Doesn’t feel so seasonal to be writing about sun protection as fall (in the northern hemisphere) has started, the clouds are beginning to roll in, and the daylight hours are getting shorter and shorter. Especially here in the Pacific Northwest, I have to admit, I start to get a little less anxious (okay, A LOT less anxious) about the possibility of the sun burning my family in the fall and winter months.
I apply a sunscreen each morning via my daily moisturizer. No matter the season or weather forecast. Admittedly, my skin is the fairest of fair, freckled, and just asking to be burned. I get sunburned just thinking about the sun. Not really, but I have been burned indoors. You just never know. It’s important to take a few sun safety steps no matter the season.
The other reason to be thinking about sun safety and protection this time of year? Travel.
