
For two-thirds of the year, the UK is seemingly plunged into darkness, and looking out the window at overcast grey skies, you may wonder why wearing sunscreen would be necessary. It’s understandable to presume that no sun means no need for sunscreen, but that’s where you are wrong – skin protection is essential year-round

Harmful UV rays are still present even in the depths of winter, and although cloud coverage lessens the likelihood of sunburn, you need to be vigilant. UV rays do more than just cause painful burns; they penetrate the skin causing damage on a microscopic level that, over time, leads to unwanted skin changes and premature ageing.

What's even more concerning is that prolonged exposure to UV radiation can eventually develop certain skin cancers and melanomas. It's essential to continue with regular sunscreen application during winter to create a deflective barrier between UV rays and your skin, even on cloudy days.

Sunscreen should be worn 365 days per year, no matter the weather or latitude. Moreover, snow and winter sports expose us to more UV radiation, increasing the chances of sunburn and long-term solar damage. Even though the cloudiness of winter lessens the likelihood of sunburn, UV radiation still penetrates through and reaches your skin.

How to Choose a Winter Sunscreen in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Pick a Sunscreen That Contains Both UVA and UVB Protection
  2. Choose a Sunscreen With a High SPF of 30 or Above
  3. Match the Ingredients in Your Sunscreen to Your Skin Type
  4. Opt for a 2-In-1 Sunscreen and Lip Balm for Full Protection

1. Pick a Broad Spectrum Sunscreen That Contains Both UVA and UVB Protection

1. Pick a Broad Spectrum Sunscreen That Contains Both UVA and UVB Protection

Ensure Your Sunscreen Has UVA Protection to Block Rays That Penetrate Deeply Into the Skin

UVA or “long wave” rays constitute 95% of the ultraviolet radiation from the sun that reaches the earth. While UVA rays don’t cause immediate surface-level skin irritation such as burning, they penetrate deep into the dermis, damaging the skin's fibres. Irreversible cell damage from UVA rays results in wrinkle formation and skin discolouration.

Even if you are not concerned with beauty, you should be aware of these rays when it comes to health. UV radiation has been proven to cause basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, two of the most common forms of skin cancer.

While the overall strength of UV fluctuates throughout the year, the percentage of UVA stays largely the same regardless of the season. These rays penetrate exposed skin and permeate the fabric of your clothing and glass, making you susceptible to their effects even indoors on cold and cloudy days!

UVA radiation represents 95% of the total UV radiation that reaches the Earth's surface, and it's the primary type of light used in tanning beds. 


Due to its longer wavelength, it has slightly less energy than UVB radiation, but it's able to reach the deeper layers of the skin where it exerts its effects: DNA damage, loss of elastic fibres and inflammation, all of which lead to wrinkling and premature ageing (remember ageing = UVA). UVA radiation is also proven to contribute to developing some forms of skin cancer.

Protect Your Skin From Rays That Are Amplified by Snow by Opting for a Sunscreen That Safeguards Against UBV

UVB or 'short wave' rays don’t penetrate the skin as deeply as UVA. Significantly lessened during the winter months, they aren’t strong enough to pass through glass or heavy cloud coverage. However, that is not to say they aren’t of concern during the winter.

UVB rays are the ones that cause redness and burning. Sunburn is much more than a painful nuisance that can ruin your holiday: it plays a significant role in developing melanoma. Melanomas can spread rapidly throughout the body, making them the most dangerous form of skin cancer.
This may come as bad news to skiers, but it’s much easier to suffer sunburn on the slopes than on the beach. This is because snow and ice reflect sunlight and UV rays, putting you at greater risk. Plus, in the mountains, the higher the altitude, the more amplified UV rays become, growing in intensity up to 12% per 1,000 meters!
Felipe Partarrieu
Dermatologist

UVB radiation only represents 5% of all the UV radiation that reaches us, but it is responsible for sun-induced redness and burns (Remember Burns = UVB), and it's linked to the development of some skin cancers.


Although UVB radiation is at its weakest during the winter and doesn't readily penetrate through glass or clouds, it is still capable of causing sunburn at high altitudes and on reflective surfaces such as snow or ice (snow reflects up to 80% of UV radiation), all of which happens more often during the winter.

2. Choose a Sunscreen With a High SPF of 30 or Above to Provide Yourself With a Minimum of 97% Protection

2. Choose a Sunscreen With a High SPF of 30 or Above to Provide Yourself With a Minimum of 97% Protection

As you probably know, SPF is the measure of protection a particular sunscreen has against UVB rays. The factor number relates to the percentage of UVB rays (measured in photons) which are blocked by the sunscreen.

