This is certainly a favourite sun care range for me Piz Buin with it’s distinctive smell of summer. Instant Glow has an illuminating finish due to light reflecting pearls leaving a very flattering effect when sprayed onto the body. I have used this on my face and I have to say it’s great having sun care with an illuminating finish with an added SPF30. It’s very important to use sun care all year round to reduce any long term skin damage, preventing premature ageing and any other serious skin problems. It’s not until later in your life that you see the damage done from your early years in the sun. Here’s some great advice from Dr Jennifer Jones, Consultant Dermatologist.
“ It’s important to make sure you use sun protection from
the very first day of Spring to keep skin protected from
the sun’s rays. Having been covered by clothing over
the winter months, skin is especially sensitive to UV rays
on first exposure so whether you’re at home or abroad
it’s important to use proper protection every day.”

I’ve always liked Simple and have given products like these to my beginner make-up students in the past. They are really great value, suit most skin types and cater for the very sensitive. Here’s some products you should certainly look out for this winter to add to your routine and possibly make-up kit.
Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Wipes £2.99.
Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash £3.29.
Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-up Remover £3.29.
Simple Kind To Skin Soothing facial Toner £2.99.
Simple To Kind Skin+ Illuminating Radiance Cream £8.99.
Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser £3.99.
Skin care is essential to keep the skin healthy. Starting out with a simple routine with some of the products above is a really good idea especially if you wear make-up. In winter the weather can be quite brutal to your skin so you need to protect and look after the largest organ of the body especially if it’s sensitive.
The Illuminating Radiance Cream £8.99 SPF15 is very new to me (the most expensive of the line up!) It does give a wonderful light reflective glow and feels creamy and nourishing on application, feels like it seals the moisture and at the same time brightens any skin tone.
Simple online and available at Boots.
