Protect the skin you're in!

I have had to become slightly more outdoorsy with the closure of my gym. I am less inclined, as a result, to venture out without SPF - although the weather has been a bit erratic, the UVA rays are always there. I have also included some pharmacy favourites to help keep the whole family protected as, according to the forecast, we are due sun!


Dermalogica Invisible Physical Defence SPF 30 (€59) is blendable and invisible on all skin tones, which is superb. Say goodbye to the thick, white residue that physical sunscreens leave behind! This product is a weightless sunscreen that helps defend against UVA/UVB and blue light and soothes all skin types, including sensitive skin. It contains ultra-sheer zinc oxide for broad-spectrum/blue light protection. The science bit is the bioactive mushroom complex, which helps soothe skin and reduce UV-induced redness and dryness.

The important antioxidant green tea helps to fight free-radical skin damage. The product is certified cruelty-free, gluten-free and vegan to fit more lifestyles and is going to be a staple for me for summer.

Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Fluid Mattifying (€18.50) is an everyday sunscreen that protects and mattifies sensitive and oily skin. Unperfumed and with an ultra-light, non-greasy texture, it does not leave an oily shine on the skin and is a great base for makeup.

Eucerin Photoaging Control Sun Fluid (€23) is an everyday facial sunscreen for all skin types. The anti-age sunscreen also includes glycyrrhetinic acid which supports skin's own DNA repair mechanism. The formula is further enriched with short and long-chained hyaluronic acid and visibly reduces wrinkles on the face and décolleté. Both Eucerin products here are available in SPF30 or SPF50+.


For the body, one of the best products is the P20 Continuous Spray (€25.50). It’s easily absorbed and great for if you’re headed out for a walk or to the garden. It goes on invisible, so you must wait a minute or two to get dressed. The P20 unique formula is non-greasy, non-oily and fragrance-free to provide the ultimate coverage for up to ten hours a day!

It is a transparent gel that is easy to apply and ensures an even coverage. A little goes a long way, making P20 more economical than other suncare products that need to be re-applied regularly during the day. It is also absorbed rapidly without any use of colourants.

The experts at P20 advise adults and children alike to protect their skin all year round. Using P20 gives you the peace of mind that you are protected in all weather conditions so you can enjoy your leisure time, especially those who enjoy having a tan as well as those with skin sensitive to sun exposure.
