5 Tips for Taking Care of Your Lips

When it comes to lip care, you should never slack off, especially during the winter. That’s why we’re sharing our best tips for getting beautiful, healthy and kissable lips — just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Cold Dry Air Requires a Little Extra Skin Care

Here at The Skin Cancer Foundation, we spend a lot of time talking about skin cancer, but we’re also concerned with overall skin health. That means not only protecting your skin from sun damage, but also giving the largest organ in your body some TLC throughout the year.

Even Snow Days Are Sun Days

With a chill in the air and snow on the ground, it may seem that the risk of sun damage is rather low.  That simply isn’t the case. In fact, snow can multiply your UV exposure because it reflects the sun’s rays.

Don’t Fall for It: You Still Need Sun Protection

As the weather gets cooler and the days grow shorter, it’s easy to think that you don’t need sunscreen anymore. After all, you’re just taking the dog for a walk, running a few errands or going to work. You’re just outside for a few minutes. And you’re wearing a jacket. That should have you covered, right? Nope!

Layering Is the Key!

When the air turns cool, you may not feel the heat of the sun’s rays. But they still have the power to damage your skin, so follow our autumn guidelines to protect yourself!

Cycling and Sun Protection

Fall weather is perfect for bicycling, whether it’s a long-distance challenge or a leisurely family ride in the country. The sun is out, the air is crisp, the humidity tends to be lower — and the need for sun protection is as important as ever.
