Our guide to sun safety

While we’re all out enjoying the summer it’s important to be mindful of the heat and the sun! Here’s our refresher on sun safety to keep you protected while having fun in the sun:

Boots & Superdrug have an amazing range of SPF options in store, but we love the Anthelios range from La Roche Posay. Lightweight and perfect for those of you that don’t like the sticky feel some sun creams can leave! It’s great to apply under make-up, but just remember to let it sit for at least ten minutes first to form that protective layer.


Remember to reapply!

The NHS recommends to reapply every two hours so carry your suncream with you. Boots sell the Hawaiian Tropic Mineral Sun Protection Powder Brush, which is fantastic to touch up throughout the day. Pro tip: dust a little into the bridge of your sunglasses to stop them smearing make up!



It’s just as important to look after your eyes!

If your eyes are overexposed to sunlight and UV rays, this can damage your eyes. The simplest and most effective way to prevent this is to wear sunglasses with 100% UV protection. Shop in Boots and Vision Express for a great range of sunglasses.

Stay hydrated!

Bon Accord has two free bottle refill stations, one in St Nicholas Mall, and one on Upper Mall beside the Play Zone. If you’re looking for something a little more exciting, why not try Costa’s summer range? We can personally vouch for the Mango Berry Bubble Tea!
