Anyika Onuora is a sprinter who has competed for Britain in the 100, 200 and 400 metres, as well as the 4×100 metres relay and 4x400 metres relay. She won a Gold medal as part of the 4x100 metres relay at 2014 European Athletics Championships and a World Championship Bronze medal in 2015. Her best achievements have been winning an individual Bronze medal in the 400 metres in 2016 and relay Gold in the 4x400 metres relay at the European Championships. This was followed by an Olympic Bronze medal in the 4x400 metres relay in 2018. She took time out to tell us about the beauty product she cannot live without. 

I first discovered Unsun Cosmetics Sunscreen when I was doing some extensive research on sunscreen that caters particularly for black skin. Over the years, I had previously used different brands but they tend to leave white marks or my skin felt dry after application. So when I discovered Unsun Cosmetics Sunscreen it was the perfect match

I’m out of the country for most of the year at Warm Weather Training Camps or performing at Championships all over the world, most of which are in hot climates. I train hard and look after my body, so why can’t the same rules apply for my skin? It’s just as important.

I use it most days and love that the sunscreen is all natural, lightweight and blends into my skin without any white residue or marks. Sometimes I’ll wear it without makeup as even without foundation, it still complements my skin and gives me a nice glow.

My skin is also sensitive so with it being chemical-free, it doesn’t have any reaction as it had done with other brands of sunscreen. Now we’re in the summer months, I keep a bottle in my training, competition and handbag.
