This amazing weather the last few weeks has got me in the holiday mode! One thing which I have found difficult is being able to walk into a pharmacy and purchase a good sun screen which is cruelty free. Suncare is so important. Even though we are in England our skin can still be damaged by the sun, especially in this glorious weather! Whether you are travelling abroad or partying at a festival I want to share my favourite sun care products which are of course animal friendly.
NYR – Chamomile And Aloe Vera Spf 25 Sun Lotion -
NYR are very friendly towards your skin. The organic ingredients mean that you are treating your body with goodness while being protected, you will also smell an absolute treat.
Murad – Water Resistant Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Spf 30 -
If you are into your sports or like to take a dip in the sea this has a waterproof formula which will stay on if you get wet or sweat.
Melvita – High Protection Sunscreen Spf 50 -
Melvita is a great organic skin care brand which has a lovely range of products with SPF. The High protection sunscreen can be used all over the body or on the face. If your everyday skin base doesn’t contain any sun protection then use this underneath as a moisturiser.
Trish McEvoy – Beauty Balm Instant Solutions Spf 35 -
This is my favourite BB cream which has a high SPF. If you like to wear a light base throughout the day then this is for you. It gives the skin a gorgeous glow but covering any unwanted redness. It’s pretty pricey, but, a little goes a long way!
Liz Earle – After Sun Gel -
After a long day outside in the sunshine this will cool your body down and soothe any redness or highly exposed areas. The smell of lavender and aloe Vera is divine.
Bare Minerals – Natural Sunscreen Spf 30 -
This is a very clever sun care product. If your skin is oily and you suffer from shine then this product doesn’t give you that greasy finish which a lot of sun creams do. It has some colour which you can match to your skin tone or bronze yourself up. It has an easy-to-use brush which allows you to buff the product evenly onto the skin.
