Sun protection is vital to keep your skin healthy and retain youthful radiance.

The sun is all around us, not just at the beach, we are exposed to UV rays on our way to work, when we go for a walk, when we are on the roof hanging out the washing…


95% of the UV rays are UVA rays and are present throughout the year. UVA rays can pass through glass and penetrate the skin deeply causing damage day after day.

UVB are more present during the summer and dangerous; they cause sunburn, they lead to premature photo-ageing as well as skin cancer. Sand, concrete and water accentuate the effects of the sun.
