Your new summer staple
Summer is so exciting for so many reasons; it spells road trips, barbeques and long days at the beach. It’s the ultimate time of year to get out of the house, let your hair down, and make the most of your weekends.
However, summer definitely isn’t the time to let your guard down when it comes to protecting your skin. With some of the strongest sun rays in the world shining down on us, our skin needs to be protected – and protected well.
Neutrogena Beach Defence is one summer staple the bh team are going to have in their beauty kits this summer – and we definitely recommend you do, too.
You see, this sunscreen is more than just your average, run-of-the-mill sun protector, it’s got three big benefits that you and your skin will love…
Benefit #1: it’s broad spectrum
If a sunscreen successfully protects your skin from UVA (ageing rays) and UVB (burning rays) then it can be labelled as a broad-spectrum protection sunscreen. NEUTROGENA® Beach Defence™ Sunscreen is SPF50 and offers broad-spectrum protection, which means that it’s effective in helping to protect you from a whole range of the sun’s skin damaging effects, like burning, premature ageing and skin cancer.
Benefit #2: it contains HELIOPLEX® technology
According to Sharon Dowling, Medical Affairs Manager, HELIOPLEX® technology refers to a special stabilised sunscreen that delivers high or very high UV protection from the sun. Developed over a 10-year period by Dr. Curt Cole, an R&D Photobiology expert at Johnson & Johnson, it ensures the highest protection from the sun. This advancement means that any sunscreen containing HELIOPLEX® is much better equipped to protect your skin from the sun than sunscreens that don’t contain this technology.
Benefit #3: it’s skin beautifying
Not only does NEUTROGENA® Beach Defence™ Sunscreen protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun, but it also wards against the drying effects of other summer elements, such as sand, salt water and chlorine. This is thanks to a nourishing blend of properties in the formulation that help to relieve dry skin and ensure your skin feels moisturised, looks healthy and beautiful.
Added extra: Apart from the aforementioned benefits, NEUTROGENA® Beach Defence™ Sunscreen is also lightweight on application, water resistant for up to four hours, hypoallergenic, and oil and PABA free. It’s available in a Lotion or Spray variant.
