This weekend, all signs point are pointing to a heatwave across the country! As we all rush out to bask in the sunshine after too many days of rain and clouds, it’s important to remember to protect your skin with suncream. As we age our skin becomes more delicate and we are more prone to burning. UV light also speeds up the emergence of lines, wrinkles and sun spots, whilst also damaging the skins ability to repair itself. Add to that the increased risk of skin cancer and it becomes urgent that we no longer step out into the sun without proper protection.
