We are used to hearing about the dangers of sun exposure and the need to protect. While this is true all year round it is especially important in the summer or when we are on holiday as the sun may be stronger than we are used to.
Living in Britain we are so un-used to seeing the sun that when it does makes an appearance it can be so easy to get caught up in the rush to enjoy it before it goes, that we forget the all important sun cream.
Getting sun burnt at the beginning of a holiday or the summer is no fun, not only is it bad for you, it’s painful and instead of sporting a healthy glow we end up looking like a lizard mid sink shed … yuk.
So whether your enjoying summer here or somewhere even hotter it’s important to stay well protected. Remember we need protection from both UVA and UVB, A is for aging B is for burning.
Here are our top picks to get you through the summer enjoyably.
The skin on our face is delicate, even if we don’t burn unprotected exposure to sun can cause damage, sun spots and wrinkles. However some sun creams, especially the higher factor ones, can also cause a breakout, which again is the last thing we want.
Well Clinique have the answer.
Clinique City Block or Clinique Super City Block is available in two factors, 25 and 40. Its light and oil free consistency is non greasy and won’t clog your skin meaning less break outs. The light tint means it can be worn on its own or under makeup and the two factors gives you flexibility whether your after everyday protection or something a little stronger.
Both are available from Debenhams so don’t forget to use your beauty card and collect point as well.
