How to choose skin care items for winter UV protection


During the cold winter months, our skin requires a different skin care approach than it does in the summer.

In particular, UV rays still affect your skin even in winter, so UV protection should be taken 24/7.

In this article, we will introduce how to choose the skin care items you need to protect your skin from UV rays in the winter, from their importance to the points to consider when choosing specific items.



What is UV rays in winter?



Do you think that there is less UV rays in winter?

In fact, although the intensity of UV rays in winter is weaker than in summer, they still reach the earth's surface and cause damage to the skin.

In particular, a certain amount of UVA reaches the earth's surface regardless of the season and penetrates deep into the skin, causing wrinkles and sagging.

That's why it's essential to incorporate UV protection into your winter skin care routine.



Basics of selecting items necessary for winter skin care measures



When considering UV protection in winter, it is important to choose not only sunscreen but also skin care products with high moisturizing properties.

In winter, the skin tends to dry out due to the drop in temperature and humidity, and dryness reduces the skin's barrier function, making it more susceptible to damage from UV rays.



1. Sunscreen



The most basic item that protects your skin from direct UV rays is sunscreen.

Even in winter, choose a product with sufficient SPF and PA values ​​and apply it not only to your face but also to exposed areas such as your neck and backs of your hands.

When choosing a sunscreen specifically for winter, we recommend choosing one that is gentle on the skin and contains moisturizing ingredients.



2. Moisturizing cream



In addition to protecting from UV rays, keeping your skin moisturized is essential for winter skin care.

Choose a cream that contains moisturizing ingredients such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid to prevent your skin from drying out.

Dry skin makes it more susceptible to damage from UV rays, so adequate moisturization will help protect you from UV rays in winter.



3. Lip balm



Dryness in winter also has a big impact on your lips.

When choosing a lip balm, choose a product with UV protection to protect your lips from UV rays. You can also prevent your lips from drying out by choosing one that contains moisturizing ingredients.
