For those of you that don’t know, May is skin cancer awareness month so we would like to highlight the importance of wearing an SPF every day, all year round – no matter the weather!
Gone are the days where a facial sunscreen is thick, white and makes you look like Casper the ghost, there are fabulous creams out there that are light in texture, smooth and non greasy.
At the salon we have two fantastic brands, Elemis and Environ and we would honestly recommend both of their sun creams.
So which one do you choose?
Well, that is completely up to you and that depends on which brand you like and what suits your skin but here is a bit of information to help you decide.
Elemis Daily Defence Shield SPF 30
Usually £46, this month £41.40
This is a lightweight SPF 30 formula that protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays, environmental pollution and high energy visible light. It also has the added benefits of extra hydration as it contains coconut and jojoba oils. This sun cream will leave you skin nourished, soft and protected. It is the perfect base before your makeup.
Environ RAD Antioxidant Suncream
Usually £22, this month £19.80
This suncream contains sun filters and reflectors to provide SPF 15 protection. Although a lower SPF than the Elemis cream it is just as effective. Environ advise that we should be wearing lower factors but apply them more frequently (90 mins- 2hrs) when out in the sun for optimal protection.
It also has added vitamins C and E and antioxidants to provide healthy looking, youthful skin.
For the month of May we are giving you 10% off both of these products.
So what are you waiting for? Pop in the salon to get get yours!
