PROTECTING your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is so important in summer but it can be a pain constantly applying an SPF. However, some sun creams can make the awkward process a whole lot better. Take Rituals Sun Protection Express Mist for example: It comes in an aerosol spray which distributes the product evenly when you use it without getting your hands dirty. And it really works! It easily covers your body with a quick spray and no need to rub in the residue as it soaks into skin in nano-seconds. Just take extra care when using it in the wind as it may blow away from of the product. It covers the hard-to-reach places too. Highly recommended. It’s £16 and you can buy it here.
Banana Boat’s Powder-Dri Super Light Dry Lotion may say it’s for kids, but it’s perfect for anyone who don’t want sand to stick to their skin while sunbathing. Catching rays on the beach is a blast, but looking like a sand monster after applying your lotion is a drag. We can’t be the only ones that no matter what we do, it’s a task to look glam and effortless while your towel is blowing away and your book is getting buried whenever a breeze blows by. Worry no longer as this product dries to a matte finish, meaning sand just slides off. And YES, we’ve tried it and it works. We first discovered it when in Australia, and haven’t stopped buying it since. It’s on offer at Boots at the moment too for just over a fiver! BARGAIN. Buy it here.
Piz Buin is one of our favourite beauty brands and their Tan & Protect Tan Intensifying Sun Lotion is brilliant as it boosts your colour while protecting your skin. This product protects from harmful UVA/UVB rays, but it also contains Melitane which increases production of the skin’s natural tanning pigment by 70%. It accelerates the speed of the natural tanning process. Anything that helps us get a more enviable tan without damaging our skin is fine by us. It’s usually about £17 but it’s on offer at Boots for under £9. Buy it here.
