I admit it; I am a true sun worshipper. When the sun comes out, I’m out, it makes me incredibly happy and I do love to soak it up. Although, it is important to keep in mind protecting your skin from the harsh rays. Whether I decided to spend all day in it on holiday, or just an hour or so at the weekend, I always ensure to think about protection. That said, I always make sure I apply the best tan protection I can, as it’s super important.

This year I completely changed up my sun protection. Now that I’m 21, an adult in right (although sometimes may not always act like one) it was time to take travelling pretty serious. I love adventuring and it is my passion to travel, visit new places and consume new exciting cultures. When I do so, I always ensure I have the necessities. The travel documents, my tech equipment to get all those shots and of course, my sun care. When I was younger I never really understood how important it was. My mum used to apply it for me and I never knew what brand did what. Now, I have a lot more understanding after talking to the team at Institut Esthederm.

A few months back I had the opportunity to attend their press day for their new sun care product releases. When I was their I got to talk to some lovely experts that informed me on how certain sun care is created for different skin types. I have fairly isotretinoin 10mg normal skin, sometimes on the dry or oily side and can catch the sun quite easily. I told them I prefer lightweight products, as I hate getting all sticky and ending up with sand in all kinds of crevices. So I was kindly gifted their Adaptasun Body Lotion* for strong sun.

As much as I love to tan, I do always make sure I have the right protection on. When I go away with the means to lie in the sun, I usually start off with an SPF 30. This product with its three sun symbols means that it protects your skin against normal to strong sun rays. With UV inCellium Technology, this lotion actually helps skin better defend itself in extreme sun.

With this I found I got a much deeper sunkissed tan and that’s because the formula contains Adaptasun, an ingredient that works to optimise tanning and as well protect you from the rays. This ingredient stimulates the production of melanin, which is a group of natural pigments in the skin that darken with the sun rays and result in a tan. Clever eh?

I honestly had such a good experience using this and this will be one I’ll be taking away with me on my sunny holidays in the future. You can purchase it here along with the rest of the range.

What SPF is your top choice?