Most dermatologists recommend sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or above during the winter. Factor 30 sunscreen gives around 97% protection from UVB rays. If you're particularly pale or sun-sensitive and want the best protection possible, you could pick a factor 50, which blocks an impressive 98% of rays. 
Felipe Partarrieu

A higher sun protection factor (SPF) will provide more protection, but remember that no sunscreen is 100% effective at blocking out UV rays. Most dermatology societies around the world recommend using a sunscreen that’s 30 SPF or higher, no matter the skin tone, time of the year or latitude.

3. Match the Ingredients in Your Sunscreen to Your Skin Type: Aloe Vera Is Great for Dry Skin, but Squalene Is Best for Oily Skin

3. Match the Ingredients in Your Sunscreen to Your Skin Type: Aloe Vera Is Great for Dry Skin, but Squalene Is Best for Oily Skin
Cold air, harsh winds and indoor heating ravage skin during the winter. When deciding on a suitable sunscreen for winter, try to find ones with ingredients that lock moisture into the skin. Some key ingredients to look for are vitamin E, aloe vera, trehalose, squalene, shea butter, and glycerin.
Using a sunscreen with moisturising properties will help you avoid dry, flaking skin without needing to use multiple products. Not only will this save you time and money, but slathering fewer creams on your face can prevent clogged pores from product buildup. 

For those with oily skin, making sure that your moisturiser isn't overly moisturising is key to keeping your sunscreen effective in blocking harmful rays. Instead of looking for a sunscreen with a lot of ingredients, opt for fewer and look out for formulas that include glycerin or squalane.


There's nothing better than a nice face mask at the end of a cold winter's day. It will do wonders for hydrating your skin after being exposed to the elements!

Felipe Partarrieu
Dermatologist

Given when the lower air humidity level is present in winter, the water in your skin evaporates more quickly, making your skin feel dry and tight. It's important to distinguish a moisturising sunscreen from a moisturiser with sunscreen agents.


You should always prefer the former because the SPF effectiveness of the latter will always be lower and might not offer enough protection. Some ingredients to look for are hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and vitamin B5.

4. Protect Your Entire Face by Opting for a 2-In-1 Sunscreen and Lip Balm

4. Protect Your Entire Face by Opting for a 2-In-1 Sunscreen and Lip Balm
On a sunny winter day in the mountains, it can be easy to forget about one crucial place: your lips. But they are just as susceptible to sunburn as other parts of the face, making it equally important to cover them up with SPF, especially in places like ski slopes or the sea where the sun can be reflected from below.
Some sunscreen products designed specifically for winter sports contain an SPF lip balm built into the tube, so you’ll have no excuse to not protect those lips from the sun wherever you are.

Make sure you're also stocked with a decent hand cream for the winter too!

Felipe Partarrieu
Dermatologist
Felipe Partarrieu

Most people forget about the lips when they think about good sun protection habits. Unlike the rest of the body, lips have no ability to produce a protective suntan and also have a thinner epithelium (outermost layer), making them prone to burning


Over time, this can lead to a loss in volume, discolouration, wrinkling and even cancer. Therefore, it's of the utmost importance to choose a proper lip balm that both moisturises and offers high UV protection.

Tips for Applying Sunscreen in Winter

Tips for Applying Sunscreen in Winter
Now you know which sunscreen to buy, you should read up on how to apply it properly – most people tend to only apply around 25% to 50% of the recommended amount! Ideally, you should apply 2mg of sunscreen per cm2 of skin; that’s about a shot-glass-sized amount for the whole body.

Throughout the day, sunscreen loses its efficacy, which can be for various reasons such as rubbing off from touch or perspiration and UV degradation. You should aim to re-apply regularly at 2-hour intervals during daylight hours for sustained coverage.

In the winter you should apply sunscreen most thoroughly to areas of exposed skin such as the face, hands and neck. Take care when rubbing in to ensure even coverage without gaps, and use gentle pressure when applying to the sensitive skin around the eyes.

    Top 10 Best Body Sponges in the UK 2021 (So Eco, Foamie and More)
    Everyone loves the feeling of stepping out from a long, warm shower or bath and feeling wonderfully fresh and clean. It can be difficult, though, to reach tough spots and get a really good scrub with just your bare hands. A body sponge (which can also take the form of a loofah, a scrubber or a bath lily) is a way of getting that deep clean you're looking for. There are many ways that a body sponge can upgrade your showering experience, including providing that all-important exfoliation, boosting your circulation, and even staving off acne with the use of antibacterial materials. To help you achieve that super-soft skin feeling, we've found the best body sponges to buy from Amazon, Boots, The Body Shop and more.
