Applying sunscreen shouldn’t feel like hard work. Biore introduces two improved formulas that feel so good on your skin, you’ll want to wear them every day.
Ultraviolet (UV) protection is a must when you live in year-round-sunny Singapore. After all, UV rays are one of the leading causes of skin ageing.
If you’re looking to combat signs of ageing, such as dullness, dryness, fine lines and dark spots, you should make sunscreen a part of your everyday skincare routine. Also, as it wears off during the day (especially if you’re active or perspire a lot), it’s important to remember to reapply it often.
Despite all this, some of us still skip the sunscreen because it may leave a whitish cast and has a dry, powdery texture. To address this, Biore has come up with improved formulations for two of its most popular sunscreens: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+/PA++++ ($18.90 for 50ml), which is meant for the face, and Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF50+/ PA++++ ($18.90 for 90ml), which can be used for both face and body. Now, you no longer have any excuse to avoid wearing sunscreen. Here’s why:
1. They provide longer-lasting UV protection They may be waterbased, but both formulas are now even more resistant to water and perspiration. This means the products remain on skin for longer, saving you the hassle of reapplying multiple times.
The SPF50+ in both blocks UVB rays that cause dark spots, freckles and sunburn, while the PA++++ provides maximum protection against skinageing UVA rays.
2. They feel cool and comfortable Suitable for all skin types, both products boast gentle, allergy-tested formulas with a water-like consistency that’s easily absorbed by skin, leaving an invisible, weightless finish (read: no sticky or greasy residue). Removing them is simple – just use makeup remover or regular face cleanser.
Bonus: They both have unique Aqua Micro Capsules that release moisture upon application, leaving your skin feeling hydrated, cool and fresh, while the mild, fruity fragrance is oh-so refreshing.
3. They hydrate skin and act as a makeup base Both contain moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, royal jelly extract and citrus extracts to keep your skin hydrated and healthy-looking. Plus, they also double as makeup base. For a brightening effect, use the Watery Gel which leaves an iridescent veil on skin.
