Advice and Tips
Sun Protection Tips - Lotions
Allow yourself 20 minutes of ‘me’ time
20 minutes is all you need. Heading to the beach? Smooth on some sunscreen 20 minutes before you arrive and you’ll be right as rain (fingers crossed the rain doesn’t follow you).
Don’t miss a spot!
Obviously your arms and legs are pretty hard to miss when applying that beautiful coconut scented protection, but your back, feet, face and neck sometimes get overlooked. Have a friend help when applying to harder sections like your back, and make sure when doing your face and neck you don’t forget behind the ears!
The golden rule
Follow this simple rule and you’ll never be mistaken for a lobster again. Re-apply your sunscreen to all areas of your body every 1-2 hours and after swimming, towel drying or excessive perspiration. It’s as easy as that.
Sun Protection Tips - Oils
20 minutes is all you need!
The best way for you to achieve that killer tan without turning bright red is to allow the oil some time to seep in. Give it 20 minutes and you’ll be good to go!
Avoid the stress, don’t make a mess!
Throw down a towel before you begin applying to stop it getting on things it shouldn’t.
Evenness is key
If you want an even tan, apply an even spread. Pour a small amount of oil into one palm and gently rub it into the other before using both hands to apply it to your body. Make sure all areas that are going to be touched by the sun have been oiled and don’t forget your back!
If you know your skin doesn’t break out easily and you don’t mind oiling up your face, then by all means go ahead making sure you always avoid your eyes. But for those of us without flawless skin, applying sunscreen to your face instead of an oil is highly recommended.
The golden rule
We all know how easily time flies by when you’re lying down at a beach, surrounded by a gorgeous coconut aroma and getting an all round spectacular tan… but don’t let it fly too fast! Re-apply some oil every 1-2 hours or after swimming to ensure you have protection from those UV rays, while getting a golden glow in the mean time.
Sun Protection Tips - General Tips
Between 11am and 3pm the sun is at its strongest so try and stay out of its way. But if you do decide to hit the beach (we can’t blame you) just remember to smooth on some sun protection so those UV rays won’t bite.
Even though it’s hot, it pays to cover up. Don’t be afraid to rock your latest sunhat and summer dress whenever you step outside. You’ll look the part and stay safe.
See clearly again with a decent pair of sunglasses. Make sure they offer UV protection to ensure your eyes aren’t damaged by those nasty rays
