From pre and post holiday spa treatments to at home summer skincare tips, looking after your skin in the sun, with sweat, sunscreen and swimming added into the mix, needs a few tweaks so we asked a spa expert for their advice.
“An average t-shirt only gives protection of an SPF 8!”
ESPA Pro Defence SPF 15 £40.00
A pioneering daily UV sun protector with SPF 15, ESPA Pro Defence SPF that creates an ultra-light skin shield and helps provide protection from environmental damage. Golden Seaweed, knotgrass and chicory root extracts help provide protection from environmental exposure and hydrates skin, restoring its natural strength. Suitable for all skin types.
ESPA Gradual Tan Body £37.00
A deeply nourishing body moisturiser ESPA Gradual Tan works intuitively with your skin’s biochemistry to develop a healthy-looking tan over four hours, while leaving skin soft, smooth and naturally bronzed. Plant melanin works with tan accelerating DHA to create an even, longer lasting glow, shea butter and sweet almond oil nourish and hydrate, while jasmine, rosewood and ylang ylang delicately scent the skin. Suncare warning: this product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin ageing, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn. For best results, lightly exfoliate skin first to enhance the effect of your tan. Colour gradually develops over four hours.
ESPA Gradual Tan Face £20.00
A self-tan face concentrate that works intuitively with your skin’s biochemistry to develop a beautifully natural bronze colour that’s just right for your skin tone.
