When the sun comes out to play, so do we. Yes, this means being out in the garden, family BBQs and sunny strolls but it also means we need to take extra caution against sun damage. The best way? Find a broad-spectrum sunscreen that you’ll actually apply (and reapply) every day.

May is Melanoma Awareness month, which was created to save lives by educating the public about skin cancer. Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer with over 1,000 cases of melanoma being diagnosed in Ireland each year. This is why its so important to wear SPF every day. Yes, even in Ireland! To make applying your SPF that little bit easier, IMAGE Skincare are here to help you choose the one that suits your skin best.
