UV Lights in Winter

Yes, you read right, UV lights and the threat they represent don't just go away because winter has arrived and the weather is all gloomy and cold outside. In fact, there is even UV lights at night! I won't go into the scientific details of it and bore you (unless you REALLY want to know- in that case leave me a message and I will sent you the whole scientific review paper I wrote on this topic for uni-which I got a very good grade on in case your were wondering) but to summarize everything, the UV lights creates free radicals on your skin and this sets off a whole chain reaction leading to the early aging of skin-including sagging, wrinkles and dark spots (plus UV lights causes skin cancers). And in winter, especially in places that snows, the snow reflects the UV lights and hence increases our exposure to it. So wear SUNSCREEN. And here are some tips to it:

  • Apply sunscreen on 30minutes-1hour before sun exposure
  • I know it can be sticky, but do apply generously. Most people under apply sunscreen and don't get the full protection of it
  • Reapply every 2-3 hours
  • A sunscreen of SPF 15 for daily usage is also recommended.

Using a sunscreen of SPF 15 is sufficient for winter. A good sunscreen would be the Waterwhite Brightening Lotion SPF 15 by H2O.

And while you are at it, don't forget your eyes, this is where the first sign of aging shows! Try Waterwhite Brightening Eye Cream SPF 12 also by H2O.



All these H2O products are all oil free, so you won't have to worry about blocking your pores or anything if you have oily/combination skin (like yours truly). And this eye cream is not too strong either, at our age using a too strong eye cream will lead to bumps under our eyes!

Note: I know that all that has been recommended are whitening products also, but they just happen to be so. The authors of this blog does not believe that a whitening product actually exists.

I didn't understand that sentence.

So teeth whiteners don't work, you are saying?

What Barneys Girl meant about the whitening product, is that the H2O+ products we have recommended are supposedly skin whitening products. The H2O+ brand also offers other types of UV protection moisturiser (which do not claim to be whitening,) but since I have only tried this one, so we recommended this one.

Both Barneys Girl and I DON'T believe that SKIN whitening products actually work. But we DO believe that TEETH whitening strips work, (at least the ones from Colgate do.)

Skin whitening products and teeth whitening products are completely different. Most skin whitening products claim they whiten your skin by err... not very believable ways. Hope this clarifies the confusion.

Yes, and especially so because the wind and the harsh extreme weather in winter are also factors that contributing to the aging of skin.

For winter skin treatment you need special winter skin care products. And they should of course have UV filters!
