Sun Protection during the rainy season

It’s true: our skin can get the most damage from direct exposure to the sun on hot, sunny days. But we’re used to hearing that healthy skin only needs sunscreen protection during the summer – and that’s a myth!

The sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays are capable of penetrating cloud cover and hitting earth even during rainy season, when the weather is cool, cloudy, or windy. This kind of UV exposure is mostly indirect, but its effects can be just as harmful.

Here’s what you should know. You’re getting plenty of unwanted, indirect sun exposure when you

  • Sit in a car with untinted or lightly tinted windows
  • Put on SPF-rated makeup, but applied no sunscreen
  • Are walking outside and the sky looks bright, even if overcast (it’s called glare!)
  • Are doing something outdoors where indirect sunlight bounces off light-colored pavement. 


The solution to this is simple. Your skin needs protection from both direct and indirect sun exposure.

That’s right: you need to wear SPF products both on sunny and cloudy days. Make it a habit – and stick to it for life.

Your face, neck, and exposed parts of your body all need protection. Here are the products we recommend from Gluta-C’s line of facial and body care products.

It also has vitamin B9, which stimulates cellular growth, as well as Shea Butter that strengthens the skin’s natural barrier and gives it intense hydration.
