Winter isn't a reprieve from the sun; in fact, it can multiply the sun's threat to your skin while adding the harsh elements of wind and cold. Snow reflects up to 300 percent more ultraviolet (UV) rays than sand, and thinner air blocks less light, increasing the risk of sunburn by 4 percent with each increase in altitude of 1,000 feet. Kiehl's All-Sport “Non-Freeze” Face Protector SPF 30 Sunblock combats UVA and UVB rays while providing a top layer of skin-armoring moisture to guard against windburn.  The balm essentially creates a barrier between your face and the elements, locking moisture into your skin and keeping the cold air from drying it out. It's especially good for skiers, snowboarders and other people who love winter sports—but it's just as useful for those of us just trying to walk a few blocks in the freezing cold.
