Now that summer truly is here it is time to slip, slop, slap.
A lot of people choose to forgo sunscreen in order to get a tan, but what they don’t realise is the damage the sun’s rays are doing to their skin. Exposure to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays will dry out your skin, cause premature ageing, lead to sunburn and worst of all skin cancer!
You can still achieve a nice sun kissed glow even while using sunscreen, so don’t think that if you apply you look like a freaky snowman all year. But with so many sunscreens on the market how do you know which one to choose?
You should be looking for a broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF factor of 30+. The broad spectrum sunscreens will protect against both UVA and UVB rays, protecting all layers of your skin from damage.
One sunscreen that has both is Hamilton sunscreen.
With bottles that fit perfectly in one hand, making it super easy to squeeze the product out and with the bottles flat shape it is super easy to store in your beach bag.
As everyone’s skin type is different, the hamilton range includes a sunscreen for sensitive skin and toddlers as well as a general family sunscreen.
All three variations offer the same level of protection, SPF 30+ with 4 hours of water resistance, the only noticeable difference is the consistency of the sunscreen. with the sunscreens becoming more fluid for the more sensitive skin types. All three have almost no smell and are easily rubbed into the skin with no residue, so they can be worn everyday.

The Sensitive Skin version contains only zinc oxide and titanium oxide and is designed to not clog your pores, perfect for your face! While the toddlers version contains lower levels of active ingredients for even more sensitive skin.
As someone with sensitive skin I am really glad that they have come out with a sunscreen designed for sensitive skin, it also means you can use the same sunscreen for your body and face.
hamilton sunscreen is a must have summer beauty item for those wanting to protect their skin.
