Most people don’t even think to put sunscreen on their faces when it’s freezing cold outside.But experts say it’s a good idea to consider doing it if you want to stop the sun’s UV rays from doing long-term damage to your skin. Even in the dead of winter, UV rays can still prove to be harmful to the skin on your face.If you would rather not have to worry about applying sunscreen to your face every morning, a beard will work just as well. It’ll provide your face with an extra layer of protection and prevent the sun’s UV rays from coming into direct contact with your skin.
