How to keep your skin protected in the sun

gorgeous_shopHoliday season is fast approaching, so make sure you’re prepped & packed with everything you need to keep your skin protected in the sun.

Free from oils, emulsifiers and perfume, Ultrasun is perfect to use on all skin types, especially if your skin is particularly sensitive or you’re looking for a child-friendly sun protection.

Prep with…Ultrasun Pre-Sun Tan Optimiser
The Pre-Tan Optimiser is a non-greasy face & body lotion that accelerates & prolongs the tanning process. By stimulating your melanin production, the pre-sun lotion prepares your skin for sun exposure resulting in a long lasting, more even tan. For best results, use at least 2 weeks before your holiday.

Protect with…Ultrasun Sports SPF 20, Family SPF 30, Face SPF 30-50, Glimmer SPF 20 or Extreme SPF 50
With 5 ranges of sun protection, you’ll find the right SPF for you! Ultrasun sun protection has a non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula that can be applied just once a day – Although be sure to choose the right SPF for your skin.

*Top Tip* Ultrasun sun protection lasts two years after opening, so stock up on the large 400ml family sizes for extra added value!

Prolong with…Ultrasun Aftersun
Don’t let aftersun be an afterthought! Ultrasun’s Aftersun provides a cooling, moisturising effect on the skin for up to 24 hours, which helps to prolong your tan after sun exposure.

Ultrasun products range from 100ml to 400ml sizes, so you can keep one at home and one with you on-the-go!

Follow our sun safety tips to keep skin protected this summer…

Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen
SPF 30 or higher

Timing’s everything!
Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure

Apply liberally!
Apply 1 tablespoon of sunscreen to your face & each part of your body.

Protect your skin, everyday!
Up to 80%* of the sun’s UV rays can penetrate through light clouds, so make sure you’re using an SPF, even if it’s cloudy.

Protect your peepers!
UV rays can damage the surface of our eyes just as much as our skin. Make sure you’re wearing high quality UV protective sunglasses

Lastly, remember to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration
