Even though it does not snow here in Florida, a lot of people still head up north for the holidays.  Keep these tips in mind when you’re enjoying your winter wonderland!

Many people forget about sun protection in cold weather venues, but ice and snow reflect about 80% of the sun’s UV light, almost doubling the intensity of exposure.  Both snow and strong wind can wear away sunscreen, reducing its effectiveness.
Again, hats are important, and knitted winter hats made of high-tech, man-made materials will keep you comfortable as well as sun-protected.  Wraparound sunglasses with UV protection side shields will cut glare and block the most UV rays.
Clothing, sunscreen, and sunglasses are all essential parts of a comprehensive sun protection program.  Following these simple tips will enable you to maximize sun safety year-round, without sacrificing style or comfort!
