Fun in the Sun Summer Essentials
Hello lovelies!! Are we enjoying this sunshine or what?!! For those of you that don’t have the pleasure of living in the UK, we don’t really get much of a summer. These past couple of weeks has been gloriously hot and super sunny! As wonderful as stripping off and basking in the sun all day is, alot of us are forgetting to apply sun protection. I can’t stress enough the importance of wearing an SPF, even 30 minutes in the midday sun can give you sunburn. The suns rays are at its strongest from 12pm-3pm so during this time if you are out and about, you should be wearing a hat to protect your head and have plenty of sun protection on exposed skin.
When looking for a sunscreen make sure it has both UVA and UVB protection or what is also known as broad spectrum, as this will insure you are protected against both levels of the suns rays. UVA penetrates the lower levels of the skin, while UVB penetrates the top layers of the skin, the main culprit of sunburn.
Here are a few sun care products I have been using- for my face I have been loving, actually adoring Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 30, this smells of being at the beach! It’s got great coverage, loads of skincare benefits and feels light and fresh on the skin.
For my body I’ve been using Garnier SPF 30 Light & Silky, a light non sticky formula that’s high in protection and easy peasy to apply!
another great find is the BareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen UVA/UVB Protection, this is perfect for those who don’t like sticky suncream or have very sensitive skin. This is great for joggers because its a powder and it wont make you sticky or uncomfortable, you won’t even know its there. Its great to have in your hand bag for one of those days you’re out to lunch and didn’t anticipate any sun action, whip this out and your protected from head to toe! This is meant for face and body, its free of chemical sunscreen and best of all will not clog your pores!
