Whether you are on a sun lounger or your little one is running around the school playground, staying safe in the sun is all about thinking ‘top to toe’ come rain or shine. Research from Boots UK shows that us Brits know our facts when it comes to UV – two thirds of us are aware that UV rays can penetrate on cloudy days, but just as many of us do not use an SPF on a daily basis so we need to put our knowledge into action!
Whatever your plans are this summer, Boots UK has options for everyone so you can stay sun safe from head to foot.
Clare O’Connor, Boots UK Sun Care Expert, comments, “Technology advances mean that sun protection can now fit around how you like to enjoy the summer. Innovations like sand and water resistant technologies, as well as fast drying products, mean that top-to-toe protection from the sun is even easier, no matter what you are doing!”
Make sure you are protecting your skin from UV rays, even first thing in the morning and when driving to work as UV rays can penetrate glass. With the added protective power of SPF15 and 5 star UVA technology, the multitasking No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream helps protect the skin from the effects of the sun. The oh-so-simple addition to your skincare regime will not only help to keep your skin protected, but will effortlessly moisturise dry areas. No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Normal / Dry Skin 50ml, £12.50
The No7 Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation has a unique superlight texture which feels weightless and silky soft, gliding seamlessly over skin for a fresh, natural finish. Fragrance free and with SPF15 you do not need to compromise on UVA protection. No7 Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation 30ml, £14.50
Clare O’Connor, comments, “We are exposed to UVA rays all year round – even when it is cloudy. This means that every day – come rain or shine – your skin is exposed to both UVA and UVB, causing up to 80% of your skins visible ageing. Including UV protection in your daily skincare and makeup routine is an easy way to ensure your face is protected, from your daily commute to a trip to the shops. Remember to protect the delicate skin on your scalp too by slipping on a hat”
