early this week, i was being introduced to try neutrogena suncare products. neutrogena is such a popular brand that i've seen it since years ago.
neutrogena is the #1 dermatologist recommended suncare brand in USA and is one of the few brands in singapore that boasts suncare protection for both face and body.
neutrogena introduced helioplex technology that contains FDA-approved sunscreens covering the full UVA and UVB spectrum. though many sunscreens offer protection from UVA rays, this protection starts to break down when skin is exposed to the sun. helioplex prevents this from happening by stabilizing UVA protection so that even under highly intensive sunlight, i still can be assured my sun protection does its job more effectively up to 5-6 hours.
well,how to choose the right sunscreen for ourself?
it is important to make sure that the sunscreen offers long-lasting, stable protection against both UVA and UVB rays. the sun protection factor (SPF) and the PA rating measures the protection against UVA & UVB rays respectively.
sun protection factor (SPF) - is measures how long you can stay in the sun without the sunscreen before getting burned. for example - applying a sunscreen with SPF30 means it will take 30 minutes longer for your skin to get burn. SPF protection alone is not enough as it measure the protection against the sunburn caused by UVB rays only - not UVA
PA rating - a sunscreen with a PA rating means it blocks UVA rays. the more the "+" signs it has, the higher the UVA protection. protection against UVA rays is important because UVA rays have a longer wavelength and they penetrate deeper into skin, contributing to premature aging and skin cancer.
so girls, let's us keep our skin healthy by getting the right sunscreen protection. please use sunscreen daily even on the cloudy day as up to 80% of the sun's rays can penetrate into light clouds, mist and fog.
-"keep calm and love your skin"-
