We asked Dr. Clare Foss, a high altitude skin care expert, for the do’s and don’ts of sunscreen and skin safety—whether it's at the beach or on the slopes.
Why Wear It?
No matter your beliefs about the state of our ozone, one thing is certain: It does not shield you from the sun’s harmful rays. Your safest option is wearing clothing that doesn’t expose skin, such as pants, long-sleeves, and wide-brim hats. However, that isn’t always practical. Cue the Coppertone. Wearing sunscreen will decrease your risk of developing skin cancer, slow the aging process to prevent, and protect your skin to improve its overall appearance.
