Every time we go outdoors, most especially when we are traveling or sightseeing or doing sports even in our own town or city, we must remember to apply our sunscreen/sunblock on. This is because the sunscreen or sunblock has a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15 or more for sufficient protection from ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UBB) rays. Admittedly, we all need some sun exposure — since it is a top source of vitamin D, which helps our bodies absorb calcium for stronger, healthier bones but do you know repeated unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause skin damage, eye damage, immune system suppression, and skin cancer. Even people in their twenties can develop skin cancer.
It is said many kids get much of their lifetime sun exposure before they turn 18, so it’s important for parents to equip them and also teach them how to enjoy fun in the sun safely so that we can reduce our child’s chance of developing skin cancer.
I choose to let my daughter use the Kids Hypoallergenic Sun Protection Lotion SPF50 PA+++ (RM34.90) . It is a hypoallergenic formula that ensures gentle comfort for our little one’s sensitive skin, with two types of natural ingredients –
Portulaca Oleracea and Apple fruit extracts – to help soothe skin after sun exposure and prevent skin damage from free radicals respectively.
The Kids Hypoallergenic Sun Protection Lotion is sweat-resistant and water-resistant for up to 40 minutes, and is suitable for kids enjoying water sports or prolonged outdoor activities. Natural Portulaca Oleracea extract helps soothe your child’s skin after sun exposure, while the natural apple fruit extract has antioxidant properties that help prevent skin damage from free radicals.
The formulation is free from PABA, parabens, artificial colorant, animal derived ingredients, mineral oil and oxybenzone, is dermatologically tested and proven. The quality product ensures maximum safety and ultra sun defence.
And my daughter just likes using it… it protects her delicate skin from the sun and so her tender skin does not get burn so easily or suffer UV damage….
The Ultra Whitening Sun Protection Lotion SPF80 PA+++ (RM34.90) is specially formulated to help boost your skin’s natural radiance, while providing sun protection. The unique Melavoid™ Whitening Factor, a brightening active ingredient, helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and achieve bright and radiant skin. In addition, Hawthorn Berry extract helps soothe the skin after sun exposure.
This dermatologically tested and proven, lightweight, daily or outdoor use lotion also contains Acai Berry extract which has antioxidant properties that help protect from skin damage by free radicals. Boasting a non-greasy texture, the Korean-made product provides an instant cooling effect on the skin.
The Moisturising Lightweight Sun Protection Spray SPF50 PA++++ (RM35.90) combines multiple functions in one handy spray bottle for convenient application on-the-go. The spray, made in Japan, provides protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Furthermore, the added Acerola extract contains antioxidant properties and is rich in vitamin C, which helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, while Algae extract aids in skin moisturisation through ceramide and filaggrin. The formulation is free from PABA, parabens, artificial colorants, animal derived ingredients, mineral oil and oxybenzone, and is dermatologically tested and proven, making it comfortable for your skin.
The unique light powdery feeling provides a soft touch and helps absorb the excess sebum on your skin. Apply before makeup for a smoother, natural look. Plus, it also works as a makeup base to ensure that your look stays put all day!
The Super Defence EX Sun Protection Milk SPF115 PA+++ (RM36.90) is your one-stop solution for defence from the harmful effects of sun damage. The Nano Double Anti-UV Defence formula effectively defends and absorbs UVA and UVB rays simultaneously to protect from harmful sun damage, leaving your skin with a natural finish. It contains natural herbal extracts with strong antioxidant properties to help prevent photo ageing including the formation of fine lines, roughness and dullness. It also taps on the power of Hyaluronic Acid – the ultimate moisturiser for deep hydration, keeping your skin supple and fresh.
Having said that, I have packed my daughter’s Kids Hypoallergenic Sun Protection Lotion SPF50 PA+++ and my own Moisturising Lightweight Sun Protection Spray SPF50 PA++++ into my luggage for my upcoming trip to Korea…..
Toodles for now…..
