SKIN AND TANNING
Tanning is the skin’s natural response to UV rays. It is a cell mechanism triggered when the sun’s rays penetrate the skin and activate the production of melanin in order to protect the underlying tissue but this is insufficient to block all harmful UV rays
It is so important to select the most appropriate sunscreen. Consider both your skin type and sun conditions.

Invisible Protective spray spf 50 for face/body
We need both UVA and UVB protection.
UVB rays cause burning and UVA CAUSE AGEING. and are 100 x more plentiful that UVB. They are present all year round and penetrate much more deeply. Sun exposure is a primary cause of premature ageing. Protection from the sun will reduce free radical damage and the signs of photoageing such as wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.
Sun protection is essential but the SPF50 make up compact has proved invaluable when the weather has been so unpredictable.It is a flattering foundation but when the sun has broken through it offers reassuring protection.
The Advanced Nutrition programme from iiaa is a premium range of beauty supplements to encourage healthy skin and general wellbeing. I have always been interested in the inside out approach and I whilst I advocate topical products supplements are another tool for skin health in the face and body.
This summer I am taking daily Skin Complete. 2 capsules with food.
The key nutrients are Vit. A+ (D) and a combination of phytonutrients to provide U.V protection (hope we have a summer)
The sun can take us all by surprise and if that should happen to you reach for topical vitamin C serums.
