Skin care in summer

Summer’s a wonderful time of the year, but it can also be a time of raging sun, sweating and mosquitoes.

Summer’s a wonderful time of the year, but it can also be a time of raging sun, sweating and mosquitoes. The rays of the summer sun hit the earth at their steepest angle, producing the worst sunburn of the year.

The bronzed, sun-baked tan that used to be the essential summer fashion accessory is fading in favour of a spray-on tan or a natural look. But skin care in summer care goes beyond a factor 30+ sunblock.

Stay indoors or in the shade between 10am and 4pm. Play outdoor sports early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Wear sunblock every day, rain or shine. Combine it with long sleeves.

And use plenty of moisturiser if you swim a lot.
