Skin products to energise you
Skin products to energise you: We are currently basking in a kind-of heatwave here in London, and it’s a good time to indulge in my annual obsession - clean suncream. It’s hard to find, but you may want to make sure your suncream doesn’t contain a load of toxins. Why? We absorb 60% of what we apply on to our skin into our bloodstream, so nasty chemicals in suncream go straight in. The rise of ‘clean skincare products means we are becoming increasingly conscious of all this, so here are some ideas for clean suncream - the Love Island tan* without the wrinkles. *gratuitous Love Island mention
My favourite - and the search is ongoing, is Soleil Toujours 100% Mineral Sunscreen Glow Spf 30. Don't let the 'glow' bit put you off, but it is slightly tinted. The reason for this is most natural sunscreens make you look like a clown from the Zinc Oxide when you put them on. Soleil have got around this by tinting it. It kind of works. Zinc Oxide delivers the most effective, stable and safe protection against UV rays, so it needs to be in there.
Let me know what you think. Now I must stop thinking about suncream and think about something more interesting!
