Higher is better
To give yourself the most protection from UVA radiation, always pick products that have a 5-star rating and try to choose creams and sprays with an SPF rating above 30.
Give it time
Sunscreen works best once the skin has absorbed it. So, apply generously and allow 20-30 minutes before you go out.
Find the shade
Remember to break up your time in the sun with moments in the shade. Find a shaded spot to spend a few minutes in.
Wearing the right clothes is a great way to protect your skin from UVA damage. This means hats, tshirts, and UV sunglasses. Pick up all the holiday essentials in our Specialbuys range.
