We're all the same... Spring arrives and what do we do? Run outside and bask! On terraces, in gardens, at the bus stop, on the nearest beach... But, don't assume that springtime rays are any less damaging than their scorching summer sisters. Here's why. During winter our melanocytes take a break. And when our melanocytes are off duty, our skin lacks the photoprotective pigments they produce. Which means springtime sun is a one way ticket to Sunburn City. Al fresco lunches, garden naps, shopping trips... No matter where we are, damaging rays are bouncing off every surface in sight. So, to avoid starting your summer burnt to a cinder, protect your skin!
