3 Simple Steps to Heatwave-Proof your Skin

rural field in summer 3

There’s nothing better than embracing everything the outdoors and a rural way of life has to offer but let’s face it, sometimes a UK heatwave can leave a serious mark on our skin (pun absolutely intended). With soaring temperatures, blistering sun and a distinct lack of available shade your skin can take a beating during the summer months when you thrive outside. 

You need a targeted, simple collection of skincare products that work as hard as you do to protect, nourish and repair when it’s time to roll out of bed or hang up the boots at the end of a long day. Luckily at Barker & Sloane we have just the fuss-free solution…

FOR THE MORNING: Barker & Sloane Daily Defender.

You know what they say, the clues in the name and you couldn’t be more right. Preparing your skin for the day ahead is one of the easiest ways to ensure your skin is protected against the harmful effects of UVA rays (the ones that age you) & UVB rays (the ones that burn you). It’s simple skin-prep for skin that’s about to face the elements. Apply generously to a cleansed face and neck first thing in the morning to allow a hardworking cocktail of marine algae, plant actives and powerful antioxidants to hydrate, plump and strengthen the skin from the inside out. Think of it as the foundation of your day.

The perfect spritz-and-go pick-me up to get stashed alongside your water bottle.
