Winter SPF: It’s Important!

Since I can remember, I have heard a very interesting myth about winter. Many people believe that SPF is less important in winter because the sun does not cause as much harm as in summer. The heat of the sun is more noticeable in summer, so that people may think this. This doesn’t mean that we don’t absorb UV rays. Now is a good time to understand the difference between UVA and UVB.

Remember that a good Broad Spectrum SPF will protect you from both UVA and UVB radiation. These rays have distinct differences that make winter a good time to use SPF.

UVB- Consider B rays to be burning rays. Sunburns are caused by them the most. They can cause tanning, photo-aging, and skin cancer. It is important to note that most UVB rays are emitted between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. from April to October.

UVA — Think of A-rays as aging rays. These rays cause damage to the cells of the basal epidermis, where the majority of skin cancers occur. This is the most common ray used in tanning beds. These rays emit up to 95% of the radiation that reaches Earth. The UVA rays are between 30 and 50% more common than the UVB rays. They are equally intense during daylight all year long. Even in winter, our skin is still susceptible to sun damage as long as it’s daylight outside.

The good news: At jane-iredale, we offer a wide range of products to keep you protected all year round. Our SPF products contain Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, and other ingredients that FDA has approved as physical SPF. We’ll look at some of the occasions where winter SPF is essential and recommend some products that are highly recommended for each.

Every day:

We can wear it to the office, to the supermarket, or even just around the house. UVA/UVB protection is always important. Powder-Me SPF provides daily sun protection with a broad spectrum SPF 30 powder that comes in a retractable brush. The formula is lightweight but effective and can be used on the body or face. The purse-friendly meeting is vegan and environmentally friendly. It comes with two refill cartridges, a cover, and a convenient cover. You’ll be amazed at how easy and beautiful this brush is to use.

For the Lips:

We often forget to protect our lips from the sun. Our lips are very delicate and need SPF. Lip Drink Lip Balm is an excellent way to protect lips from UV rays and keep them hydrated.

Don’t forget the hands.

We wash our hands more often than ever in today’s culture. Hand sanitizers containing alcohol can dry out the skin on our hands, making it more susceptible to sun damage. Hand Drink hand cream SPF15 will protect and hydrate your hands against UV rays. The hand-drink essential oils feel great, and the lemongrass scent will refresh you. We recommend keeping it near your sink or in your purse.


jane-iredale Foundations have SPF built into the formula, so you don’t need to worry about applying it separately. Remember that our SPF has been proven to be water-resistant for up to forty minutes and is broad-spectrum. Our foundations are the best choice for many lifestyles. It’s now up to you which formula suits your lifestyle. Here are a few examples:

Dream Tint For the “no makeup makeup” look, Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer has our most sheer finish. It creates a flawless, clean look for those who do not want to appear as if they are wearing makeup. It is enriched with sea lipids, which prevent transepidermal moisture loss and increase skin elasticity.

The all-in-one makeup product. The Glow Time Mineral BB Cream has the highest coverage. Glow Time, with its quick application and ease of use, is the favorite foundation for those who wish to conceal hyperpigmentation without looking too overdone. It is a moisturizing cream that never feels greasy. It also contains an SPF range of 17-25.

The Legend of Amazing Base The first product by Jane Iredale to be launched was Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder. It was given the name Amazing Base by people who used it and exclaimed, “That’s Amazing!”. This product offers exceptional coverage, minimizes the texture, and creates a beautiful luminous glow while providing broad spectrum SPF 20.

Our most popular product in the world. PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation is the most popular product when people search for Jane Iredale. PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation is a favorite of makeup artists worldwide because it’s so easy to apply and portable. It has a broad-spectrum SPF between 15 and 20.

Jane is passionate about sun protection. She is a pioneer in the SPF physical arena. She has always been open about the ingredients and clean technology that we use to make our SPF products. She will be the first person to tell you that sun protection is important, even during the winter. Apply your winter SPF, and don’t forget that healthy skin is the best cosmetic.
