When you have a demanding daily schedule, the thought of a week or two spent reading a good book by the pool at a hilltop villa is nothing short of total bliss. Right? But before you get too carried away daydreaming about your upcoming break abroad, it’s important to remember that prolonged exposure to the sun’s intense UV rays can be damaging to your health. Even if there are no visible signs such as dark spots or wrinkles on the surface, it’s extremely important to protect your skin.
To help put your mind at ease next time you jet off, we’ll reveal how you can reduce the risk of getting sun damage with the help of a few essential beauty buys. They’ll slot seamlessly into your everyday holiday routine (and suitcase).
A lotion such as Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Cream UVB/UVA 30 not only offers high protection, but also hydrates your complexion while acting as an anti-ager. The smooth and silky product works well under make-up too, so remember to apply before going for lunch with your family at the local seafood restaurant.
Suitable for normal, dry, combination and oily skin, a generous layer of Clarins After Sun Moisturiser Ultra-Hydrating cream is another true beauty saviour after a day in the heat. This multifunctional product soothes, repairs and replenishes while extending your tan – it’ll help you stay bronzed after you’ve stepped off the plane too.
When you’re ready to call it a night and have scrubbed off the evening’s make-up, massage on a little Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil. This petite bottle contains a liquid made entirely from plant extracts. Why do we love it? It gives the wearer radiant skin that’s satin soft to the touch.
