P20 is the perfect sun protection for mums on the go

If you think SPF need only be worn during the summer – think again!

Indeed, it may feel like an unnecessary step in our skincare routine applying SPF, especially when the weather is particularly bleak but it is important to form a good habit and apply it every day. It’s also important to especially keep children in mind and protect their skin and after a long cold winter, it’s finally time to start thinking of how best to take care of our little ones from the strong UV rays.

P20 Continuous Spray 150ml (€30.00) is the go-to sun care product for mums on the go. With a multi-angle spray technology, P20 Continuous spray makes applying sun protection to those hard to reach areas easier. The unique formulation protects against both UVA and UVB rays, providing broad-spectrum sun protection. UVB is responsible for causing the majority of sunburns, while UVA rays can cause premature ageing of your skin in the form of wrinkles and age spots.

If you want to prevent damages to your child’s skin it ́s a good idea to choose a sunscreen with high UVA protection. Both the SPF 20, SPF 30 and SPF 50 Continuous Sprays have a significantly higher level of UVA protection than required. Even a light sunburn can cause long-lasting damages to your child’s skin, so we need to be careful when our children are enjoying the sun. Most of us know how important it is to protect our skin from sunburn, yet many of us forget to apply sunscreen properly.

The Scandinavian-manufactured sunscreen,P20, leaves no excuses for not applying sunscreen with Continuous Spray that makes it even more convenient to stay protected from the sun due to a spray technology that provides continuous and even coverage at all angles. Due to a twist lock cap, it ́s easy and safe to open and close the spray.P20 Continuous Spray retains the benefits of the existing P20 range ensuring that one application gives you up to 10 hours of protection, so you know your children are safe to enjoy any outdoor activity in the sun.

Top Tips for protecting your child in the sun:

  • Keep babies younger than six months of age out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
  • Wear long sleeve tops and trousers if possible.
  • Use a sunshade on your buggy when out and about.
  • Always use a sun hat to protect the face, ears and neck.
  • Apply P20 30 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply it generously every couple of hours.
  • Try to keep children out of the sun between the hours of 11am and 3pm when UV rays are at their strongest.

The P20range includes SPF15, SPF20, SPF30 and SPF50+ and prices range from €19.99-€34.99 and is available from leading pharmacies and airports nationwide.

We’re already thinking of our summer hols so we’ll definitely be stocking up on the sunscreen…the lobster look just really isn’t in this season!
