You may think sun protection is not that important during the winter season. But did you know that snow reflects 80% of the sun's rays and that the sun is closer to the earth? Which means that the sun's rays are even stronger. So even though we spend less time outside and are more bundled up during the winter season, our face and hands are still exposed to the sun's harmful rays.
Whether playing in the snow or relaxing on the beach, it’s important to protect yourself and your whole family from UV damage no matter the temperature. It’s never too early to apply sunscreen!
Below are a few Coppertone products with something for everyone – mom, dad and kids:
· NEW! COPPERTONE® Water BABIES® Sunscreen Foaming Lotion: A unique, light and airy foam innovation from the #1 pediatrician-recommended brand. The sunscreen is mild for babies’ delicate skin. Available in SPF 75+.
· NEW! COPPERTONE® Water BABIES® Pure & Simple 2oz and 8oz: Offers sun protection that’s tear-free in an ideal size for the diaper bag. The ultra gentle formula is mild for babies’ delicate skin and won’t sting or irritate eyes.
· COPPERTONE SPORT® with Replenishing Antioxidants: Helps fortify skin’s natural antioxidant defenses, which can be depleted during sun exposure, especially during physical activity. They are ultra sweatproof to help maintain protection during outdoor activities and won’t run into eyes and sting. Available in lotions SPF 30, 50, 70+ and 100+ as well as continuous sprays SPF 30, 50, 70+ and 100.
