We all dread trying on a sunscreen and seeing that weird whitish colour !

Shine bright like a diamond

Greasy sunscreens can be one of the biggest nightmares. Because unlike the white cast that could be hidden under make up, the shine always peeks through. Worst part, even the ones that claimed to be non-greasy were still greasy.

Inadequate sunscreen protection

Life maybe better with a tan but you know what isn’t fun, sun damage. Generally an SPF of 30 or higher is recommended. But another tip is to look for a broad spectrum sunscreen which will help protect against both UVA and UVB rays.

Here are some additional tips to make sure you stay completely protected:

  1. Reapply regularly: Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours, or more often if you are sweating or swimming.
  2. Consider other forms of sun protection: While a Sun cream should be one part of your sun protection routine. Wear protective clothing, such as a wide-brimmed hat and long-sleeved shirt, and seek shade during the hottest part of the day.
