It's About To Get HOT. Stay Safe With Us In The Sun This Weekend!
This weekend we’re set to see temperatures soar! Whether you’re heading out somewhere in your summer dress or soaking up the rays in your garden, it’s important to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the soaring sun..
Before you head out, take these important rituals on board for your summer sunbathing sessions. How quickly you burn depends on your colouring, if you’re blonde, red haired, or someone with light coloured skin, you probably burn quicker than others with dark hair, eyes and skin (you’re not alone). This is down to your melanin, melanin is a chemical that is within our skin that protects us from the sun, how much melanin you have determines how you colour. Sunburn can have several damaging effects, it’s painful, can cause blisters, cause premature aging, and potentially lead to skin cancer. So of course, let’s protect ourselves!
Save Your Skin From The Sun
Always use a sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher, lather yourself in it with a minimum of 15 – 20 minutes before you head out, and why not grab that bargain sun hat you picked up from Primark? Wilko are offering a fantastic Sun Spray Bundle of5 sun protectors at only £13.50!

Of course, let's not forget our lips! Mine can get super sore in the summer, so I protect them with an similar SPF lip balm. Superdrug sell a vast range, dependant on your lips needs theres one for you. I love the Solait SPF 30 at £2.99.

Drink up and stay hydrated, not only does drinking lots of water benefit your skin and overall health, it’s especially important when it’s hot out. When your body sweats you lose water that you need to function probably, have you ever felt dizzy or disorientated in the sun? The lack of water could be why. There’s lots of funky bottles out there to shop from, get one personal to you and drink up!
Enjoy the sun this weekend, why not let us know how you’re enjoying the sun this weekend?
