An SPF product is a must regardless of the weather. It's not just for sunburn: it prevents UV damage, premature ageing, and pigmentation too. Wearing a day cream with SPF 15 isn't enough to ward off the damage, even in the Winter.

If you loathe wearing sunscreen during the Winter (or any time of the year, to be honest), join the club. You just need to find the formula that's right for you. I now wouldn't dream of leaving the house without my Deciem sunscreen. If you're still an SPF hater, don't give up on it just yet, because there are plenty of sunscreens that don't feel like sunscreen at all. Forget those childhood memories of being slathered in that dreaded layer of white, sticky cream. These new formulas are so gorgeous you'll barely notice you're wearing anything.
