Taylor Swift and, of course, Nicola Roberts are just a few celebs well and truly rocking their au natural fair skin at the moment.
Whilst a subtle faux glow (when done properly) can be equally as beautiful, nothing makes you blend into the crowd like an olive, sun kissed skin tone. The best way to stand out this summer is to do the opposite of what everybody else is doing, so take a leaf out of the celebs’ book and ditch that fake tan in favour of some serious SPF!
When it comes to protecting your face, nothing prevents sun damage quite like Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage Triple Shield SPF 50 (£60). It’s perfect for under make-up, so it’s great for city breaks, but it also works just as well worn alone, meaning you can throw it in your suitcase before jetting off for a beach holiday. It protects against UVA, UVB and even Infrared-A radiation (which causes ageing in the skin) so you can rest assured that your skin is well and truly safe from the sun when you’re out and about.
Wearing a high SPF if you’re naturally fair will ensure you don’t damage your beautifully pale skin, meaning you can take a leaf out of Taylor Swift’s book and embrace it this summer! If you take extra care to look after your skin in the sun, you’ll also reduce the likelihood of developing wrinkles early, meaning you’ll stay looking younger for longer whilst all your tan-a-holic friends look ten years older than they really are!
