EHA Clinic | 8 Jun 2015

If it’s cold or cloudy outside, you don’t need sunscreen. Is this true?

Unfortunately, rain or shine you still need to apply sunscreen, Up to 40% of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation reaches the earth on a completely cloudy day. This misperception often leads to the most serious sunburns, because people spend all day outdoors with no protection from the sun.

Always remember to buy a high-quality product with an SPF of 15 or higher; check its ingredients to make sure it offers broad-spectrum protection.
