Living in the southern hemisphere and being in the middle of a searing hot Summer we are exposure an over abundance of UV radiation. Never mind that some areas of the eastern states are currently being flooded, even on cloudy days, there is enough UV to cause many of us to burn if we stay outdoors for a period of time.
This is why being sun smart is a 365 day task, and not just during hot sunny day. I’ve made a habit to use at least an SPF on my face everyday, and when I’m in short sleeved clothing or skirts, my exposed skin is covered up in SPF 30+ products.
To help you too get into good habits, Dermalogica is sponsoring a giveaway to win a Daylight Defence kit that will ensure you are protected daily from top to toe.
1. Solar Defense Booster SPF 30+ -10 ml
This light non-greasy cream can be used on its own or you can mix it into your skincare or even foundation to increase the SPF factor of your favourite beauty product. The best thing is it is easily to mix into water or oil based products and it doesn’t leave any signs of the dreaded white cast on skin – definitely a favourite of mine in the kit.
2. Multivitamin Body block SPF 20
A cocktail of vitamins and moisturising ingredients, this lavender scented light body sunscreen not only protects you from the sun, it also boosts your skin’s moisture level to keep you hydrated and prevents sun related pre-mature aging. I never leave home without it for the past month.
3. Solar shield SPF 15 - 8g
A waxy stick that resembles a lip balm, it's great to use on areas that need water resistant protection like lips, or ears. With a light menthol taste it can give you protection in waters for up to 80 minutes so make sure to slip this into the beach bag the next time you head out.
4. After sun Repair - 38 ml
This is a cooling and soothing cucumber, lavender and algae extract infused gel lightly rehydrates skin without leaving any residues. It also helps too cool down skin and repair any sun over-exposure during the day.
