Supercharged suncreams

The latest supercharged suncreams offer more than just sun protection.

For a gorgeous glow invest in a new supercharged suncream formula that can provide all the benefits of your usual SPF with a little extra.

Many of today's sun protectors also include anti-ageing properties, sun tan maximisation and anti-oxidant protection.

Defend yourself against the sun's harmful rays with Guerlain Terracotta Sun in Blonde or Brunette which combines an SPF 30 with a tan booster, or try Soltan Protect & Tan Ultra-Light Texture Suncare Spray SPF 15 which contains an innovative ingredient to stimulate your body's natural tanning production.

Ultrasun medium SPF 20 sensitive guards you against the sun and boasts tiny golden 'glimmers' which raise protection by deflecting the sun's rays and also add an attractive golden glow to the surface of the skin.

Sisley has unveiled its new Super Stick Solaire SPF 30 in colourless and tinted tan versions for this summer. The product can be used to protect areas such as lips, cheeks, eye contour, nose and forehead and the tinted version gives your face a boost of lovely sunkissed colour. It also comes in a handy size so it's perfect for applying on the go.

There's also a new wave of sun protectors that combine SPF with potent antioxidants. Check out Estée Lauder DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant & UV Defense SPF 50 which repairs existing damage and works to block free radicals.

Another revolutionary sun protector is Piz Buin's Wet Skin Transparent Sun Spray in SPF 15 and SPF 30 which can be applied to both wet and dry skin, giving a streak free finish. This means there is no need to wait till you dry off after a swim to slather it on.

Once you've spent a day soaking up the rays, it's important to protect and prolong your tan. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun reduces redness and ensures your tan lasts longer with less burn whilst hydrating your skin for 12 hours. This also smells totally tropical to give your senses a treat too. Alternatively combine the cooling factor of an aftersun with the protection of a sun screen and try Nivea's new SUN Protect & Refresh Invisible Cooling Mist. The innovative formula has menthol to naturally soothe hot skin while at the same time giving an SPF protection of 20, 30 or 50.
