The Science Behind The Formula

The Best Body Sunscreens For Summer

the best body sunscreens

No matter the season, protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is a non-negotiable for keeping it healthy. During the warm Summer months, we often expose more skin in an attempt to keep ourselves cool, so it is vital that you apply a high protection body sunscreen to prevent UV-related skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin cancer.

Whether you’re lounging by the pool, having a picnic on the beach, or sitting back and relaxing in your garden. Discover our edit of the best body sunscreens for everyday use. From invisible sprays, to lightweight lotions, and hydrating body lotions, these are our favourite body sunscreens so that you can go about your day while keeping your skin protected.

HOW DO YOU APPLY SUNSCREEN PROPERLY?

The majority of people do not apply enough sunscreen.  As a general rule, adults should apply approximately two milligrams of sunscreen per square metre of skin, which is the equivalent to a shot glass full or two tablespoons. For your face, you should apply a dessert spoon’s worth. If sunscreen is applied too thinly, then you’re reducing the amount of protection that it has been developed to give. We recommend using an SPF of at least 30-50, and if you plan to be out in the sun long enough to risk burning, you need to make sure to apply it twice:

  • 30 minutes before going out
  • just before going out

Sunscreen also needs to be reapplied frequently, and this includes applying it straight after you have been in water, even if the manufacturer says that its ‘water resistant.’ You should also reapply after towel drying, sweating, and it is also recommended to reapply every 2 hours for optimum protection.

How to protect your children’s skin this summer

Studies show that just one episode of blistering sunburn in childhood can increase our chances of skin cancer by around 50%.1 And though young skin heals faster than grown-up skin, it’s more vulnerable to injuries including sun damage from UV exposure. This is due to its structural differences including a lower concentration of melanin, thinner skin structure, and an incomplete skin barrier. That’s why it’s so important to protect your child’s skin from the sun’s rays, particularly during long or high periods of sun exposure. It is also crucial that we educate our children about the harmful effects of the sun and the power of good sun habits, so they can grow up with healthy, protected skin and a much lower risk of developing skin cancer in later life.

How the sun affects the skin

UVB rays are strongest in the summer, especially between the peak hours of 11am and 3pm, as well as in locations close to the equator and at a high altitude. But whether or not we get sunburn actually has nothing to do with temperature,so we mustn’t be lulled into a false sense of security by cool breezes or cloudy skies.

UVB radiation does most of its damage in the spring and summer. UVB rays have short wavelengths which focus their damage on the skin’s surface. The visible results of UVB exposure are sunburn, along with eventual pigmentation and dryness. UVB radiation also causes DNA damage to skin cells, which can lead to genetic mutations and cancer.

Meanwhile, UVA radiation is present all year round, no matter the weather. UVA rays have long wavelengths that can penetrate deep into the skin. There are no immediate visible signs of damage, but UVA exposure will eventually be observed in the form of premature skin ageing, including lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.

The sun also produces visible light and infrared-A. These forms of radiation have a negative impact on the skin by causing skin cell damage, collagen breakdown, and a weakened skin barrier. This leads to unhealthy skin that is more at risk of skin cancer.

UV radiation is the proven cause of non-melanoma cancers, and a contributing factor to melanoma.

Children and sun exposure

Sunburns at a young age are strongly correlated with melanoma in later life. In fact, sun exposure during childhood and teenage years have been proven to play a role in the cause of all types of skin cancers.3 Research has also found show that a higher number of sunburns in our late teens and early twenties increase our chances of developing melanoma.4

Children’s skin is more sensitive to the sun’s rays, which is why protection in childhood years is essential. It’s so important for our children to start practicing healthy sun behaviours during early childhood, as it will encourage habits to be established, including wearing a high-level, broad-spectrum SPF, wearing a sun hat and sunglasses, and seeking shade.

For children under the age of six months, they must be kept out of direct sunlight at all times. Parents and carers should also be careful to avoid excessive heat, because babies can’t control their bodily temperature like adults. Once a child has reached six months of age, they can spend a short amount of time in the sun, but must be covered up with loose protective clothing, a broad-brimmed hat and a high-level, broad-spectrum SPF.5

Keep children in the shade during the peak hours of sunshine, and don’t forget to top up sun protection, especially after swimming or towel-drying.

Of course, it can be difficult to apply sun protection to your children, especially wriggly toddlers who are extra excited to be out in the sun. Children with sensitivities may also be difficult to convince. Older children can also be hard to persuade; if your teen is spending a day in the sun and you’re not present, you might be concerned that they won’t re-apply their sun protection or wear a hat. But there are steps you can take to help keep them protected.

Top tips for protecting your children’s skin this summer

  • Make SPF application a fun activity, not a chore. Apply the correct amount in a fun pattern and let your child help to rub it in. They could join the dots or spell a word.
  • Ask your child to name each body part as you apply sun protection, and to point out any area that you may have ‘forgotten’.
  • Sing a song each time you apply – let your child choose their favourite.
  • Give your child some control over SPF application. Set a timer on your phone for a top-up and encourage them to listen out for the signal. Show them where the sunscreen is kept in the bag, and let them take it out when it’s time to reapply.
  • Make SPF a key part of your summer morning routine. Remind your child that it must be applied before you head out for the day, ideally 30 minutes before sun exposure. Praise your child every time they remember or let you apply it fuss-free.
  • For older children, educate them about the importance of sun protection. If they question why they need to wear it, avoid the “because I said so” approach. Instead, explain about the damage caused by sun exposure and how wearing sun protection every day will keep their skin healthy.
  • Make sure your child is happy and comfortable in their sun hat, sunglasses and protective clothing. If a sunhat is too tight, for example, they will be more likely to remove it. Let them be involved in the shopping process and pick a colour and pattern that they love.
  • Encourage your child to seek out shady areas in the middle of the day. Tell them to look out for big shadows where they can sit, relax and eat their lunch. If you are going out for the day, pack extra toys, games and snacks to keep them occupied during these peak hours, so they are less likely to dash out into direct sunlight.
  • If you have a pram, invest in a well-ventilated, UV protective sunshade that will protect them and keep them cool during naps or walks.
  • Always offer more fluids on hot days, as sun exposure can cause dehydration. Your kids will be delighted to know that ice lollies count!
