Heat bumps go away!

A sad fact about my life is , I suffer horribly from heat bumps in the sun. These itchy unattractive spots use to dominated my life in the summer. I had to completely cover up my skin and only dare to bare if I wanted to suffer the consequences. Heat bumps (heat rash or prickerly heat as it is also called) affect a huge percentage of our population and they mostly all suffer in silence. As a percentage of this population it sucks. I longed for the days to wear dresses in the sun and not have to worry about developing ‘The Rash’!
Last year me and my other half went on a six day trip to Marrakesh, beautiful place, fantastic people, burning sun! It set the fear into me knowing I was going to suffer badly from ‘The Rash’. So a week before I left I searched the high street long and wide for a wonder product that would save me from the Marrakesh Sun ( In reality I searched Boots and Superdrug) till at last I came across Piz Buin ALLERGY spray. Now I have always been a fan of Piz Buin sun lotion as the smell is amazing, it’s a real summery smell that lingers on your skin even hours later. So upon reading the words ‘Allergy spay’ I immediately brought it, sent my thanks to the Gods above, and called off the search.
So with my sun hat on and luggage just making it though customs (don’t ask!) we arrived in the boiling the heat of Marrakesh. We stayed there for 6 days and not once did my skin flare up. I used the sun cream religiously mind you but every spray was worth it. I totally recommend this product if you have like me sensitive skin, it did its job well, and it comes in either a cream or spray with
SPF10, 15, 30, or 50+.It also contains a anti-oxidant called Camanelle which helps your skin defend and tolerate the sun better and has UVA/UVB sun filters. All wonderful stuff for vampires like me.
I hope this helps some of you that may have a sun allergy and if you have any sun screen wonder products please let me know.

    I know a few people who swear by this – glad you're able to enjoy the sun now. x

    I should try this one next! I am allergic to regular sunscreen, so I normally use La Roche or Vichy and it works great for me.
