Keeping your Skin Safe and Happy in the Sun this Summer...
AUGUST - It's the Sunday of Summer, so make it count!
Thousands of people will be flying in and out of the UK this month on their holidays to soak up the sun and bask in the glorious heat. Even those who aren't venturing out of their postcode, need not bother, it's the UK, one day it's raining, the next it's hotter than Ibiza.
The sunshine is an amazing thing and we're from an era that loves to be bronzed. It makes you look healthier, happier and is vital evidence that you've had a fun summer - who wouldn't want a tan?
We're keen, here at The London Perfume Company, to get a tan, oh yes, but get one safely.
Firstly, don't ignore your HAIR in the hot sun. Read more in detail about how to protect your barnet here.
Now - back to your skin...
Here are FOUR ways to be safe in the sun:
1. Look after your LIPS.
Dry lips are NOT good, in fact they are very annoying. The sun dries them up so quickly, especially when you're in and out of water all the time. Keep your lips full of moisture with this Rodial balm designed especially for dehydrated lips. It prides itself on nourishing and restoring upset pouts. MWah!
2. Don't forget to pack for AFTER the sun...
It goes without saying that carrying sun cream is a MUST! Lots of people forget to pack the after sun in all the excitement of hope for a tan. Well, we're here to remind you - PACK THE AFTER SUN!
Spending long days at the beach is tough on your skin. On your way to the restaurant or just waiting around while the sun goes down, apply the after sun as soon as you can - your skin will thank you for it.
This Nikki Beach after sun is cheap, cheerful and effectively cools your skin after skin exposure so you won't peel and your tan will stick around for much longer!
3. Tanning Water is the new cream...
Tanning Water?! We hear you cry - Yes that's what we thought. It's not actual water, it's a magical formula of essential oils and extracts which help speed up the tanning process. This Collistar 400ml bottle of excellent also protects you from harmful UV rays and we love it because of the handy spray nozzle. A definite MUST-HAVE!
4. Don't Sunbed Prep - Clear Gel Prep!
WELL - We hear a lot of "omg need to get on a sun bed before holiday" and "aghh i'm so pale i need to get my skin used to the sun, let's sun bed". NOOOO! UV Rays are so harmful and too many can not only be bad for your health but they can make your skin so dry, aging and wrinkly (boo hiss!).
So, in preparation for your beach-ready self, let yourself find Rodial Brazilian Tan gel. Trust us when we say, it is AMAZING. It's already selling so fast and we're not surprised at this price.
This fabulous self-tan from Rodial contains a clear gel formula which is designed to slowly build up a subtle sun-kissed tan without any streaks or patches. The exceptionally light texture is instantly absorbed and the addition of pomegranate ellagic tannins helps to tone and refine the skin.
