We all know how important it is to wear sun cream during the summer months to protect our skin from the sun's harmful rays. But is this the only time of year you should apply sunscreen? Read on to find out why you might want to wear your old ski sun cream all year round!

When covered up in the winter months:
Sun cream is not just for the summer months when you're at the beach, or the winter months, when you dig out your ski sun cream from your holiday bag. It should be applied every day to protect your skin from UV rays, which can be harmful no matter what the season is. Despite being wrapped up and not feeling the heat, UV rays can still reach your skin through fabric. In winter, your hands, chest, face and neck are extremely vulnerable because they are not covered, and so sun cream should be applied to these areas every day, all year round. Also, remember that, if you are doing a winter sport, applying sun cream is even more important because the snow reflects the sun's rays, making you even more likely to burn.

When commuting to work or in the city:
Pollution can increase sebum secretion, impair your skin's barrier function and cause it to be hyper-sensitive, which means your skin is much more vulnerable to the sun's harmful rays. This means, when exposed to urban pollution such as industrial smoke and exhaust gases, it is vital that you give your skin the protection it needs. Furthermore, even though you are often sat behind glass, either on a train or in the car when heading to work, the sun's harmful rays can still reach you. You should, therefore, still ensure you are protected when commuting. The Ambre Solaire Daily Protection Mist is an excellent solution because not only does it protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays, it also helps prevent the harmful effects of pollution. Moreover, the advanced sensitive cream from the same range provides anti-shine and anti-imperfection action to reduce the signs of excess sebum on your face often caused by pollution exposure.

When being active:
We often forget to apply sun cream when exercising. However, if you are outside, you should be wearing sun cream no matter your age, gender or race. When doing a sport, you might be sweat and frequently wipe your face, causing many sun creams to quite simply run off. Consequently, you should apply a waterproof sun cream and always remember to reapply it. Even when doing water sports, it is important to apply sun cream. This is because water can reflect the sun's rays, increasing your risk of burning. The Ambre Solaire Sensitive Advanced SPF50 Face Mist is perfect if you are an active person because it is quick and easy to apply on the go. You can also get extra protection by using specific clothing or a lip balm with an SPF rating to protect your body and lips.

Overall, it is extremely important that you apply sun cream no matter the weather, season or activity. Whenever you are outside, you should be using it to protect yourself from the sun's harmful rays and to reduce the associated risks. For easy-to-apply daily protection, the Ambre Solaire Sensitive Advanced Face Protection range is an ideal choice. So, why not give it a go?
