With the summer at its peak in the Northern Hemisphere and on the horizon for us down under, we can all agree we are looking forward to warm days spent having fun in the sun at the beach or the park making the most of the beautiful weather. However, it is critical during summer more than ever to remember to protect your skin from the damaging impacts the sun can have. Here are our sun safety tips.
As you may know Eco Tan & Eco By Sonya Driver were pioneered after Sonya Driver’s sister was diagnosed with a melanoma at only 30 years of age & Sonya wanted a safe sunless tanning alternative. Sun safety is at the very heart of what we do here at Eco Tan and what we try to achieve every day.
Although, London was a rocky start. After 3 flights and almost 24 hours of flying, the last thing we were expecting was to be in a car accident. We were just driving out of Heathrow airport, we slammed on the brakes only to land in the back of a car and have a black cab land in the back of us. With both air bags deployed and one of them hitting Sonya in the face. Leaving her battered and bruised. We were shocked to say the least.
The worst part was having to wait another 3 hours on the side of the highway. Especially in the London temperatures we weren’t yet used to in order for the insurance company to come and pick us up.
After this chaos subsided it was 3am in the morning and that’s when the jet lag hit us hard! We found ourselves sitting in our pyjama’s at a 24 hour cafe two mornings in a row. We ordered scrambled eggs while the people next to us stumbled in from the local night club and ordered shots!
But all in all it was a wonderful experience where we finally got to meet fans of Eco Tan and Eco by Sonya.
This Tuesday, some of our very lucky staff members got to spend the day “working” on the set of the Firefighters Calendar Australia shoot for next years calendar!
Starting the day bright and early we had to make our way to Mount Nathan to meet some firefighters for the Firefighters Calendar Australia shoot… We thought we reached our destination! Oops! We ended up in someone’s house before realising that we were in the wrong spot!
Not to worry, the day was soon saved when we re-grouped and it wasn’t all bad… we walked onto the set to find this:
Our Organic Personal Outdoor Spray is not only made with all natural and organic ingredients, but it can be used on skin and it really WORKS to keep the bugs away and allow you to enjoy the great outdoors!
More than just plugging our organic natural pest solution we also want to educate you on the toxic perils of more traditional sprays, DEET in particular.
