The Importance of SPF, all year round

Thought Saltee was just for summer?

Gone are the days where cloudy skies meant we could leave our SPF behind.  UVB rays might be weaker during the colder months but UVA rays are the ones we need to be aware of.  Your skin is prone to wrinkles, premature ageing and damage just as much now as they were when you were soaking up the sun on holiday during the summer.

If you’re heading slopeside, stock up on your SPF. Snow actually reflects UVA rays, doubling your exposure! Other common spaces to think of are through your car windows whilst driving and shorter bursts of exposure.  Even popping out for an Autumn stroll.

The best way to shield yourself from these harmful rays is by ensuring your skin is never exposed without daily protection. Saltee products are all broad-spectrum SPF. That means they provide protection against both UVA and UVB rays making them the ideal products for daily use all year round.

Everyday SPF for your face

We recommend SPF50 Face Daily Protection Formula which is our ultra-light everyday suncream. Not only will it provide that essential protection but its suncare as skincare formula means you can double up as your day cream. Packed with Vitamin E, it’ll leave your skin feeling and looking healthy and nourished. A skin and suncare hybrid that offers UVA, UVB and infra-red radiation protection as well as being a lightweight daily moisturiser.

Boosting your daily steps?

Try our SPF30 Body Active Sun Lotion. An active lifestyle requires SPF30 Body Active Sun Lotion.  Whether you’re at home or away protect and nourish your skin with our ultra-high UVA and UVB sun care.  Natural essential oils work to soothe and calm tired aching muscles, perfect for any day outside.  Includes MelinOil that stimulates your skin’s natural sun defences and prevents photo ageing and helps achieve beautiful glowing skin.

Keep your hands healthy

Give your hands the same treatment as you give your face.  Our hands are the first part of the body to show ageing and with all the extra washing and protection we’ve been using, your hands will be feeling it.  Moisturise using SPF30 Face Sea & Sun Formula.  This will provide ultra-high UVA and UVB protection plus, Nordic Pine Bark will help moisturise and reduce hyper-pigmentation.

This doesn’t mean you need to skip out on your sanitising hand gel though.  Saltee hands pairs perfectly with our Sea & Sun Formula.  A luxury cleansing gel that feels like a moisturiser.  It’s infused with 70% alcohol so it effectively combats 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.  But, like no other, has a scent so divine, it’ll remind you of your favourite perfume.  Neroli oil will calm and soothe the senses, helping to eliminate the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Maintain a winter glow

Our Tan Enhance Formula is pretty special.  It contains MelinOil which makes it perfect for those post-sunny days, winter or summer. It helps you to achieve a long-lasting tan and beautiful, healthy bronzed skin by stimulating the natural skin sun defence system in order to better protect cell from UV damage and premature ageing.  This makes it ideal for use all year round as after-care for any sun exposure, come rain or shine.

All Saltee products are vegan friendly, cruelty free, gluten free, paraben free and dermatologically tested.
