With temperatures hotting up, it is only natural to shed those winter layers and let our skin soak up the sun.
While this is great for topping up often depleted Vitamin D levels, those UV rays can easily damage the skin and lead to serious health conditions as well as causing liver spots and premature ageing.
At Pure Beauty we suggest you use sun protection products all year round, but as summer approaches this is more important than ever.
We totally adore the Dermalogica Solar Defence System range because it allows you to enjoy the sun but keeps your skin healthy and youthful at the same time. If you are looking for water-resistant, broad spectrum sun protection for the face and body, look no further than Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50. Used 15 minutes before you go outside, this sheer solar protection treatment defends against UV light and environmental damage. It has a lightweight formula that melts into the skin without feeling greasy and you can go about your day know your skin is protected and you look amazing.
For something a little different, we think you will be impressed with the Decleor BB Cream 24 Hour Hydration SPF15. This is a 24 hour, protective moisturiser with the benefits of a foundation that adds a flawless finish to all skin types. It is light and fresh and not only moisturises for 24 hours but also illuminates and evens out your complexion. Due to the research that goes into Decleor products, this product refines skin texture and corrects blemishes as well as offering that vital protection against UVA/UVB rays and pollution. From the first time you use it, your skin will feel fresh and hydrated and will look flawless and luminous from morning to night.
We are big fans of Elemis and are currently loving the Elemis Liquid Layer SPF30. This has to be the first port of call if you want to protect against sun damage and premature skin ageing. This silky lotion offers water-resistant SPF30 protection against UVA, UVB rays and pollution. It can be used every day and applied after your regular moisturiser and because it is smooth and non-greasy, you can still wear wake-up.
