Now first of all I just need to say sorry for the timing of this post, because looking outside the window sun cream was not the first thing I thought of! Horrible English weather! But apparently the weather will be improving, and it's always a good time to learn about protecting yourself and your family. So I'd like to start with some facts:
Skin cancer is almost always preventable, so by being vigilant and making sure you always wear protection you give yourself a very good chance of avoiding it.
I'm sure we all apply sun cream in our own way, (personally I always do my arms first), but Ultrasun have a few suggestions to make sure you get the most of your chosen form of protection; always apply to cool, clean & dry skin (ideally indoors or the shade) at least 15 minutes before you go outside! Also don't be too worried about slapping it on, the Association of of European Cosmetic Industry recommend 2mg/cm² which is about a teaspoon of cream for your face.
You should also;
Ultrasun create products to protect you from the sun. Their products are free from preservatives, emulsifiers and perfume, so even those with the most sensitive skin will be perfectly fine. They say that you'll only need to apply their products once for all-day protection, EVEN after you've been for a swim.
The Ultrasun range is available from QVC, John Lewis, Waitrose, Debenhams, and many others nationwide. Or you can order directly from there on

So tell me, how do you prefer to enjoy the sun?
Stay safe, x
