The #1 Most Common Skin Care Mistake

Not Using Sunscreen
Some people think sunscreen is not as important during the winter months. UVA rays are always present, and can penetrate clouds, glass, and deeper into the skin. UVA damages deeper skin layers, resulting in premature aging and increased risk of skin cancers.Therefore your skin needs protection year-round. The one season you want to work harder to prevent dry skin and wrinkles, it's winter, so slather on that sunscreen and use it to keep your skin radiant. Winter's harsh weather is incredibly drying and taxing on skin.
