Just because summer is over doesn't mean the adverse effects of prolonged exposure to the sun isn't a concern.
Warmer weather puts you at risk perhaps more so only because more of your skin is exposed to the sun. A few trips to the beach or a penchant for laying in the sun probably constitutes for more than a few overviews of your body, searching for spots that are burned or double checking some suspicious moles.
The misconception is that winter is a break of sorts from the sun, since most of the time you're bundled up and only your face is subject to the sun.
Not only does the sun still present a problem in the winter for your face, but the cold weather runs roughshod over your skin, creating dry, cracked skin that hardly is soft to the touch. As far as wintertime sunshine, you certainly have the option to continue wearing sunscreen, should your travels bring you outdoors during colder months.
Activities such as skiing or ice skating are enjoyed even with the temperature dips, but sunscreen still should be part of your game plan. Sun Bum Clear Face Stick is a nice option, made just for your face, and goes on neatly and cleanly.
