It’s here… it’s REALLY here!
Yes, after what is being described as the most miserable May the country has ever seen (radiators at full blast; scarves and winter coats given regular outings) it appears that the sun has decided to grace our fair land with its presence.
Cue a steady stream of ice-cream, shorts-and-t-shirts – oh, and sun-burn.
And not only does red and raw skin look (gonna be blunt here) not very attractive at all, but harsh rays can furthermore be seriously damaging and ageing.
In short, sunscreen is an absolute must at this time of year – even when you’re on home-soil.
Still, Irish weather requires an Irish-appropriate product: enter P20 sunscreen – THE sunscreen for extreme weather conditions
We know that those who are frequently exposed to UV rays before the age of 25, as well as people who get sunburnt as a child or teenager, are at a much greater risk of developing skin cancer in later life.
In fact, their risk is almost doubled – and that means slathering on a higher SPF; think P20 sunscreen SPF 50.
And why do we love P20 in particular? Its unique formula is non-greasy (hurrah!) and fragrance free (hear, hear!).
Better still, it provides great coverage, even in water, for up to ten hours, meaning it only needs to be applied once-a-day.
The P20 range consists of SPF15, SPF20, SPF30 and SPF50+ and is suitable for those with very delicate and sensitive skin.
With prices ranging from €19.99-€34.99, P20 is available from pharmacies nationwide.
