Just as how you shouldn’t leave your umbrella at home, it is imperative you put on sunscreen 30 minutes before you step outdoors and get exposed to the punishing effects of the sun. And don’t think for a second that despite the lack of obvious sun, that you can skip out on this all too important aspect of skincare, because 80 percent of the sun’s UV radiation still reaches the earth during this weather. You see, there is no belittling the cloudy days.
