Sun Favourites in the #BeautySpotlight
This week we’re putting our favourite sun protectors and self tanners in the #BeautySpotlight.
It’s important to stay safe in the sun as UV radiation is one of the main factors that causes the skin to age. Melanocytes—melanin-producing cells—begin to burn out when you reach your late thirties and forties, making it more difficult for your skin to fight sun damage. Everyday living also exposes your skin to a variety of pollutants and free radicals that can cause wrinkles, bumps, irritation and inflammation. Therefore, it’s important to use products with SPF that protect the skin to keep it looking younger and healthier for longer.
Self Tan is the safest and easiest way to achieve a sun-kissed golden glow. Our range of self tan sprays, mousses and lotions in a variety of formulas and finishes will leave you bronzed and streak free.
To help you with your choices, our Beauty Club Team give you a rundown of their faves:
Sarah Sian, Beauty Editor – ‘Stay sun-safe with Philosophy’s Shelter, a must-have sunscreen that fits in your handbag and is at hand when you’re on-the-go. Packed full of powerful ingredients it safeguards skin from the sun’s harmful rays and protects it from premature ageing. I also love the lightweight, non-greasy texture. It also delivers a flattering tinted matte finish to your overall complexion’.
Beryl Stewart, Distribution Manager Beauty – ‘I’m fair skinned and the Vita Liberata pHenomenal is my all time favourite self tan. It very easy to apply with a tanning mit and gives a very natural looking tan . You can apply quickly and be ready to go in a few minutes. Oh and no nasty smells. Best of all it is the longest lasting product I have tried and so there’s no need to constantly re-apply’.
Siobhan McGeowan, Assistant Merchandiser Cosmetics - ‘I swear by St Tropez’s Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. It’s streak free and doesn’t have that biscuit-y smell you often find with fake tans. I really put it to the test on a recent trip to Glastonbury; despite the rain and mud, my tan didn’t budge and I felt confident in my golden glow! I always apply with the tan application mitt for even coverage’.
Charmaine Awuku, Junior Mechandiser Health & Beauty – ‘I take Lancaster’s Tan Maximizer for the Face & Body on every holiday. It has intensive moisturising properties and really hydrates my skin after a day baking in the sun. It smells amazing too and makes my tan last ages. It’s even good enough to use as a moisturiser after the summer.’
