If I had to choose one piece of skincare advice to give, it would be to wear SPF, no matter if you’re staying in or heading out on a cloudy day. Now that the skies are always blue and we find ourselves spending more time outdoors enjoying the NZ heat, you really want to make sure you’re extra generous with that SPF.
But sometimes we can still experience sunburn regardless of how much sunscreen we apply, and if you’re like many of us regretting the countless hours of sun hears some products to help cool you down after a day out in the sun.
