The answer’s an emphatic yes! And here’s some science to back that up: clouds filter out sunlight, but up to 80 percent of wrinkle-causing UV rays manage to still get through. Plus, UV rays can bounce off clouds and hit your skin directly. Bottom line: you should wear sunscreen on cloudy days.
Fortunately, gone are the days when slathering on SPF left you a hot sticky, white mess. Yes, sunscreens have caught up with our demands to provide light, skin nourishing formulas that don’t just sun protect but balance skin and actually transform it from within. Look for sunscreens with a cocktail of moisturizing (and mattifying) ingredients. Combine that with at least SP 30 and you’ll have a winner on your hands.
