SPF sun safety beauty tips

Everyone’s talking about…SPF sun safety beauty tips

Is the sunshine ageing you? Sun safety is vital for your skin, so try these five sun-proof beauty tips.

Mask frazzled ends

Take extra care of the ends of your hair, as they are most vulnerable to sun damage.

Head & Shoulders creative beauty director Peter Lux says, “Use a deep conditioning mask at least every third time you wash your hair and really focus on the ends.” We love Pantene 1-Minute Wonder Ampules, which are dinky enough to fit in your carry-on.

Top tip: Always comb your hair through after applying a hair mask as the teeth of the comb gliding down the hair shaft smooths the cuticles for extra shine.

Give your skin a detox

The best thing you can do for your skin is to use skincare products with broad-spectrum sun protection factor, to prevent skin discolouration and unwanted freckles. But crank up your cleansing regime to avoid breakouts.

“To rid skin of chlorine residue, apply your cleanser and remove with a warm wash cloth, paying particular attention to the corners of nostrils and over the lips,” suggests Olay facialist Anastasia Achilleos.

Go for glow

When the temperatures rise, a good SPF is a no brainer. But top that with a glow-perfecting moisturiser and BB cream.

In summer less is more, so swap your usual foundation for Olay Essentials Complete Care Everyday Sunshine Moisturising Cream SPF15 with a hint of self-tanner. Then even-out your skin tone by applying Olay Essentials BB Cream on top. Perfect for this summer’s bare-faced chic look.

Maintain moisture

“Due to the warm weather it’s important to use a shampoo and conditioner that not only adds moisture to your hair but also your scalp. Plus, protect your hair from getting too much sun exposure by changing the parting on a daily basis,” says Peter Lux. Try Head & Shoulders Apple Fresh shampoo and conditioner.

Take care of your hands

Sun damaged hands are one of the biggest age giveaways. Don’t worry – just remember to oil up.

Almond oil applied to your hands throughout the day, particularly around the cuticle area, can work wonders. If your skin is really dry, gently warm some almond oil and petroleum jelly together. Slather over your hands and wrap up in cotton gloves – leave them overnight and they’ll be rejuvenated by morning.

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
