Cold Weather Sunburn


Sunburn can occur even when it's cold outside. The sun's rays reflect at all angles from the snow, ice and water. Apply sunscreen to your kids before they go outside to play in the snow. Exposed areas such as lips, nostrils and eyelids can be especially vulnerable.

Also, the higher in altitude you go, the quicker sunburn can occur. Keep this in mind while skiing, snowboarding, or tubing.
