As the days are getting hotter, we need to protect our skin from multiple things such as the sun and insects. Even on overcast days, our skin can still be damaged by the sun.
It is so important, especially for us girls, to make sure that our foundation contains sunscreen. Always look at the bottom of the bottle to see the products SPF value before purchasing!
By including an SPF foundation into our makeup routines can ensure that our face is always protected from the sun. Without this, sun damage can cause many problems such as cancer, early signs of ageing, and burning.
Of course, whilst we are in the middle of a heatwave, it is vital that we invest in a good sunscreen. There are so many sunscreen brands out there that all claim to do the same thing. It’s not as simple as looking at the SPF factor nowadays. We now need to protect ourselves from both UVB and UVA rays.
According to recent research, the recommended sunscreens contain at least one of the following:
- titanium dioxide
- zinc oxide
Water-resistant sunscreen is also recommended when going to the beach or on holiday as it will protect your skin whilst you’re in the water.
Delph Sun Care
Delph offers a range of high-quality products. SPF 15, SPF 30 and SPF 50 are all available in 150ml tubes with superior UVA and UVB protection. Delph is based on the original Lemon Delph fragrance blended with a highly developed laboratory formulation, giving full protection at the required sunscreen level and great water resistance properties.
Delph range includes After Sun which moisturises and soothes the skin after exposure to the sun. The gentle rehydrating formula with added moisturisers and vitamin E helps prevent peeling and prolongs the life of your tan, reducing the ageing effects of the sun.
Another factor that is important especially during the warmer periods is the protection against insect bites. Insect bites can itch and cause swelling when not treated properly.
There are many brands that target insect bites, there are after bite pens, lotions, and sprays. Each one targets the relief in itching. Although the symptoms only last for a few hours or days, they can be extremely uncomfortable and somewhat painful.
There is a brand called Bite Away that uses a different technique to target insect bites. Bite Away is an electronic device for the treatment of bites and stings from insects such as mosquitoes, wasps, bees, hornets and horseflies.
Bite Away is a chemical-free gadget that works solely by concentrated heat and is therefore also suitable for pregnant women, children* as well as for people suffering from allergies.
The ceramic contact surface of bite away® is placed on the bite or sting. After pressing one of the two buttons just once, a temperature of around 51°C is reached and maintained for the selected time. This product reduces the effects of insect bites almost instantly for a good couple of hours and the heat should not be something to be put off by!
BITE AWAY PEN RRP £26.99
