Perfect for the holiday season – and for days like today when the sun is blazing in our own country – is Bioderma’s Photoderm Max range. Not only does it give very high protection – SPF 50+, which blocks 98% of UVB rays – but it is a great, adaptable all-rounder for all the family.
After all, when packing to go away, who wants to take multiple products for different ages, skin types or occasions? I’m all for a one-for-all approach – and this Aquafluid dry touch cream is perfect for all, including children and those with sensitive skin.
I will be slathering this on before going out in the sun. It gives very high protection (so great for 0-100 ages) with has a unique texture. Technologically advanced, it basically feels fluid, like water, but yet has a dry touch finish. Skin is left with a lustre but not the sticky feeling many other sun creams can give – with the formula sinking in fast and easily. You are good to go – kids included – in minutes.
Bioderma was originally launched in the 1970s and now has a whole collection of sun creams and fluids to care for different skin concerns. All of Bioderma’s skin protection – and there’s a lot – contains its patented Cellular Bioprotection™, which blocks against the harmful effects of UV rays, as well as activating the skin’s natural defences, protecting cells and combating premature skin ageing.
Also included in my essential ‘sun-care pack’ is the Refreshing After-Sun Milk – this is like a tall glass of water for the skin. It has a lighter-than-light texture – perfect for dousing on after the shower (sinks in fast like a dream), yet it intensely rehydrates skin after days in the sun. Your skin feels instantly relieved and recharged.
What’s more, it also helps prolong your tan as well as soothing and preparing body and limbs for more sun by optimising its natural anti-UV protection. It’s your evening ‘must’ if holidaying in sunny climes.
Finally is this little gem – not strictly just for sun care – but one of those products that once you discover, you will never be without it again.
Basically a repair cream, which also moisturises, the Bioderma Cicabio Creme is a go-to for irritated skin. Dab it on and it immediately relieves discomfort and helps to repair sore or torn skin. Containing zinc to protect against bacterial infection – this is one of the staples that is perfect for carrying with you on the plane, or just when out and about. An emergency SOS in a tube.
