We all love having fun in the sun.
When summer arrived as a kid, we were all reminded to put sunscreen on. Catchphrases such as ‘slip, slop, slap’ became household sayings and reminded us all about importance applying our SPF during the warmer months.
But as technology has developed and as we become more educated about the harmful impacts of the sun, suncare has become an important part of our everyday skincare routines. Whilst it is important to wear sunscreen during the hotter season, it should not only be used in summer time. Ultra-violet (UV) rays can still penetrate windows and increased exposure to blue light from screen time can also cause harm to the skin.
So, it is important, now more than ever, to find a sunscreen that is optimal for everyday. One that not only protects the skin from the harmful effects of the sun, but one that also works to hydrate and nourish it.
Meet our new and re-vamped Carroten SPF50+ suncare range - a sunscreen, for everyday. So, what makes Carroten’s sunscreen perfect for everyday?
Firstly, our entire range contains a sun protection factor (SPF) of 50+ and broad-spectrum technology to protect the skin from both UVA (ageing) and UVB (burning) sun rays. More specifically, UVA rays are responsible for fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots whilst UVB rays are attributed to causing sunburn and skin dehydration. It is also important to note that SPF50+ is considered very high protection and blocks almost 98% of the sun’s UVB rays.
Our range also offers advanced skin care, through a unique Moisture Balance System which combines Hyaluronic Acid and Betaine. Hyaluronic Acid or ‘HA’ is a naturally occurring substance that is found in our bodies, which works to provide rich hydration to the skin. Not only does it hydrate, but it also moisturises the skin and has the ability to reduce wrinkles and signs of ageing. Betaine, much like HA, has fantastic hydration capabilities and helps the skin look plump and youthful. It also soothes, moisturises and protects it.
Advanced suncare and skincare is not where it ends with our suncare range. It also contains a number of other unique properties, which make it optimal for everyday use.
The formulation is ultra-light, non-oily and absorbs immediately, allowing it to effortlessly glide onto the skin with an amazing aqueous sensation.
All of our suncare products have been dermatologically tested and are water resistant for up to 4 hours. But don’t forget to apply a liberal amount of sunscreen evenly over the entire body and reapply every 2 hours or more often after sweating, swimming or towelling.
And we can’t discount the face! Our SPF50+ face suncare lotion is specifically designed to suit all skin types and is packaged in easy to use face pump for optimal application.
Remember sunscreen isn’t just for those summer days. Sunscreen is for every day.
So make sure to implement it into your daily routine and apply it even on cloudy days or when staying indoors. Always read the label and follow the directions for use. Wear protective clothing, hats and eyewear when exposed to the sun. Prolonged sun exposure should be avoided. Frequent use and re-application in accordance with directions is required for effective sun protection.
