Whether you’re staying at home or travelling far away this Summer, protecting your skin is paramount. Here is our quick 3 step guide to happier skin.
Think quality and quantity when it comes to sunscreen- it’s probably one of the most important investments in your holiday as you’ll be wearing it every day!
You should apply sun cream 15-30 minutes before going in the sun and apply it to all areas that are going to be exposed to the sun – don’t forget delicate areas such as ears, hands & feet! It is still very possible to burn in water or through clouds so be sure to take extra care and ensure to reapply after you’ve been for a dip.
2. Cover Up
It’s not just about sunscreen. Protect your skin with clothing, including a hat, T shirt and UV protective sunglasses (if your glasses aren’t UV protective, you’re only wearing tinted plastic!). From 11am to 3pm try to stay out of direct sunlight as it is at this time that the rays are at their strongest and most damaging to the skin. Don’t forget to give yourself a break from the sun every 15 – 30 minutes to prevent unnecessary damage.
Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and keep a bottle handy but do try to avoid alcohol as it speeds up dehydration.
Don’t forget to look after your skin also. Gently exfoliate (try our strawberry scented Exfoliating Body Wash) to remove dry, dead skin and keep your skin hydrated with moisturiser packed with nutrients. Our Overnight Ageless Tanning Balm contains subtle tanning agents which work with a blend of Jojoba Protein, Almond Oil and Hyaluronic Acid, boosting the skin’s moisture levels and leaving you with a natural glow, perfect for building colour during your holiday.
