UVA / UVB Skin Protectors – London Marathon 2013

Last Sunday, once again tens of thousands of runners took part in the 33rd London Marathon. With record of 700,000 spectator and nearly 40,000 runners. As Prince Harry said: missing London Marathon was ‘never an option’ and support needed even more after Boston bombings. 30 seconds silence has been held in honour of the victims before all runners began.

London Marathon is one of the most famous race in the world. It is always great energy and enthusiasm and the crowd seemed even bigger and louder than last year.

Its the Event which brings people together regardless of race, gender, religion, nationality, age ( Iva Barr 85 years old was the oldest runner and she has few Marathons under her belt – you go Girl! ) etc. …

So let’s keep running and support who needs a support…

As skin care expert; I would always think to protect the skin and search for a perfect skin care protection solution. You are protecting the skin against UV exposure and against environmental damage.

I still come across through my work which many men and women raise a question about SPF and if it is necessary.

Guys, IT IS! Don’t think, just Get one! No joke anymore. We All need Environmental Shield Day Cream. ( And, Environmental Shield Day Regime… I will discuss this another time and more often Day Skin care regime recommendations becomes customized. Through individual consultation and an exercise that will assist us in determining what your individual skin care needs might be… )

So, think of buying SKin care protector’ as investment. Initially, the product might be more ££ than you want to spend but the Skin will thank you for it on the long run… For Sport fanatics who like to train outdoors, in summers and winters ( skiing, cross-country ski marathon  – well done to Pippa Middleton at Haute Route recently… )  sun defense SPF must!

So, before we start running, cycling, hiking/trekking, mountaineering, choose from these amazing SPF face protectors.
