Your much-deserved holiday is coming! Here’s our guide to our top holiday health buys to help you avoid getting caught out while you’re away.

Soltan Protect & Moisturise Spray

Sun, sea and all the elements can cause your skin to dry out, potentially leaving you with flaky patches. Choose a long-lasting moisturising sun cream such as Soltan Protect & Moisturise Spray to help reduce dryness and help prevent peeling. The light formula is easily absorbed and offers a maximum five-star UVA rating too. 

Top sun care tips: 

- Always choose a sun cream with UVA and UVB protection. 

- Wear at least SPF15 to shield from burning UV rays, or for more intense sun choose SPF50.

- Be generous with sun cream – the average adult needs 2-3tbsp of sun cream per application.

- Stay out of direct sunlight when the sun is at its hottest (in the UK this is 11am-3pm).

- Protect your hair and scalp with an SPF spray and cover up with a hat.

Sunglasses

A great pair of sunnies not only make a style statement and shield your eyes from bright light, but they can help to protect your eyes from UV damage too. According to the World Health Organization up to 20% of cataracts may be caused by exposure to UV radiation so it’s essential to protect your eyes with sunglasses that protect from UV.

Boots Repel

Keeping insect repellent handy is one of the simpler ways to stay protected this summer. Unfortunately, no matter where you go, it’s often hard to avoid the menace that are mosquitos. To help reduce your chances of being bitten, use insect repellent containing DEET, and cover your arms and legs with suitable loose fitting clothing. The Soltan Protect & Repel range has a five star UVA rating to help protect against long term skin damage and provides effective protection against insects. (Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.)

Boots Pharmaceuticals Bite & Sting Relief

We’ve all been there – no matter how much repellent you put on, sometimes you still end up with a pesky insect bite. You may want to consider using a Boots Pharmaceuticals Bite & Sting cream, which relieves pain, itching and swelling and provides instant relief to irritable skin.

*Suitable for adults and children aged 2 years and over. Contains Mepyramine Maleate. Always read the label.

Travel insurance

From winter sports to a luxury cruise holiday, make sure you’re covered with the correct travel insurance. Boots offers a wide range of options, from £5.54 for a single trip policy, for peace of mind, all holiday long.
