Turn up that SPF factor

It’s a well-known fact that being exposed to UV rays without protection, increases the risk of sunburn and skin cancer. As well as regular sunscreen, Debenhams, Boots and The Body have you covered with a great range of products that you can use as part of your daily beauty regime and go that one step further to offer SPF protection on top of their regular benefits.


Hats ahoy!

You don’t have to be lounging about on the beach to feel the effects of the sun on your head – If you’re out and about around Bolton and beyond, the heat can seriously get to your head. The good news is that floppy sun hats get our vote. Head to New Look, Next, River Island, H&M and Zara to check out the very best headwear the high street has to offer.


Loosen up!
