There’s still a few weeks left to soak up the sun this summer so we’re sharing the sun protection products vital to your beauty stash. By looking after your skin in the sun, you’ll not only forgo nasty sunburn and lasting sun damage – you’ll also keep your skin nourished, glowing and that all-important tan for weeks longer. From sun cream to hair sun protection, our NUXE Sun range features every product needed for ideal sun protection, flawless tanning and skin moisturising.
Which sun lotion shall I use this summer?
It’s the obvious one but never underestimate the importance of a high quality sun cream that not only prevents you from burning, but also from the long-term effects of sun damage.
Our NUXE Sun Lotion SPF 30 features 4 chemical filters to provide high protection from UVB and UVA rays, plus Rice and Rosemary extracts to helps repair skin. It also contains Water Hyacinth which keep the skin thoroughly hydrated and soothing Kau Pe flower to prevent overheating. Providing 4-hour moisturisation* with an addictive fragrance of sweet orange, tiara and vanilla; sun cream has never been so glorious.
How and when shall I use a Sun Tanning Oil?
As long as you’re staying protected and limiting your hours in the sun, there’s nothing wrong with spending some time perfecting that sun tan. And for that, you’re number one companion is our luxurious sun tan oil.
Whilst providing ideal sun protection, the NUXE Sun Tanning Oils intensely moisturises with some wondrous natural origin ingredients: the combination of macadamia oil, sunflower oil and shea butter nourishes the skin to encourage a longer-lasting tan.
What about a Sun Facial Sunscreen?
It’s doubly important to ensure your face is highly protected as this is where we sustain the majority of long-term sun damage. Prevent the development of wrinkles and brown spots by investing in a high-factor facial sun cream.
Our NUXE specific Facial Sunscreen provides high sun protection, with a soothing silky formula which sinks into the skin effortlessly without leaving white streak.
Is a Sun Hair Protection necessary?
We spend so much time protecting our skin, but the condition of our hair can also be hugely affected by sun damage. There’s a reason why our hair often feels dryer during the summer months; UV rays burn the hair follicles plus the added aggressors of salt and chlorine leave it feeling brittle and dull. NUXE Sun Hair Protection is an oily formula that keeps the hair nourished and protected. It uses Rice Protein Extract, plus Coconut Oil to nourish and helps repairs its fibres. It also helps protect the scalp from sunburn.
Will an After-Sun Lotion prolong my holiday tan?
After care is almost as important as sun protection during the day. Following sun exposure, the skin tends to be seriously dehydrated, and without replenishing the skin, you’re at further risk of sustaining longer term sun damage. Give back to your skin with NUXE After Sun lotion which soothes and refreshes, putting hydration back into the skin’s protective layer and cooling it down. It also uses a combination of carob seed powder as well as sunflower and coconut oils to beautify your tan and make it last for longer.
