Happy Summer Holidays from Sydney!
For us, Christmas is all about the sun, sand, salty skin, BBQ’s at the beach and swimming until the sun sets.
Although the Aussie summer heat and sunshine comes with a cost to our skin. The UV index here in Sydney is usually in the “extreme” UV category which means we must protect ourselves from the harmful cancer producing UV rays.
SPF 30+ sunscreen is a necessity, especially for our little ones and these days we’re lucky that we have a number of organic and natural products available so we don’t need to add any extra harm to our skin or the environment.
We also take shelter from the sun between the hours of 12 and 3, these are our hottest hours and have the highest risk of getting burnt. If fact if you’re in the direct sun at that time you’re likely to get sun damage of some kind, the Ozone layer is thinner above Australia than it is in most of the globe and anyone who lives or has been here knows that it is harsh!
So stay safe this holiday season and we wish you an amazing Christmas, wherever you are in the world!
