Simple sun protection
When the sun comes out one day in the UK, there are a lot of red faces and bodies the following day. It seems we never learn. At a very sunny daytime party recently I left my Simple Sun Sensitive Protecting Suncare Lotion on a table. A few people did use it - but most, I noticed, didn't apply enough for it to be really effective!
You have to apply sunscreen generously – about two to three tablespoons of product for the entire body - and take care not to miss areas like the back of the knees and neck and your feet. Apply before going out into the sun and reapply hourly or after swimming. These products are water resistant for 40 minutes - that means while you are in the water. Drying off means you rub away the product and need to put some more on.
The Simple products I have been using are quickly absorbed so you don't get white patches on your skin and, important for someone like me who is rather sensitive to perfumes, they are fragrance-free and contain no nasty chemicals. The factor 15 version contains Green Tea while the factor 30 uses Sunflower "for natural defence". The lotions soften and smoothe the skin at the same time as protecting them and within the range there's a great Moisturising Aftersun Lotion containing aloe vera.
I particularly like the Facial Hydrolotion (a little goes a long way here) and the Lip Balm Stick - amazing how quickly lips dry out in the sun! And, of course, the wonderful thing about all Simple products is the fact that they are great for anyone with sensitive skin.
