Sun cream when its cloudy
It goes without saying that the weather has perhaps failed to live up to our hopes recently, given the time of year.
Though you may have seen some bright days, the chances are that things haven’t been feeling very warm for you most of the time recently when you’ve been out and about.
And the less said about the unseasonal snow that turned up before Easter the better!
We may not have yet been having the sort of weather that people associate with cracking out the sun cream for.
As the British Skin Foundation’s Hermione Lawson explained recently, a lot of the time people don’t remember to cover themselves up or put on sunscreen on cooler, cloudy days.
“However, not only can the weather change quickly, but you can still burn on a cloudy or windy day, so it is still important to protect your skin,” she warned recently.
She said that sunburn is connected to ultraviolet radiation rather than how warm it is. UV rays from the sun can get through clouds.
Ms Lawson’s expert advice for the late spring, summer and early autumn periods was that it was “always better to be safe than be sorry.”
She advised that people should cover themselves up using loose garments, wear a protective hat and put on sunscreen with a high SPF - sun protection factor. She recommended using cream of at least SPF 30.
Last year the British Skin Foundation’s Bevis Man explained how skin care was important throughout the year.
He recommended “putting on sunscreen during the warmer months [and] moisturising regularly during the winter months.”
A lot of the time, people forget the fact that skin is actually the biggest organ the body has, he suggested. They take their skin for granted. People should put more effort into protecting skin properly, he advised.
“We know that getting sunburnt substantially increases the risk of developing skin cancer at a later stage, so if there are ways in which we can protect the skin, we ought to,” he warned.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
