Caring for your Skin

If you’re jet setting away to a sunny location or simply expecting a bright summer, it’s important to make sure that you take the steps required to look after your skin. As the 5th most common cancer here in the UK, malignant melanoma is always a threat to those who don’t take care and protect their skin from the sun.

While it’s not bad to take in a bit of sun, high levels of it can place you at a higher risk, emphasising the need to invest in preventative measures. Here at the Beauty Store we’re always happy to help our customers protect their skin, not only by providing the products they need but advice too. Here are just some of the ways to protect your skin in the sun.

Sun Tan Lotion

Without sun tan lotion in your bag, you’ll be at risk of sunburn and the consequences associated. It’s highly recommended that you use a lotion with at least SPF 15, although anything higher is much better for your skin. Not many people know that you are able to tan while wearing protection, although it won’t be as effective, but it will keep your skin safe.

After Sun

A misconception regarding after sun lotion is that it is only used to soothe sunburn. While it does help with this, it’s also great to nourish the skin after sun exposure, which helps to prolong your tan by keeping the area hydrated, which increases absorption. Additionally, after sun can help prevent peeling of the skin and make it look smoother and fresher.

Fake It

Whether you want to give your tan a kick start or simply fake it to avoid the skin damage, fake tan products is the perfect way to go. Apply it before you are due to go on holiday and allow your natural tan to slowly build over your sun protector for a lasting glow, remembering to exfoliate the skin and moisturise before application.

Our selection of false sun tanning products gives you a variety of options to choose and we also have the biggest names. From mousses to sprays, gels to lotions you’ll find something ideal for your skin. We also have a number of wash-off instant tans that you can use anytime without the hassle of preparation.

Hopefully with our guide, you’ll be able to enjoy your holiday and the summer while looking and feeling great in your own skin. If you have any questions about the products we offer, don’t hesitate to ask us.
