Get sun smart with Saltee
July 5, 2020
With summertime in full swing it’s now more than ever that we need to look after our skin. There’s nothing better than a healthy glow, beaming sun-kissed skin and a good dose of Vitamin D during the warm summer months.
We’ve teamed up with British suncare brand Saltee to discover the best ways to keep your skin protected in the sun so you can focus on enjoying your getaway.
Understanding UV rays
UV irradiation in the form of UVA is associated with skin ageing. UVA affects the elastin in the skin and leads to wrinkles and sun-induced skin ageing as well as skin cancer. UVA can penetrate window glass and penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB.
UVB is the form of UV irradiation most responsible for sunburn and has strong links to different types of skin cancer. A sunscreen with a high SPF will help block UVB rays and prevent the skin from burning, and by extension damage that can cause skin cancer.
All Saltee products provide broad spectrum ultra-protection against UVA and UVB rays for optimum protection when you’re out enjoying the sun.
Know your SPF
This can be confusing, so let us help clear it up! SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays.
It is important to note that a sunscreen SPF rating is only indicative of its protection from UVB rays. A sunscreen with an SPF of 30 will protect you against 97% of UVB rays and will protect you 30 times longer than if you did not use sunscreen
All Saltee products are a minimum 30 SPF. And our face formulas are SPF 50. We care about ensuring the best sun protection allowing you reconnect with your sun confidence.
Prep your skin
We always feel better with a healthy glow – with this in mind our body products have tan accelerators that will help you achieve a ‘summer sun look’ without compromising your safety. Apart from safe sun exposure (with high SPF sunscreen) we’d also recommend a pre-vacay exfoliation to get you skin tan ready and looking your best.
Protect your eyes
The sun is damaging to your eyes. Protect your eyes with sunglasses and a hat to filter the light and help block out damaging rays. These important accessories aren’t just a fashion statement!
Wherever you’re planning your getaway this year, ensure you have Saltee by your side to protect your skin and it’s great for the whole family. Here’s to memorable Saltee adventures, wherever you may be.
