Doctors remind people to wear sunscreen in cloudy winter weather

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- As we move into winter, researchers are reminding skiing enthusiasts to remember sunscreen and protective clothing.

A new study finds adults don't consistently protect themselves from the sun during the winter months by using lip balm, SPF 30 sunscreen, or wearing a hat with a brim.

Researchers say people are more likely to use sunscreen and protective goggles on clear days, but often base their clothing choices on staying warm, rather than UV concerns.
