We all know we should be wearing sun cream when we are outside enjoying the sunshine, but do you know which Solero is best for you?

It can be difficult to work out, so here are our recommendations for sun protection for you and your family. One of the easiest ways to decide is by the type of skin type you have.

 

 

Very Pale:

If you have very pale skin, freckles, blue eyes or blonde or red hair, it’s best to use an SPF 50+ to help you avoid burning.

Try: Solero Ultra Sensitive SPF 50 200ml

Fair:

If you have fair skin, blue, green or hazel eyes or blonde or red hair, it’s best to use an SPF 50+ sun cream or SPF 30 as a minimum.

Try: Solero SPF 50 Moisturising Sun Spray

Medium:

If you have fair to medium skin, brown eyes or brown hair you should try an SPF of 30 when you’re out and about.

Try: Solero Sun Lotion SPF 30 200ml

 Olive or Mediterranean:

If you have olive or Mediterranean skin, brown eyes or brown or dark brown hair use an SPF of 30 or 15 at a minimum.

Try: Solero Sun Lotion SPF 30 200ml

Brown:

If you have brown skin, brown eyes, or brown or dark hair try to use a minimum of SPF 15 to keep your skin safe in the sun.

Try: Solero SPF 15 Moisturising Sun Spray 200ml

Dark:

If you have brown or very dark skin, brown eyes or brown or dark hair make sure to use a minimum of SPF 15 when you’re enjoying the sunshine.

Try: Solero SPF 15 Moisturising Sun Spray 200ml

Sun Allergy:

For those of us who get prickly heat it can be hard to enjoy the nice weather. Why not try our New Solero Sun Allergy Prevention Spray? It has been specially designed for those who experience prickly heat. With an SPF 30, the new dermatologically tested sunscreen helps to prevent sun allergies and sun blisters.

For Children:

Children skin is more delicate and sensitive to UV damage, that’s why it’s best to use an SPF 50+ and never below SPF 30.

Why not try: Solero Kids Sun Lotion SPF 50+ 200ml

After Sun:

If you have been burnt in the sun, try using an after sun cream. These can help cool and soothe your skin and provide you with some relief.

Why not try: Solero Aftersun Lotion 200ml

 

Our Pharmacist Anshu’s Top Tips for Sun Care:

  • Don’t just use sun cream on sunny days – you also need it when it’s cloudy because the UVA rays can pass through clouds.
  • Store your sun cream in a cool dry place to keep it at its best and remember to check expiry dates.
  • Apply sun cream at least 15-20 minutes before you go out into the sun to allow time for it to dry.
