|Yes, we know that talk of sun damage may seem a bit redundant in
our mild, damp climate (we’re trying to put it politely). But partly
because we so seldom see the sun, we’re sensitive to it. And when it
does make a rare appearance we’re tempted to make the most of it,
In the short term, exposure to sun can cause sun burn, while long term
damage includes ageing of the skin and in some severe cases, skin cancer.
We don’t suggest that you sit in a darkened room until sundown. Just follow
our easy guide and take care.
||Even on sunless, cloudy days,
keep your face protected with
Somersets SPF15 replenishing
post-shave moisturiser. The Shea Butter,
Japanese Green Tea and Vitamins A and
B help restore the skin’s natural balance,
while the sunscreens will protect against
UVA and UVB rays.
On rare hot days, or if you’re in a
sunny climate, try to stay out of
the sun between 10am and 4pm.
If you have to go out, always wear
a long-sleeved shirt and long
trousers to protect your skin.
Long-sleeved cotton t-shirts are best,
and loose fitting clothes will
keep you cool.
Apply sunscreen on all exposed
skin, particularly forehead and
face, ears, and the back of the
neck. If you’re thinning on top, or bald,
don’t forget the top of your head.
Always apply sunscreen
about half an hour before
you go out.
