Outdoor activities can have unexpected sources of UV exposure. It’s important to remember that Summer isn’t the only time you need sunscreen. Did you know?
  • Snow reflects up to 85% of UV radiation- the effect is similar to a day at the beach.
  • The intensity of UV increases by 8-10% for every 1,000-foot increase in altitude.
    • For example, the intensity of UV exposure at 12,000 feet (the peak height of most ski resorts) is double that at sea level.
  • Eyes are particularly sensitive to this UV exposure—corneal (“snow blindness”) can lead to cataract formation and retina problems later in life.
  • Sun exposure can’t be ignored while swimming, either.
    • Up to 40 percent of UV rays can penetrate shallow water. 
  • Don’t forget reflected light: Sand, water and snow reflect between 25 and 80 percent of UV rays.
