Beach beauty on the go

There’s nothing better than spending a relaxing day on the beach, but as we all know, a day under the Australian sun can cause serious damage to unprotected skin.

Did you know that in order for sunscreen to be most effective you need to apply sunscreen at least 10-20 minutes before going outdoors so the sunscreen can form a proper protective layer on your skin?

For ease of application, you could try the Suncare Moisturising Sun Spray SPF 50+ which features a convenient, easy to apply spray nozzle. The Suncare Moisturising Sun Spray SPF 50+ is an ultra light sun lotion which offers very high level UVA/UVB sun protection in a handy format, ideal for use on-the-go.  Dermatologically tested, the spray is suitable for all skin types and being 4 hours water resistant, it is perfect for use by the whole family. Remember always follow the instructions on the packaging and to reapply every two hours, and more often if you’ve been sweating or have been in the water.

The slip, slop, slap message is iconic in Australia since its introduction in the 1980s and is more relevant than ever today. These days it’s all about slip (on some sun-protective clothing), slop (on a broad spectrum, water-resistant SPF 50 sunscreen), slap (on a hat), seek (shade from the sun) and slide (on some sunglasses). Making sure you apply these easy to follow directions will help you to truly enjoy your moment in the sun and the great Australian outdoors.
