Want to fake a tan, but feeling a bit cautious? We understand. For years, there has been a great divide between those who can apply product to look like they’ve just spent the summer in the Bahamas sunning with cocktails on tap and those who have been, for want of a better word, tangoed. However, formulas have changed over the years and with the importance of SPF becoming more and more widely known, you never know, 2019 may just see you becoming a fan of the fake tan. Check out our product recommendations!

Top tip : Fake tan debutantes – make sure that you are well moisturised in advance to avoid a streaky look.

 

SPF (Sun Protection Factor):

We can’t stress this enough, whilst it’s important to ensure that your skin gets its daily dose of Vitamin D from outdoor exposure, applying products with Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is crucial for the protection of your skin against UV B rays. It is highly recommended that SPF is worn in summer with a minimum factor of 15 to ensure that your skin is protected – even on those overcast days.

Hair Removal

Whether you embrace it, tolerate it or loathe it, controlling hair growth in the summer can be time-consuming and repetitive. If you’re fed up of choosing between a myriad of neon disposable razors, expensive salon trips or shaving subscriptions, then this section is for you. From epilation to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), handheld devices can provide more permanent solutions to your hair removal issues. Consider it a Summer Beauty investment!

What is IPL?

IPL uses light pulses to tackle hair pigmentation, which targets hair follicles at the root, discouraging growth. It can take between 6-8 sessions to be completely hairfree, but it offers you less maintenance in the long term.
IPL can reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. Double check that IPL is suitable for your hair and skin type, as pigmentation and melanin can impact product use.

Exploring Epilation:

Epilation is the act of removing multiple hairs at once using an electrical device (referred to as an Epilator). The Braun range of epilators catches even the smallest of hairs, meaning that it is a good alternative to waxing, where you have to allow for hair growth in between sessions.

We recommend exfoliating first to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. To allow for an easier and more comfortable epilation, you can use the devices in the shower or bath.

Feet

Have your feet had a winter of hibernation in socks and tights? Now is the time to air those toes and schedule in a bit of pampering – especially if you’re planning on donning your best summer footwear. Let’s face it, summer is when you are most likely to try out those super impractical but oh so fancy wedges or go on an impromptu hike (let’s hope not in conjunction but, hey, we’ve all been there), so it’s a good time to make sure your feet are adequately cared for.

10 Cult French Pharmacy Beauty Products

THESE are the French pharmacy products you need to stock up on if you want perfect skin, according to dermatologists

Designed to suit even the most sensitive skin, these  French pharmacy skincare products are coveted by everyone from the biggest models in the biz to the experts backstage. With more uses than you’d think, these are the dermatologist-recommended staples to add to your skincare routine…

La Roche-Posay: Born in France, Recommended Worldwide

French favourite La Roche-Posay recently arrived at allbeauty. Discover the brand that’s loved by dermatologists and is suitable for all skin types.

You can buy La Roche-Posay in the UK at allbeauty with delivery available anywhere in the EEA.

Who Is La Roche-Posay?
Relatively new to the public, La Roche-Posay has actually been around for over a hundred years. However, until 2006 you couldn’t buy La Roche-Posay products in stores, they could only be sourced from your dermatologist. It didn’t take long for the brand to go global and today it’s sold in over 50 countries worldwide and used by millions. Key to the skincare formulas we see today is La Roche-Posay spring water.

Who Should Consider Using La Roche-Posay?
Everyone! But if you’re suffering from acne or blemish prone skin you’ll really love this brand. Also, anyone with sensitive skin who finds other makeup removers, moisturisers and bath products just too harsh. The whole family will love their ground-breaking sunscreen. And if you’re seeking anti-ageing products then you’ll adore their effective formulas that include Vitamin C and Retinol.

Acne Treatment: Effaclar 
La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar range is loved by acne-sufferers the world over. Recommended by dermatologists, YouTubers including Tanya Burr and Ruth Crilly have also been singing its praises for years (have a quick watch of the video below). Containing a mix of glyolic acid, salicylic acid, micronized benzoyl peroxide (an acne medication) and lipo-hydroxy acid, it boasts up to 60% improvement in just 10 days. If you suffer from blemished skin then you’ll also like Serozinc toner, a best-seller in the range.

Sensitive Skincare
Although all of La Roche-Posay products are great for sensitive skin, if you’re just looking for a range of daily use products then take a look at Toleriane. For daily moisturiser the Hydréane range is for you and also includes a BB cream.
Pigementclar range if pigmentation’s an issue for you. And La Roche-Posay sunscreen and daily skincare products ensure skin’s not irritated and is moisturised at all times.

A Little History
La Roche-Posay is a thermal spa town in France, long renowned for the healing powers of its Selenium-rich waters. In fact it was a favourite place of Napoleon, who set up a hospital there to treat his soldiers’ various skin diseases! Fast forward to the early 1900s when a treatment centre was set up. This still operates today alongside a team of dermatologists. The healing waters of La Roche-Posay have also been officially recognised by the French Academy of Medicine.

Product Development
It wasn’t until the 1970s that a French pharmacist decided to create the brand we know today. Three core values were established: safety, efficacy and simplicity. At that time the brand was developed for use only by dermatologists. Of course over the years clinical knowledge has improved and so has the range.
