Everything you need to know about summer skincare
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.
Read on to discover our Top Tips for Summer Skin during the warmer months…plus an exclusive reader offer below.
Something for everyday
Saltee’s SPF50 Face Daily Protection Formula is suncare as skincare with UVA and UVB protection – light enough for daily wear when you’re still dreaming of your next trip and strong enough to protect in the hot sun. This one works great under make-up as a primer!
It includes a unique ingredient Venuceane (sourced from the ocean) that counters photo damage and is anti-ageing and provides UV and IR radiation protection. Plus, super hydrating Avocado oil which is packed with Vitamin E to revitalise and replenish the skin during the day.
Face protection for those hot summer days
After weeks of dreaming you’ve arrived at last. Saltee’s SPF50 Face Sea & Sun Formula is naturally derived UVA and UVB protection. It absorbs ultra-quick whilst cucumber extract hydrates as you hit the beach.
As well as Venuceane it also contains Nordic pine bark which helps combat and prevent hyper-pigmentation giving you a fresh faced Scandi-sheen and Birch water packed full of healthy amino acids to hydrate and protect the skin – essential when you’re out in the sun all day.
Keeping active outside
Whether you’re planning to sweat or get wet, SPF30 Body Active Sun Lotion protects while you get outside, at home or away. This product includes MelinOil that stimulates your skin’s natural sun defences and prevents photo ageing as well as helping you to maintain that beautiful summer glow and sun-kissed bronzed skin.
With a blend of natural essential oils such as Jojoba and grapeseed oils that soothe tired, aching muscles – Body Active Sun Lotion will help you relax – whatever’s worked you into a sweat!
Relaxing poolside, seaside or in the garden
So, you’ve made it poolside, seaside or simply relaxing in the garden – reach for Saltee’s hydrating SPF30 Body Sea & Sun Lotion, formulated with ultra-high UVA and UVB protection. Including a unique tan accelerator, MelinOil, that boost your natural glow.
Don’t forget Coconut oil is nature’s tropical hydrator! It works to nourish and hydrate all day long. Plus, Gota Kola which works to repair and protect damaged skin – brightening and rejuvenating.
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!
