Sun Care Products For Summer

Spring is in full swing and the sun seems to be getting hotter with every passing day. December is just around the corner, meaning beach holidays and more time spent in the sun at the pool or doing outdoor activities. It’s important to protect your skin against the harsh UV rays of the sun, so check out these new sun care products to do just that. 

Aloe Unique Sun Care

Aloe Unique has an entire sun care range comprising eight different products, using the powerful active ingredients of the Aloe Ferox plant which contains twice as many amino acids as the regular aloe vera plant. Aloe ferox penetrates skin to the deepest layer, contributing to soft, smooth skin that is hydrated and rejuvenated. Using free-range farming techniques, this unique plant is harvested from the wild, creating not only a nourishing product but sustainable jobs for members of the local community too. Their sun care products offer a new level of pure, potent, botanically derived beauty and wellbeing.

Their after-sun uses tea tree to counteract the discomfort of sunburn, and the lip balm softens and plumps lips while protecting against chapping and dehydration. The anti-insect gel is a non-sensitive insect deterrent, suitable for all skin types, and the sun lotion protects your skin from the sun while being moisturised and nourished by the glycerine; it is water-resistant and suitable for use under make-up.

Prices: SPF 30 Sun Lotion, R110; SPF 50 Sun Lotion, R120; After Sun Gel, R79; Aloe Lips with SPF 15, R23; Anti- Insect Gel, R99.


















Vichy Idéal Soleil

This sun protection range addresses skin care, lifestyle and preferred textures. Their products are not classified by protection factor but rather by the benefits they offer. The sun care protection range is for the whole family and is suitable for sensitive skin.

The Vichy Idéal Soleil range includes an array of face care treatments which protect all types of skin against UV rays. There are varying levels of protection available so that you can choose what is suitable for you.

They also offer a children’s range that is safe to use on kids from 6 months old and up. These products are water-resistant for 40 minutes, contain no fragrance, and are oil free and suitable for sensitive skin.

All of their sun care products contain UVA-filtering systems which protect against the harmful effects of the sun against the whole UV spectrum.
