It is well known that spending a greater amount of time in the sun without an SPF increases our risk of skin cancer. Damage from the sun is also one of the major causes of skin ageing. This is true even in the Winter months.
Always check your labels; SPFs should be labelled 'broad spectrum' to ensure you are being protected against both UVA and UVB rays. Plus, only products with an SPF of 15 or higher are actually proven to be able to protect against skin cancer and the ageing effects of sun damage. Labelling and effectiveness can also differ depending on the region of the world you are in; its best to check and ask if you're unsure.
