Sun Protection – For the mountains and at home

Did you know Vail receives an average of 300 sunny days per year? Regardless of your year-round location, continue your Vail vacation regime by staying protected with Supergoop’s “#1 piece of beauty advice: wear SPF”.

Here in the mountains, we are at higher altitude than you might be used to. With every 3,000′ increase in altitude, UV levels rise by 10-12%.  This sheer closeness to the sun makes summer visitors particularly susceptible to a case of sunburn.  It is recommended to apply a healthy layer at the beginning of the day, and then again every two hours.  Regardless of your location, don’t let cloud cover lull you into a false sense of security; it has been proven that 80% of UV radiation can penetrate light cloud cover!

Sun protection isn’t just for vacation. When it comes to sun protection, most people tend to think only about sunburns, which are caused by UVB(urning) rays. UVA(ging) rays enter the skin’s surface even deeper, leading to signs of aging and are the major culprits in skin cancer. The great news, all of Supergoop’s products are Broad Spectrum, and protect against Infrared rays too. Protect yourself. Every. Single. Day.™

 We recommend eye protection and Supergoop! Broad Spectrum suncare products to ensure protection from UV rays.
