Summer has arrived in the UK! We have been bathed in sunshine over the last few days but you still have to wear protection from the sun.
It is important to wear some SPF protection under your moisturizer or wear it on its own. It is always good to have some sun because of the added Vitamin D to the body but you shouldn’t bake in the sun as that will cause damage to your skin. Sunscreen protection offers us some protection to harmful UVB and UVA rays.
Sunscreens with a higher SPF should offer more protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. An SPF 15 sunscreen blocks 93 percent of UVB radiation, while an SPF 30 sunscreen blocks nearly 97 percent.
Two of the products I use on my face are Eucerin Sun Creme which is a SPF 30 and protects from UVB and UVA. I add to my moisturizer as it doesn’t have any SPF protection.
The second product is Ultrasun Professional Protection for Face. This is also SPF 3o and has both UVB and UVA protection. It is anti-ageing sun protector for very sensitive skin with anti-ageing properties.
For the body I use two products. Boots Soltan suncare lotion is a SPF 50 with UVA and UVB. My husband has pale skin so he uses this one. I also use Pin Buin Instant Glow Skin Illuminating Sun Spray. This is a double-action product as it gives a glow and a touch of shimmer to the body. Very good for us pale skin girls and it also gives SPF 30 UVB and UVA protection like the others. It is a not a self-tanning product though!
So don’t be a lobster, wear some sun protection!
