Why You Need Sun Protection Year-Round

Why You Need Sun Protection Year-Round

Happy Wednesday! Today is a fashion and health combo post. Who doesn’t love a good 2 for 1!? I want to dive into why you need sun protection year-round. You may remember my skin cancer story (read it here), so this topic is near and dear to me. It is a myth that once the summer sun is gone, so is our risk of sunburn and skin cancer. Just because we are wearing a jacket doesn’t mean that we aren’t getting those harmful rays! That is why it is so important to make wearing UV protection clothing and sunscreen a habit all year long. Dr. Jill Feetham weighed in on this during our IGTV chat which you can view HERE. Don’t worry, you don’t have to sacrifice your style to remain safe!
