During this unusually hot Belfast weather it's hard not to dream of the holiday lifestyle; lounging by the pool or sunbathing at the beach without a care in the world. However the reality of Belfast heat is slogging away doing the same old chores that always need done in 24 degrees - fun! But I must not moan - watching my 5 year old run his socks off on sports day when it was a dry, warm Belfast day was fab. As is blogging in the garden whilst nursing an ice cold beverage ;)
So with even Northern Ireland experiencing holiday climes, my attention is drawn to getting my summer vibes on and prepping for holiday. We all know that the sun is very necessary for our health and our vitamin D production, as well as greatly improving mood (or am I the only one?!). But balance is key, and protection from the damaging UVA and UVB rays is vital.
Every year Framar Health stock ranges that we trust and can rely on, such as Aloe Pura - a great range of organic natural sun creams and after sun lotion, coming in an SPF15 and 25. Great for the family and for those with sensitive skin and includes vitamins, jojoba, avocado & chamomile. Also Jason has a great range of all-mineral sun screen that is chemical and fragrance free providing UVA and UVB protection and creating a natural barrier to protect skin against sun burn.
Organii is our newest range and is organic and free from SLS, Parabens, Phthaltes, Silicone, Mineral Oils and has not been tested on animals. The SPF30 is just new and has no whitening effect on the skin. The natural minerals of non nano zinc oxide and titanium dioxide will provide full spectrum UV protection by reflecting the sun rays away from your skin. Organii SPF 30 is suitable for all skin types including sensitive and fair skin. UVB protection will help to prevent sun burn whilst the UVA protection will help prevent skin ageing caused by the sun. We are also stocking the facial SPF15, protecting your face whilst the organic ingredients including Argan, Jojoba and Hyaluronic Acid will help to nourish and moisturise your skin. The Organii SPF15 Facial Sun Cream is suitable for all skin types and ideal for fair and sensitive skin with NO whitening effect. The Organii After Sun cream is perfect after a day of sun exposure, moisturising whilst replenishing softness and hydration back into the skin using key ingredients of Shea Butter and Aloe Vera Juice.
I can't wait to give this new brand a try on our family holiday this year, as I usually buy separate sun creams for the kids because Ed and I start on a high factor but then reduce our SPF as our tan builds. However this year we all plan on using SPF30 for the duration of the two weeks we are away, completely protecting our skin. Look forward to reporting back on how we get on...!
