5 summer tips from Soltan to keep you protected in the sun

The summer is fast approaching – and thank god for that!

If you’re anything like us, you’ll already be planning your trips away – and luckily, Soltan and Boots are on hand to ensure that we’ll stay protected all summer long.

Whether you’re heading abroad with the family, or staying closer to home, you’ll need to ensure that you’re doing the utmost to protect your skin from the sun!

Here are five things you need to remember when using sun protection – and some key products you’ll definitely want to pick up ASAP.

1. Start your sun protection before heading out

Yes, sun safety starts before you’ve even stepped outside.

30 minutes before you head into the sun, you should apply sun protection to every part of your body that’s going to be exposed.

That includes the backs of your ears, your neck, and the top of your head if your hair is thinning (you should always wear a hat if you can’t apply sun lotion on your head).

Soltan Protect & Moisturise Spray comes in SPF 30 and 50, and includes full UVA protection, so you can be sure you’re protected even before you leave the house.

2. Apply enough!

Most people don’t use enough sun protection – this is a fact.

Adults should be using between 6 to 8 teaspoons of lotion if covering the entire body, and this needs to be reapplied depending on what product you’re using.

Soltan Once Spray SPF50+ provides ultimate protection, allowing you to enjoy up to 8 hours of sun protection from a single application – incredible!

3. Use the right product for you

To guarantee protection from the sun, you need to make sure that you’re choosing the best – and the biggest – range.

Soltan is a leading sun care range for the entire family (including babies and children!), that includes lotions, sprays, sticks and facial SPFs.

The products, exclusive to Boots, contain full UVA protection, are dermatologically tested, water resistant, and are lightweight and easily absorbed.

The Soltan range is suitable for every skin type, so you can be sure everyone is enjoying the highest level of sun protection!

4. Keep an eye on the kids!

It’s all well and good ensuring your own sun protection, but it’s important to make sure that the little ones are safe in the sun too.

Children and babies have very sensitive skin, so it’s important for them to avoid peak times of sunlight (between 11am – 3pm) and stay in the shade.

Soltan boasts an entire kids range including lotions and sprays that offer protection in and out of the water, including the Soltan Kids Protect & Moisturise Suncare Roll On SPF50+, perfect for children’s delicate skin.

The new Soltan Kids Beach Powder even allows you to remove sand from the skin using talc-free, naturally derived ingredients, without any rubbing or rinsing. Amazing!

5. Sun protection isn’t just for your holidays

Although it may not always feel like it here in Ireland, our skin needs protection from the sun all year round… especially in the summer months.

Make sun protection part of your daily skincare routine by wearing a lightweight SPF under your makeup every day, and get used to applying lotion to your body when you leave the house.

You’ll thank yourself for it later!

Soltan is exclusive to Boots and available to purchase in store and online at
