Burning is your skin's way of telling you to get out of the sun and can cause plenty of discomfort, but it's those sneaky UVA rays that cause real trouble. You can't feel them, but they're the primary cause of premature photo-ageing (wrinkles and pigmentation) and have been shown by studies to damage skin cells in the basal layer of your skin, contributing to the development of skin cancers.
A good quality sun cream will protect you from all of these problems - and they will still allow your skin to tan in a healthy, safe way. This doesn't mean layering skin in thick, heavy product. The latest innovations in SPF technology mean the new generations of SPF sunscreens are light, easily absorbed, can be worn in conjunction with your usual skincare routine and sit comfortably under or over make-up.
Choose the right sun cream for your skin and then apply one of our favourite fake tans to give you a healthy glow - the safe way! Trust us, your skin will thank you for it.
