It's the age-old question: “Do I need to wear sunscreen during the fall?” The answer is a resounding “YES!” The most common misconception people have is that they don't need sunscreen during fall because the sunlight during this season is limited. The truth is, fall can be the most dangerous time for skin.
With temperatures cooling off, it's easy to forget that the sun's UV rays can still be damaging to your skin. Many people stop using sunscreen and moisturizer, leaving their skin susceptible to harsh environmental factors. It’s important to remember that while UVB rays (which usually cause burns) weaken during this season, UVA rays, which are responsible for fine lines and premature skin aging, are strong all year round.
Because your skin can also be more prone to dryness and dehydration in the fall, you can kill two birds with one stone by using a moisturizer that contains SPF. DP Derm’s Best SPF Moisturizer for the Face is a healing cream that does exactly what its name suggests – it Covers (protects) and Recovers (heals).
Cover Recover is a full spectrum sunscreen, moisturizing cream, foundation, and a post-procedure cover-up, all in one amazing product. Cover Recover also has an SPF of 30 and contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to maximize ultraviolet and free radical protection, as well as revive old cells, and stimulate renewed collagen production.

While not as harsh as winter, fall weather is generally cold and dry which can strip the natural moisture from your skin, thus making your skin dry and flaky. Cover Recover works as an excellent daily moisturizer and foundation, and is suitable for all skin types. This powerful all-in-one cream contains DP Dermaceuticals patented HylaFuse complex, which makes it a perfect lightweight solution for the colder months. The HylaFuse complex is triple weighted so that it is effective on all layers of the skin, thus guaranteeing optimal moisturization and even acts as a second barrier, offering skin more protection.
Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful humectant meaning it can hold several times its own weight in water, which makes this cream not only a moisturizing cream but also hydrating. This is exactly what your skin needs and what makes Cover Recover the Best SPF Moisturizer during this season.
DP Derm’s Cover Recover can also be used as a daily foundation and is available in 9 shades giving full coverage for different skin tones, including our newest shade - Ebony!
Wearing SPF moisturizer in the fall can help to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated. When you use sunscreen with moisturizing ingredients, your skin will be more protected from chapping, dryness and harmful UV rays.
