Sun Safety

Some of you will be readying yourselves for summer holidays abroad whilst a few will remain and dance to the sun deity Apollo every morning in the hope that the English summer will arrive at all.

Either way, it’s the time of year when we stock up on anti-histamines, insect repellent and SUN PROTECTION!

I’m not going to bore you with statistics about skin cancer - Of all those diagnosed with melanoma in England and Wales, about 86 out of every 100 people will live for at least 5 years. I personally don’t like those odds, I’d prefer to enjoy a long life with family and loved ones.

Here are a few tricks of the trade to protect your skin against everything from premature ageing to skin cancer.

Prevention is better than cure, make it part of your routine


Never leave to go outdoors without sun protection, even on an overcast day you will still be affected by UV rays. If the sun does make an appearance you’re covered, quite literally.

Clients who use SPF all year round are our most loyal, simply because they can see the difference in skin tone, texture and elasticity. 

Sun protection can be elegant and fun


Mineral make-up ranges like jane iredale offer you a SPF of 25 in most foundations. You have an option to contour, highlight and bronze till your heart's content, creating your own version of a summer goddess whilst remaining protected at the same time.

Turbo Boost from the inside out


Supplementation with skin specific beauty food vitamins are a sure fire way of boosting your skins super hero functions to protect you. A combination of Vitamin A to heal cell DNA together with a plethora of anti-oxidants to negate free radical activity provides much needed protection from the inside out. Add Vitamin C to this and what you have is a power combination that will also work towards preventing pigmentation and maintaining an even skin tone.

The Science of Serums
