Sun protection perfection

We’re hoping for warmer temperatures and sunshine, so let’s make sure we keep protecting our skin as we should. We love these SPFs with skin-type benefits.

*For oily, spotty skin try Eucerin Sun Oil Control Face Protection SPF50+. It’s anti-shine and has a lighter, gel texture.

*Drier complexions will soak up the sheer, hydrating protection offered by Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF50 Hydrating Shield.

*Sensitive skin? Look no further than Avène Mineral Fluid SPF50.

But don’t forget – being sun-safe is about more than just SPF – read these surprising do’s and don’ts before you hit the sun lounger this summer.

Tasty nails start here!

After months of doing your own manis, you’re probably a borderline pro now. So you’re bound to eat up the delicious new Instagram nail craze for smooth, caramel nails as much as us. Like nude nails, it’s a classic colour that doesn’t need a season to be ‘in’ – it looks good 24/7, 365 days a year. Get in on the trend with Essie ExprEssie Quick Dry Formula in Caramel Brown Nail Polish, or for a cooler caramel, choose Barry M Green Origin Nail Paint in Mushroom. And why not complete the look by rocking a new nail shape, too? You’re welcome.

Bye-bye root regrowth

Who wants the faff – or cost – of heading to the salon at the first sign of regrowth? Not us, that’s for sure! Touching up your own roots between appointments is an easy way to save on your beauty budget. So, if greys are getting you down, try L’Oreal Magic Retouch Brown Temporary Instant Grey Root Concealer Spray. Or maybe you’re a brunette who needs a brush-up? Opt for Josh Wood Colour Darker Brown Root Smudger. And for blondes with highlight regrowth, there’s Charles Worthington Instant Root Concealer Dark Blonde. Shhh, nobody will ever know…

It seems that lockdown hasn’t just led to a surge in sourdough baking – there’s also going to be a lot of other kinds of buns in the oven. Yup, a survey has found that lockdown has led to one in 10 couples planning a baby! So if you happen to already have a little bun on the way, then make sure you join Boots Parenting Club for all the expert advice you could possibly need.
