Should I Wear Sunscreen Indoors? YES! Here’s Why

Think you can skip sunscreen just because you're sitting inside all day? Think again! A dermatologist explains why you still need to apply SPF even if you don't step a foot outside.

If you’re fortunate enough to work from home during the coronavirus pandemic, then you’ve probably got your morning beauty routine on lock by now. You wash your face, hydrate your skin and apply your no-fail makeup products (if you’re choosing to wear makeup at all) before you hop on your morning video chat with your co-workers.

But you might be forgetting an essential part of your beauty routine: sunscreen.

It turns out that if you want to protect your skin from the sun’s harsh UVA and UVB rays, you’ll need to put on sunblock every morning, according to medical experts, even if you’re staying completely inside.

Dr. Lily Talakoub, a board-certified dermatologist at McLean Dermatology & Skincare Center in McLean, Virginia, uses this sunblock daily.

“The antioxidant-rich blend provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection in an ultra-sheer, lightweight formula that absorbs quickly for a non-greasy matte finish,” she says. “It can easily be worn under makeup.”
