#BEAUTY: Beat the heat

THE heat is all everyone talks about and it's no wonder given the high temperature. Sun protection is crucial as sun damage leads to not just sunburn, but long term exposure causes dark spots and premature ageing.

It's important to keep skin and eyes protected, especially in the peak hours when the sun's rays can be both glaring and burning.

Choosing the right sunscreen is important as is constant re-application if one is out and about, while large-framed sunglasses which fit comfortably and have lenses with UVA and UVB protection, ensure eyes are cocooned from the heat and glare.

Here are some options for sun protection:
