Ski bunnies beware: Sun reflection off fresh snow almost doubles your UV exposure (not to mention that snow is usually encountered at higher altitudes, where the atmosphere is thinner, making UV rays even stronger).

So protect yourself when you hit the powder this winter with a safe sunscreen. To find a truly effective one free of nasty toxic ingredients, check out the Environmental Working Group’s 2012 sunscreen report at ewg.org/sunscreen.
