Summer is just beginning. It's the middle of July and the weather has been completely scorching hot on most days the last few weeks. That is not typical British weather which is quite a shock to the system as a born and bred Brit. Yeah it's been pretty miserable again the last few days but I'm hoping the sun will eventually grace the UK again.
Anyway, speaking of Summer, what is the most important thing to maintain and use during those hot and sweaty days? Not a tan, no, but a good sunscreen should always be in your presence. It is an extremely important task to complete. I'm sure the majority of you lovely ladies or gents love to get a tan naturally and skip the sunscreen but those actions have consequences.
I'm not going to give you a lecture or tell you what to do and I'm not trying to scare you at all. I couldn't do that but I feel the need to share the importance of using a good sunscreen, especially with the sunny days ahead of us.
I'm sure you're all aware of Skin Cancer. It is completely unseen and there are zero signs of it on the skin. If Melanoma is diagnosed earlier enough then 90% of cases can be treated effectively.
La Roche-Posay has created this fantastic but super cute video to help encourage you and your family or friends to check your moles when you spot them. Checking those moles could possibly save your life.
I'm sure you will see the importance of what a high SPF sunscreen can really do. In fact La Roche-Posay has a great range of sunscreen products for different skin types from oily to combo and normal skin. I have combination skin and so the Anthelios range was ideal for me. I have the Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid which has a factor of 50 which is extremely high. It provides high broad spectrum protection against the harmful UVA and UVB rays.
La Roche-Posay have also for a sunscreen which is specially formulated for babies and children named Anthelios Dermo-Kids. It contains optimal UVA and UVB protection and is suitable for the delicate skin of babies. It contains a well known ingredient, Shea butter which is very nourishing and so will moisturise the skin as well as protect.
There is nothing more important for me during the summer than protecting mine and my families skin.
