For when the sun does come out
It may seem a distant dream, but summer is on its way and most of us are aware we need to protect our skin against the damaging effects of the sun. However, in the UK we’re exposed to a wide range of skin aggressors such as UV radiation, environmental pollutants, air-conditioning, car exhausts, tobacco smoke, moisture loss and wind burn which very few products help protect against all at once.
Award-winning Invisible Zinc Face & Body Sunscreen SPF 30+ 150g £26, or 75g £18.50 is a lightweight natural sunscreen that contains zinc oxide, a natural, physical sunscreen agent that sits on your skin and reflects dangerous UVA and UVB rays.
Perfect for an everyday protective body moisturiser, with zinc oxide which is a natural mineral ingredient that has natural healing and anti-bacterial properties, making it suitable for use on all skin types including super sensitive skin. Zinc’s properties are efficient enough to combat even the harshest climatic conditions – Sir Edmund Hillary wore zinc oxide when he climbed Everest.
Old generation sunscreens that use nanoparticles are absorbed into the skin, meaning the chemical reaction of sun protection happens in the skin. Invisible Zinc’s micronised particles cover the surface of the skin, providing protection by reflecting away UVA rays. By reflecting the light, the micronised particles also diminish the look of fine lines while offering a smooth texture. So when the sun does finally reach our shores, we’ll be ready.
