Hope all of you FABULOUS readers had a great Thanksgiving! Today we are happy to introduce a new guest contributor, Victoria. She is a health & beauty writer for Direct Sight (an online glasses retailer). Today Victoria talks about an important topic most people tend to avoid. Enjoy :)


So as November progresses and December looms, we all know that the days will get shorter and colder. However, when we turn up the central heating and pull on a warm winter coat, is it worth considering any other precautions? Sunlight and, in particular, UV rays are the single biggest cause of skin cancer. In addition, other unpleasant side effects of sun exposure include premature aging, wrinkles and age spots. Most of us will wear a scarf, or maybe even a hat during the winter months, but our faces remain exposed to the elements. Therefore, it’s important to take a few added precautions for skin and eyes in the colder season.

Firstly, it is worth investing in a light sun-protection for the face. It may seem excessive, but UV rays can prove just as dangerous, despite the cold. Up to 80% of UV radiation can also penetrate clouds, meaning gloomy days are deceptive when it comes to skincare. For women, look out for foundations and tinted moisturisers with an added SPF such as Olay Essentials Complete Care Touch of Max Factor Foundation which is a light moisturising cream ideal for the daytime. Many top brands now include SPF 15 in the formulas. However, it is important to remember to cover the entire face to ensure you gain the optimum level of protection.
