4 Reasons to Continue SPF Use this Fall

September 29, 2020

For far too long, people have associated sunscreen use with the beach, the pool, and summertime. We are here to remind you that sunscreen use is meant to be 365 days a year! Here’s 4 reasons why:

1. Skin Cancer

It may seem that skin cancer is so unheard of, but more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year than every other cancer combined. Not all skin cancers are as simple as getting a mole removed either, as melanoma is highly deadly. And there is such an easy way to decrease your risk: wearing sunscreen daily! COTZ Flawless Complexion SPF 50 is an incredible mineral sunscreen that is great for daily use. With a high SPF and broad spectrum coverage (meaning it covers both UVB and UVA rays), this product is super versatile for all skin types and tones, making it so easy to protect your skin from damaging rays. And don’t forget about your lips! Your lips are a sensitive area that is super susceptible to sun damage. With COTZ Lip Balm SPF 45 you get great coverage with a high SPF and it has a sheer tint so that it masks any white cast that you would typically get from an SPF lip balm.


2. UVA Rays Penetrate Clouds and Glass

You aren’t only getting UV damage when it’s bright and sunny out. UVA rays penetrate clouds and even glass! Although UVB (burning) rays are much stronger during the summer months, UVA (aging) rays are the same strength all year around. That’s why it’s so important to wear sunscreen every day. Even if you’re just going to the grocery store. Even if you’re just going to be sitting in your office. Even if you are just going for a short walk in your neighborhood. Wear sunscreen! COTZ Face Prime & Protect Tinted SPF 40 is super versatile and feels amazing. Adding this product to your morning routine is easy because it feels so great and it doubles as your makeup primer, so it doesn’t even add an extra step! Just make sure to cover your neck and ears too!  

3. The Sun is Still Shining

Just because the calendar says it’s officially Fall, doesn’t mean the sun has magically gone away. Even up here in the Northeast, the sun shines strong through December these days! Now that the humidity broke, it’s the best time to get outside and enjoy the cooler weather. We know that you all are an active bunch, so keep at it this Fall and stay protected with COTZ. We love COTZ Sport SPF 45 for those outdoor activities because it is so easy to apply and is great for use on both the face and body. 

4. Prevent Advanced Aging

We talked about how UVA (aging) rays are present and strong all year around AND they penetrate clouds and glass, but we did not get into what that means for your skin. UVA rays are the ones that are mostly responsible for premature aging, fine lines, and wrinkles. It is never too early to start using a great mineral sunscreen to slow down your skin’s aging. We love COTZ Face Moisture SPF 35 this time of year. As the weather gets a little cooler and drier, the ceramides in this product help retain moisture in your skin, so it’s perfect to pair with this weather change!
