The sun is shining,
the weather is sweet yeahhhhh…
Absolutely it is and the school summer holidays are finally upon us – if you are jetting off on holiday then you may well have been preparing for packing duties for weeks, stocking up on sale items and most importantly, items to protect you from the sun’s rays.
The last thing you want is to spend time on your holiday suffering with sunburn as it does put a dampener on what should be a fantastic time. So how can you ensure you are protected on holiday?
The hottest time of the day
Between the hours of 12pm and 3pm are usually the hottest of the day and sun cream top ups will be required during this period, along with shade… in fact, if you fancied an afternoon Siesta, this is the would be the perfect time!
It goes without saying this should be one of the first items on your holiday checklist! Higher factor sun creams will give a better level of UV protection and Factor 50 is recommended for children. Always try to choose a waterproof cream to ensure protection whilst children are splashing away in swimming pools or the sea. If you still need to stock up, then check out the giveaway below for your chance to win a Nivea Holiday Skincare pack!
Although it cannot fully protect you from exposure to the sun, seeking out a parasol by the pool will offer you shade and a cooler place to park your behind. Burnt scalps are painful and as your head is the first place the sun’s harmful rays will hit Sun hats are recommended – with many different styles available, you will always find one to complement your outfit.
