Most people don’t need to think twice about liberally applying a sunscreen during the summer or when holidaying abroad, although when the bitterly cold long winter sets in, applying sunscreen is the last thing on many a mind.

The thing is though, whilst temperatures might be veering more towards freezing than scorching outside, this doesn’t mean that the sun can’t do any damage. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, as the sun’s rays could be quietly damaging skin without you even knowing it.

When temperatures are high, and if you’re unlucky enough to succumb to sunburn, the damage which the sun has done will be very visible. When the weather is colder though and skin isn’t protected, the sun could silently be having a very negative impact on skin.

This is why every single person out there needs to get into the habit of protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful rays whatever the weather.

There are many moisturisers and cosmetics out there which contain SPF, and of course there are also many standard sun blocks out there. Have a look at our site for more info and products



I have always had hyper-sensitive skin, particularly on my face, resulting in areas of itchy, dry eczema which now has been diagnosed as Rosacea along with the eczema. Also a close family member was diagnosed with a Maligant Melanoma skin cancer in 2007 forcing the whole family to become more aware of the effects the sun can have on our skin and how chemotherapy and other cancer treatments has such an effect on your skin too. I have subsequently spent time investigating the sun screen market to not only provide the right protection, but won’t cause skin irritation along with moisturisers and other products for after and during cancer treatment. I am not a medic; I am a mum with many years’ experience of having to deal with skin problems and was started because of this to find non- irritant products, research and information all in one place. I have found small tricks that can help along the way which I can share with you and hopefully relieve some of your problems with your skin.
