You know that living in the Colorado climate is harsh on skin no matter what time of year. Denver is known as the mile high city, we are 5280 miles above sea level and the air is a bit thinner here. This is an amazing benefit for any athletic activity, but not so great for UV protection. And with our 300 days of sunshine a year, you are a prime victim for squinting and early sun damage. In addition to being closer to the sun, we are far from large bodies of water and yup, you guessed it, we are dry up here and your skin knows it. But are you going to stay indoors in Colorado? Not a chance!
