Stay sun aware with Lacura suncare

Aldi’s Lacura suncare range offers proven 5-star protection against the risks of sun damage. Follow our expert advice on how to stay sun aware and enjoy your summer safely.

Go High

Choose suncare products with a 5-star rating to protect from UVA radiation, associated with skin ageing. A high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) rating, 30 or above, will provide greater protection from UVB radiation.

Time it right.

Skin needs time to absorb sunscreen, so apply generously 20-30 minutes before going out. Reapply at least every 2 hours.

Seek shade.

The sun is strongest in the middle of the day, so find some shade between 11am and 3pm, especially if you are fair skinned.

Cover up.

Clothing should be your first line of defence against sun damage. Wear a hat, T-shirt and UV protective sunglasses. Don’t miss our Kids’ Summer Fashion Specialbuys, with hats, sunglasses, T-shirts and more on sale in store and online from Sunday 16 July.

Happy summer skin in 3 simple steps

  • Moisturise

    Sun dehydrates the skin, so using a good aftersun product, like Lacura Soothing Aftersun Lotion, will both replace lost moisture and strengthen the skin, helping it to recover more quickly from the effects of UV rays.
  • Don’t risk it!

    You still need sunscreen if you are exposing your skin to the sun on a cloudy day. Around 30 to 50 per cent of UV rays can still reach your skin, so it’s still possible to burn.
