Suncare Tips

Ready to embrace the sunshine safely?

  • Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 50.
  • Reapply every two hours, or more often if sweating or swimming.
  • Opt for clothing with UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) for enhanced defense.
  • Wear sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Use a wide-brimmed hat to shade your face, ears, and neck. Consider hats with UPF for added sun shielding.
  • Take breaks in shaded areas, especially during peak sunlight hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
  • Stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
  • Be aware that certain medications can increase sensitivity to sunlight. Consult with a healthcare professional if unsure.
  • Check the UV index before heading outdoors; plan activities when the sun’s intensity is lower.
  • Educate others about the importance of sun protection.
  • Encourage sun-smart habits among friends and family.

Knowledge is power when it comes to protecting your beautiful skin.

we get asked this all the time

  • High SPF Doesn't Mean Forever: SPF50 doesn't mean you're invincible all day. Reapplication is key, no matter the SPF level.
  • Chemical vs. Mineral: Chemical or mineral sunscreen? Ultimately, it's your choice but do you really want to put chemicals on your body? — Mineral sunscreens with zinc oxide are a healthier choice and it's also gentler for sensitive skin. Choose wisely!
  • Waterproof or Resistant? Truth bomb—no sunscreen is truly waterproof. They're water-resistant, so reapply after swimming or sweating for maximum effectiveness.
  • Layering with Confidence: Mixing sunscreen with makeup or moisturiser? Be cautious; layering might dilute its effectiveness. Go for standalone application for optimum protection. Better yet get a sunscreen with moisturising properties.
  • Sunscreen Isn't Everything: Hats, sunglasses, and seeking shade? They're your sunscreen's BFFs. Combine them for unbeatable sun safety!

Avoid These Common Sunscreen Mistakes!

being sun smart

Here are a few tips to sidestep common sunscreen slip-ups and ensure your skin stays radiant and shielded.
Skipping Application: Don't miss a spot! Apply sunscreen generously to all exposed areas, including often-forgotten spots like ears, lips, and the tops of feet.
Forgetting Reapplication: Remember, sunscreen doesn't last all day! Reapply every 2 hours, especially after swimming or sweating, to maintain that protective shield.
Underestimating Cloudy Days: UV rays play hide-and-seek with clouds. Don't be fooled—apply sunscreen even on overcast days for comprehensive protection.
Using Expired Products: Check the expiration date! Using expired sunscreen may reduce its effectiveness, so swap out old bottles for fresh ones.
Skimping on Quantity: More is better! Apply a sufficient amount of sunscreen for effective coverage. Don't be shy—be generous with your application.
Neglecting Other Protection:
Sunscreen is vital, but it's not the only shield! Pair it with sunglasses, hats, and seeking shade for comprehensive sun safety.
Ignoring Sensitive Areas: Delicate areas like the eyes and neck need protection too!
Stay informed and stay protected.

more is better!

don't know how much to apply?

Start small. Don't try to cover your whole body in one go. Start by applying about a teaspoon to your arm and rub into the area from your hand to your elbow, then elbow to shoulder. Apply to one small section of your body at a time and you'll be sun-ready in no time.

Use the right amount to cover yourself. As a general guide, use a teaspoon on each arm, leg, your face, neck and ears, and two teaspoons on the front of your chest and your back.

When it comes to sun protection, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Protecting yourself from the sun can be as unique as you are!

Whether you love stylish sun-protective clothing, have a knack for finding the perfect spot in the shade, or prefer to sport a trendy hat or umbrella, there are countless creative ways to shield yourself from the sun's rays.

By embracing sun protection in your own way, you're not only staying safe but also inspiring others to explore their sun safety options.
