It's easy to remember sunscreen when it's hot outside, but a little harder when all you see is rain, snow and sleet. Winter sunscreen may be the last thing on your mind, but it's very important to try and remember to put on a layer of safe sunscreen before going outside, even now when the weather is bad. During the winter you aren't as likely to get a sunburn, because the sin is sitting at a different angle. However, the sunlight that is around, is still chock full of radiating ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet exposure occurs even during the winter months. In fact, even when it’s cloudy there are still uv rays. Cutting your exposure to ultraviolet rays will cut your risk of developing skin cancer, and if you cut your baby's exposure now, you can help protect his delicate skin now and for years to come. The American Academy of Pediatrics says that babies should use non-chemical sunscreens if possible - see a list of the best non-chemical sunscreens. The best way to remember sunscreen in winter is to leave a bottle of safe sunscreen by your coats. It's also wise to toss an extra bottle into your diaper bag, in case you're out all day. During the winter you should apply sunscreen to the most exposed areas of your body – such as your neck, face and ears.
