Let’s face it we’re not used to glorious sunshine here in the UK, whenever we are blessed with blue skies and soaring temperatures we can’t believe our luck. It’s easy to get caught up in the joys of flip flops and ice creams but protecting our skin from the sun, whether at home or away, is a must that should not be forgotten.
The sun’s ultraviolet rays penetrate deep into your skin and damage cells, leaving them weakened and at risk of becoming cancerous. Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the UK and it’s on the rise. It has never been easier to stay sun safe, so with some sun savvy and a few smart products you’ll be free to have fun in the sun!
Don’t get caught out, be prepared with my handy summer skin heroes…
1. Your face is constantly exposed to the sun, prevent premature ageing and sunburn by wearing protection of a high factor on your face everyday. Even if it doesn’t look like a scorcher when you look outside, it’s important to protect your face from UV rays. Replace your day cream with Ultrasun Face SPF 30 Anti-Ageing Formula.
2. Don’t neglect those hard to reach areas! Avoid a sore red nose and peeling ears, with a nourishing and convenient stick formula. Clarins Sun Control Stick For Sensitive Areas UVB/UVA 30, perfect for mess-free protection on the go. The Mango butter’s summer scent is irresistible too!
3. There’s no need to sacrifice your makeup for sun protection, enjoy the best of both worlds with a skin friendly formula that won’t clog pores or make foundation slide off your face. I’ve fallen for Elemis Liquid Layer Sunblock SPF 30 for effortless and comfortable daily protection.
4. If you do get caught out make sure you soothe sore, sunburned skin with a cooling, hydrating after sun to relieve any tightness and itchiness. Replenishing lost moisture will aid your skin’s natural repair process and make you more comfortable. Decléor Aroma Sun Expert Soothing After Sun Milk – Body treats sun–stressed skin to nourishing argan oil and repairing natural plant extracts.
