I’m really pleased to announce that this summer, I am an ambassador for Ladival! If you haven’t heard, they are one of the UK’s leading family sun protection brands. This year, Ladival is also proud the official sponsor of British Tennis, aiming to encourage us all to play safer in the sun this summer. Perfect with Wimbledon and a fab summer of sport coming up, right?
As a mum of little ones, I know just how easy it is to focus on making sure they are lathered in suncream and then forgetting about myself. Rather scarily, nearly 61% of people aged 13-24 have said that they have avoided using sunscreen in order to get a better tan. That may well work but you can’t immediately tell the unknown damage to your skin that going without sunscreen can cause. It could lead to skin cancer later life as well as prematurely raging skin and sunspots. So it is so important that we all get clued up now and protect ourselves and our families from harmful UV rays.
So as of today, Ladival is launching a campaign to encourage all of us to be safer in the sun. The campaign is called the #LoveSPF Rally and it aims to encourage people to share their ‘sports selfies’ online. Then you just need to tag a friend to carry on the ‘rally’. It is an awesome campaign in several ways. You get to build awareness of wearing SPF when playing in the sun, as well as being able to just share a selfie (who doesn’t love a selfie)?! Plus, for every sports selfie online, Ladival will donate £1 to the Shunburn campaign for Teenage Cancer Trust.
So quick, get snapping outside. Here’s to a safe summer in the sun!
*sponsored as part of my ambassador role. However all opinions are my own.
Mine are too young to be ‘working on a tan’ but I’ve seen some awful photos floating around of kids with terrible burns from ineffective sun cream. It’s important to choose a good one I know!
Choosing a good sun cream is so important. I’m really fair, as are my kids, so we are all super careful, especially now that we live in the US where we have much hotter, longer summers 🙂 This sounds like a great campaign x
Sun safety is so important where children are involved and it really annoys me how some parents can be so casual about it. Sounds like this is going to be a great campaign for you to be involved with xx
I’m obsessed with putting on sun screen. My husband calls me the sun screen police because I always nag at him!
Congratulations. A great thing to be involved in. I must admit I’m very good at putting sun cream on the girls but useless at remembering myself x
Congratulations on the ambassadorship. Fab company to be involved with. Love the idea of their new campaign. I’m forever hounding family and friends about lathering up in the sun.

I forgot the suncream the other day and ended up rather burnt! I’ve learned my lesson now and am applying it every day 🙂 x
I always used to forget to use sun screen but I remember a lot more these days, espeicially with my little girl x

Congratulations! Such a good campaign to be involved in, I’m a bit strict with our sun cream as me and my girls are really fair. Can’t believe the stats! That’s quite scary xx
