Even Though It's Cold Out...

Even Though It's Cold Out...

I don't want to be a downer, but I just read that according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, nearly 77% of people are not using sunscreen regularly.

Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers and is primarily caused by sun exposure. Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, has slowly become the most common cancer type in women ages 25-29.

Just because it's cold out, doesn't mean you're safe from the sun. If you're the kind of person who lives for winter sports, you need a sunscreen that will be sweatproof, waterproof and last as long as you're out, so you don't have to bother with re-applying.

Himaya was started by 2 major snowboarders (one who created Duotone Snowboards, and one who was VP of sales for Burton Snowboards) so you know it works.

Their products are hypoallergenic and not tested on animals. They contain Vitamins E and C to replace nutrients that are lost during sun exposure. They're meant to be worn and forgotten about so you can focus on having fun outside.

Fit's Tip: Himaya makes a Cold Protection SPF 30 sunscreen to protect your skin against wind chill.

Thank you Fit!! This is very important., my lil son had to have 2 precancerous moles removed when he was 10. He's fine now a year 1/2 later....but what scares me is what if I weren't such an in your face kind of mom, always looking at my son and asking questions....it would've been really sad..

Very true. Getting sunburnt or skin cancer, for that matter, is really quite unpredictable. I've been sunburnt many times even without the sun out. ______________________________________________ I must say, adolescence is one hell of a ride!

This IS so important to address. People think that just because the sun is hiding behind the clouds you can't get burned. My husband NEVER puts sunblock on and it is such a bad example for our little man. I put in on all over every day. When I was in high school and put BABY OIL on myself when my friends and I went to the beach, I got sun spots on my arms that tested pre-cancerous and I had to have them lasered off. NOT FUN. Pale is the new tan, girls. Love the natural color of your skin!
