Stay safe in the sun this summer with Ultrasun
Ultrasun prides itself on delivering “the most effective and the most efficient sun protection you can buy”.
The Upcoming will try just about anything to ensure the slowest ageing process possible. We’ve said many times before that prevention is better than cure, so sun protection is always top of our beauty shopping list. Applying sun protection to the face each day is the single most effective investment you can make into your complexion’s future.
So here’s the science bit: UVA rays are produced by the sun (and sun beds), and they cause premature skin ageing and produce a short-lived tan. UVB rays are produced by the sun (not sun beds), and they cause the skin to burn and produce a longer lasting tan. Ultrasun’s range offers protection from both these rays while providing a long-lasting, golden glow.
Ultrasun Face 30, £20
Sun protection no longer has to mean a shiny, greasy face. Ultrasun Face 30 acts as a make-up primer, light moisturiser and contains powerful anti-ageing skincare ingredients. All products in the Ultrasun range are oil, emulsifier and perfume free, water resistant and non-greasy, making them suitable for even the most sensitive or oily skin types. We wouldn’t be without this product and confess to using it every day, home or abroad. We love how effortlessly our foundation glides on post-Ultrasun application, and we are convinced it increases the staying power of our make-up.
Ultrasun Sports 30 Spray, £26
Perfect for those hard-to-reach areas with its quick and easy application – the nozzle continues to spray even when upside down!
Its clear, non-greasy formula is perfect for application around or over the hair, preventing colour change and parting burns. No mess, no nonsense, what more could you ask for?
Ultrasun Ultra Sensitive 50+, £20
This is a must-have for busy mums and English roses alike. If you have fair skin prone to burning, then Ultrasun Ultra Sensitive 50+ is your saviour, performing in even the most extreme of sun conditions, keeping you sun-safe. We were so impressed with the speed of absorption of this cream. It leaves no residue on the skin.
The entire range of Ultrasun products offers all-day-long protection with only one application. Providing you follow the simple product instructions, you needn’t worry about burning.
Ultrasun Ultralip 15, £6
This product softens and moisturises the lips with blackcurrant seed oil, whilst preventing and reducing inflammation or chapping
Caring for your skin doesn’t just stop with the application of a fantastic sun protection cream. Following our hints and tips will ensure you return from your holiday with a healthy glow and stay looking youthful for many years to come.
Avoid the sun between the hours of 11am and 3pm, as this is when the sun is highest in the sky, with the rays at their most powerful. Let this be a time for a siesta or a spot of light reading.
You can still burn in the shade, so apply your sun protection at least 20 minutes before heading off to the beach.
Wear a wide-brimmed hat. Not only will this protect your hair from damage, but also it will protect your parting, an area easily burnt as we forget to apply cream to this tiny patch of exposed skin.
Now we are sun ready, so let’s cross our fingers for a glorious summer.
