Are there any other ways I can protect myself from the sun?
As well as wearing a good quality sunscreen, we recommend wearing light clothing that can help to protect vulnerable areas from the fun.
For example, you should wear a hat to protect the sensitive skin on your scalp, which can be very difficult to protect with sun creams or sprays, and a pair of sunglasses can help to protect the delicate skin around your eyes.
The sun is always at its strongest between 11 am and 3 pm, so if you can find some shade during those hours, your skin will thank you for it.
Can after sun prolong your tan?
One of the main things that can prolong your holiday glow is moisturising.
When your body sheds dead skin cells, your tan will gradually fade.
You’ll want to keep applying your after sun even when you’ve arrived home to give your sun-parched skin that much-needed hydration.
Do your lips need sun protection?
Just like the rest of your body, your lips are susceptible to sun damage, meaning they’re at risk of skin cancer if not protected, too.
Using a lip balm with an SPF of at least 30 will filter out those harmful UV rays, in addition to protecting you against sun damage.
How long does sun cream last?
Sunscreen usually lasts for at least 3 years before it goes bad, and after this time, it becomes less effective at blocking UV rays, increasing your chances of getting sunburn or skin cancer.
However, if your bottle is less than 3 years old but it’s been left in a hot car for a couple of months, it probably won’t be very effective, either.
What is the best way to treat sunburn?
If you have sunburn, it’s important to avoid the sun as much as possible and stay cool indoors.
Cool your skin by taking frequent cold baths and showers; you’ll want to apply a generous amount of lotion (a product that contains soothing aloe vera is a good choice) to your sunburn to hydrate your damaged skin and relieve the pain.
You’re more likely to be dehydrated when you have sunburn, so it’s important to drink plenty of water to help your skin to heal.
