Spring is in full swing, and before we know it, summer’s already here! With lockdown restrictions slowly being lifted, there’s a likely chance that we’re collectively planning summer adventures under the sun (see: the beach)! Before you go all-out, remember that sun damage is still real. Having a sunscreen companion even when you’re holed up at home while working from home is a must! Make it a non-negotiable in your everyday routine.
Wearing SPF religiously helps protect the skin from intense UV rays, delays skin aging, and even decreases the appearance of hyperpigmentation. For all-day protection guarantee, don’t forget to reapply mid-day! For a beginner’s guide to sunscreen, read here.
Need some sunscreen recommendations against sun damage? Here are our top product picks for sun protection you can easily add to cart.
The NEOGEN Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen is the reformulated formula of the bestselling sunscreen from the brand. Whether you’re indoors having another hour-long Zoom meeting for work or outdoors for a catch-up lunch with friends, you’ll never miss to wear sunscreen with this lightweight, fast-absorbing, and airy variation. Best of all, this chemical sunscreen won’t leave you with a pesky white cast, great for a wide range of skin tones.
With SPF 50 PA+++, it protects skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and other environmental stressors. Formulated with rose and raspberry extracts, it nourishes and calms skin. With 20 kinds of plant extracts including acai, aloe, and avocado, these ingredients even help control sebum production, too. If you have dry skin, it’s highly recommended to layer the sunscreen over moisturizer; if you have normal to oily skin, use the sunscreen alone as a daytime moisturizer.
There’s a reason why the COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is a holy grail for so many skincare enthusiasts. Protect your skin from sun damage with this sun-shielding product against skin-threatening UVA and UVB rays. With its superstar ingredient, aloe, it’s scientifically proven to have an anti-inflammatory effect when applied to damaged skin. You’ve probably tried applying an aloe vera gel or cream to heal sunburn in the past, am I right?
This bestselling product also improves the skin’s moisture barrier while leaving skin smooth and replenished. It’s comfortable, too, without any greasy feeling, making it suitable for all skin types!
Now that we’re spending more time outdoors with things slowly starting to get back to normal, double the skin protection and put on sunscreen!
