Selecting the right sunscreen + recommendations


I know I’ve  blogged about this umpteen times but lest we take it for granted. It’s good to remember that sun protection is very important. Especially if you are heading out for some fun in the sun.

Or even if you are not and you would just be staying indoors at work or in the shopping malls. You should also remember to put on your sunscreen diligently as even though UVB is blocked by the glass windows but UVA can still reach you through the indoor lighting.

You should always get a sunscreen that would suit your needs. so what do we look for when shopping for me.

Firstly, we should take note of the terms used. Like SPF, it refers to Sun Protection Factor. Usually, you can do a rough estimation of how much SPF you need by multiplying it by 10.

Example : SPF 30 x 10 = 300 minutes of sun (5 hours)

However, that is taking in if you do not perspire  or are in the water. That is why it’s always recommended that you re-apply your sunscreen every 30 minutes if you are participating in outdoor activities.

In fact, even when you are indoors, your sunscreen could also be rubbed off by your clothing or hands. Hence, if you can, do re-apply every 1-2 hours.

Currently, the sunscreen in my makeup pouch is the one from BEBECO. Continue reading

Thanks to Bebeco, I was given a number of products to try out. I told them about my skin concerns; blackheads, uneven skin tone and dryness on the cheeks. And I was introduced to this skincare regime which is like a DIY Facial Routine. Something one can try at home and save money at the same time instead of splurging hundreds at facial salons.
