Most people have this misconception that sun protection products are needed only when you intend to spend an extended period of time in the sun.
Are you one of them?
My own Mr Mode is.
It’s mainly because he got ‘sunscreen’ mixed up with ‘sunblock’. Many people use these terms interchangeably since they essentially provide protection against the sun, but they are in fact pretty different!
Sunblock Or Sunscreen?
Sunblock is the thick, opaque cream you see people lather on their bodies. Because they are designed to physically block the sun from entering the covered area of the skin, the thick consistency makes blending harder and makes your skin turn a shade or two whiter.
Sunscreen, on the other hand, is similar to a lotion in consistency. They are designed to filter UV rays from the sun and are much less visible. The lighter consistency makes it convenient and comfortable to wear on a daily basis. Sunscreens have a fairly broad range of UVA and UVB protection, and tend to be less irritating to the skin.
I try to avoid applying sunblock on my face coz I usually break out from that. So when I go to the beach or anywhere with little shelter, I’ll have sunblock on my body and sunscreen on my face.
The EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF55 is my new favorite sunscreen because it has such a high SPF yet feels so lightweight on the skin and does not leave a white cast!
(Sorry, can't see the bottle coz of the reflective surface! Heehee.)
What Is SPF?
If you've ever wondered what the SPF number on your sunscreen bottle means, it stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF is a measurement of a sunscreen's effect against UVB rays and the amount of time you can be in the sun before burning.
So if you burn after staying 10 minutes in the sun, you multiply it with the SPF number on the bottle.
You don’t have to conduct your own experiment by staying out in the sun to test how long it will take to burn your skin, of course! Lol! Just take note that if you are fair-skinned or are at high risk for skin cancer (probably hereditary), you may want to go higher. The higher a sunscreen's SPF rating, the longer it protects against sun exposure.
The EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion contains SPF 55, which allows me to stay in the sun for up to 550 minutes without burning. 550 minutes = 9 hours. (Nobody stays in the sun for THAT long right???)
High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF55
With the EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF 55 on your skin, you will have sufficient protection from UVA (long-waves – causes skin aging and wrinkling) and UVB rays (short-waves – causes burning and damaging). Both UVA and UVB rays can lead to skin cancer.
I Don’t Need Sunscreen If It’s Not Sunny = Wrong!
Most of us apply sunscreen only for a day at the beach or pool. But regardless of whether sunburn occurs or not, and whether it’s summer or winter, the sun is up there 365 days a year, so we need protection all year round!
Remember to apply sunscreen even on cold and cloudy days! Even when it's cloudy outside, you can still get sunburn through cloud cover.
I Don’t Need Sunscreen If I Stay Indoors = Wrong!
UVA penetrates glass, so even when you’re in your car, it’s almost the same as being directly in the sun.
Even if you are indoors, chances are there’s a UVA wave heading for your epidermis. There’s reflection from your TV, pool, table, snow (lucky you!), etc. UVA has a longer wavelength, travels through glass and damages collagen, speeding up the aging process.
All Sunscreens Are The Same = Wrong!
Besides the difference in SPF values, some sunscreens might feel heavy or greasy on the skin, and might even break you out.
If you skipped sunscreen because you didn’t like how it feels on your skin, there’s HOPE!
EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF 55 feels so lightweight on the skin and is non-greasy and my sensitive skin did not break out from it. It is also very easy to blend out and does not leave any white cast.
The STAR ingredient of EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF 55 is the Radiant-Gene Activator, a potent complex of Sakura Leaf Extract and Lipo-Vitamin C which lightens your skin cells so you get fairer and more radiant skin WHILE protecting it from the sun! Talk about multi-tasking! 🙂
The EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF55 doubles up as a skin lightener too!
Whiten While You Protect With SPF 55
With regular use of the EVERSOFT sunscreen lotion, you will see a brighter and more balanced complexion. It helps to optimize the look of skin that lacks radiance, with the Radiant-Gene Activator, promoting an impressively uniform skintone.
As sunscreens wear off after a few hours, it is essential to reapply. The EVERSOFT sunscreen lotion comes in a sleek, little white bottle that is convenient to have in your bag.
EVERSOFT White Perfect White BB Cream SPF 35
Another product I love in the EVERSOFT White range is the Perfect White BB Cream. Its lightweight texture and light coverage without leaving a weird grey cast with a lot of BB creams won me over. <3 I apply this as a makeup base and when I need more coverage, which is almost every time, I'll layer on a thin layer of foundation.
Remember that sunburn isn’t the only side effect from an overexposure to harmful UV rays. Other serious health problems can arise from sun exposure, including premature aging of the skin, eye damage such as cataracts, suppression of the immune system, and even skin cancer.
So please do take care of your skin by giving it the love it deserves!
