Your summer holiday might have been cancelled but you can still smell like your favourite holiday cocktail! This ultra-fine mist from COOLA envelops the skin in a protective shield while antioxidants work hard to keep the skin healthy. This formula is infused with nourishing, hydrating ingredients such as Cucumber, Aloe Vera and Red Raspberry Seed Oil which maintain a strong complexion. Unlike other sunscreens, this one is easy to apply to those hard to reach places such as behind the knees, back and shoulders, plus this product won’t budge when exposed to water or sweat.
Heliocare 360° Colour Oil-Free Gel – shop
This skin-perfecting SPF from Heliocare is a go-to-sun protecting product for us. It uses a blend of natural and mineral UV filters, Biomimetic Melanin and antioxidants to effectively protect the skin against all types of radiation. It provides natural-looking, matte coverage to even out the skin tone, camouflaging blemishes and redness to create a more perfected and flawless-looking complexion.
SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF50 – shop
Formulated to correct and prevent sun damage, this multitasking sunscreen uses chemical and mineral UV filters alongside 2% Niacinamide and 1% Tranexamic Acid to transform the appearance of discolouration and dark spots. Niacinamide helps to brighten from the first application and helps to maintain a radiant complexion while Tranexamic Acid inhibits the production of melanin with the skin. Not only will your skin be thoroughly protected from UVA and UVB damage, but it will also look more even and healthier all year round.
