The average temperatures in Brazil are declining because of the proximity of the cooler seasons, but this should not be interpreted as relief or relaxation in the daily use of sunscreen.
The solar radiation is a constant (although a little less) in the cooler times of the year, is present in the same way, even on cloudy days.
A constant confusion occurs in the minds of those who practice outdoor activities. It is common make a morning practice on cloudy days and finish it with burned skin (erythema present).
It is a mistake not to associate health risks caused by solar radiation during the cold seasons of the year. It is necessary to eradicate this very wrong view to associate “heat” with “radiation”.
Also in winter and cold weather the sunscreen and sunglasses are necessary for prevention in the development of diseases linked to solar radiation.
