On Trend: Six of the best SPF sprays for easy but effective sun protection

By Katie Wright, PA Fashion and Beauty Editor

Just spray and go with these aerosol sunblocks, says Katie Wright.

Whether on holiday or at home, we all know we should be protecting our skin from harmful UV rays with a high-factor sunscreen, especially during the summer, when UVB rays (the kind that cause sunburn) are strongest.

Yet we’re all guilty – let’s be honest – of sometimes skipping the SPF, because we ‘haven’t got time’, or failing to apply it properly because we don’t want to end up covered in greasy residue.

Not all sunblocks are created equal, however. If you’re ready to wash your hands (literally) of thick lotions, a lightweight SPF mist may be the answer. Take the stress out of sunscreen with these easy to use aerosols…
