Today's blog post is about protection from the sun, and how to keep your skin fair!
This is how tanned I used to be, almost 6 years ago! (And with a bad haircut too, bwahaha.)
I used to be so dark that people would mistake me for being Malay =.= Thanks to all that swimming and time spent doing outdoor activities without any sun protection!
These days, I'm much more anal about being protected about the sun, especially the most important part of my skin.. Which is my face! :X Well, you can wear long sleeved clothing and carry an umbrella to shield yourself, but most essentially, I'm never out of the house now without having applied sunscreen on my face. Even if I don't put on any makeup, I always make sure that I apply sunscreen before going out to face our bright and sunny Singaporean weather!
Prevention is always better than cure, and trust me, it is so much harder to become fairer once you're tanned, like me :(
My top tips for protecting your skin's fairness:
1. Cover up with a long sleeved cardigan and long pants if possible!
2. Avoid the sun during the hottest hours of the day, which is usually around 11AM-3PM.
3. If you know you are going to be under the sun for a prolonged period, carry an umbrella and do your best to stay out of the sun!
4. Last but most importantly, wear a good sunscreen with adequate SPF protection!
And I've just discovered an amazing sunscreen: the NEW Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++!
What's so amazing about the Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ is that it contains naturally derived extract - Chamomile ET to fight dark spots- as well as Hyaluronic Acid and Citrus Extract to hydrate & soften skin! Thus, it doesn't just protect from the sun, it helps to hydrate and whiten at the same time :D
The high SPF and PA+++ helps to provide long-lasting protection against UVA and UVB rays, and the best part is that Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ even helps to whiten and brighten the skin with usage, due to Chamomile ET that fights dark spots and freckles for a more even tone and fairer skin!
The texture of Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ is amazing. I was sold after I tried it on the back of my hand! It has a lightweight and watery texture that is easily absorbed into the skin, and doesn't feel sticky at all upon application!
I also like the light citrusy fragrance :D Smells so good!
Here's a comparison of Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ and another sunscreen that I own: you can see that the Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ has a much lighter texture with a thinner consistency! It definitely absorbs much faster, and leaves behind no greasiness or residue. It feels like nothing on my skin at all! I really love the texture very much!
Loving how Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ is gonna keep my skin protected from the sun while whitening and hydrating my skin at the same time! ❤
Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ also acts as a makeup base: makeup goes on smoothly after application, with no whitish cast or color! And here's a tip: Remember to apply the UV onto your neck and ear tips to protect against the sun ;)
Biore Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ is available in all major pharmacies and super/hypermarkets at retail selling price of $18.90.
