Arizona's Winter Wonderland Leaves People Wondering About Sun Burns

Longtime residents and visitors are as susceptible to skin issues during the cold season as in summer.

Scottsdale, AZ - Sun burn, dry and itchy skin, rashes, and other issues are nearly as likely to occur in the winter as when the summer heat hits Arizona. All because residents and tourists let their guard down.

"This is very true," said Natalya Borakowski. The licensed aesthetician and owner Desert Bloom Skin Care Center in Scottsdale says she hears this argument often from her customers.

"Many people believe sunburn is the worst thing that can happen to their skin and that it can only happen during the summer. But the reality is that the sun is still strong enough to cause damage to skin. It might not be as intense during the cold season, but hyper pigmentation and even skin cancer is still very likely."

Varying climates also play a role in causing skin problems, especially for avid skiers who travel frequently to Northern Arizona from Phoenix. "Visitors are more likely to listen when I advise them to wear sun block. However local residents often forget about sun screen during the winter and ignore the fact that the sun is still dangerous even if it's cold outside. "

Skin cells have been known to experience severe DNA damage after only ten minutes of unprotected exposure to UVA and UVB rays from the sun. "It doesn't matter if it's 112 or 32 degrees outside. The rule of thumb should always be that if it's sunny outside, wear sun block."

To make matters worse, skiers often experience wind burn in addition to sun burn. This results in more severe skin peeling, redness, and even pain. Borakowski points out that snow is a good reflector of sun rays, which intensifies exposure and causes additional damage. "On a sunny snowy day, you will get a sun burn much faster."

Borakowski strongly recommends using deeply hydrating creams during winter and to make sure they are oil based, not water. "Water based creams can freeze on the skin creating micro crystals and damage its structure. Shea butter, coconut oil, and coconut butter are much better choices."
