If you're anything like us then, chances are, your summer vacation is already planned. Now that the days are getting longer and warmer, we can hardly wait to slip on our swimsuits and sink our feet into the hot sand on some faraway island! And, if you're like us, then you never pack for a beachside getaway without a whole lot of sun protection!
The importance of sun protection
These days, protecting your skin from the sun is about more than avoiding the discomfort and embarrassment of sunburn- it's about preventing premature aging and maintaining the skin's natural beauty from the longterm effects of ultraviolet radiation.
An innovative approach
A lot of us associate sunscreen with the ultra- greasy, white-streak-leaving formulas of our childhood but, now more than ever, suncreen has become a pleasure to use thanks to the Sublime Sun range by L'Oréal Paris. From fluid lotions to lightweight mousses and even oils, all with a fresh fruity scent, you're sure to find the right sun protection for you!
Our favorite formulas
Sheer finish spray: This SPF 30 alcohol-free spray absorbs quickly into the skin with a matte texture and weightless feel. Simply spray it over any exposed areas of skin and let the product do its work!
Silky Sheer BB Cream: The skin on our face is more sensitive than the skin on our bodies, so this is one area where you want to top up often and possibly even opt for a higher SPF. We love the ultra-fluid tinted BB cream as it offers the perfect amount of coverage and protection all in one!
Invisible Protect Dry Oil: Ever wanted that gold-tinted beachy glow all the models seem to have? You can, with a dry oil! Spritz the product all over and then massage it in for a radiant finish.
After sun: Even with sunscreen, the sand, saltwater and sun can be tough on our skin. Post-beach, you should always take some time to soothe and replenish the skin with a nourishing after-sun lotion.
