Ramp up your skin’s defence against the sun with Astalift’s White Perfect UV Clear Solution SPF50+/PA++++.
Sunscreen is the cornerstone of any skincare regime and a daily essential. In a sundrenched tropical climate like Singapore’s, harsh UVA and UVB rays can do a lot of damage to the skin – burning it, disrupting melanin production, and contributing to pigmentation issues and premature skin ageing.
Since sunscreen is the skin’s last line of defence against outdoor and indoor UV exposure, you should invest in a high-performing one. The multi-tasking Astalift White Perfect UV Clear Solution SPF50+/ PA++++ ($72 for 30g) offers high sun protection, and has damage control, brightening and makeup benefits to boot.
Here are five ways it can help your skin.
#1 IT’S HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
UV rays, with their harmful free radicals, darken the skin and damage cells. To counter the damage, Astalift White Perfect UV Clear Solution SPF50+/PA++++ has UV Action Capsules. These burst when exposed to UV rays, saturating skin with a vitamin C derivative as well as other brightening and skinrejuvenating ingredients that help prevent pigmentation and premature skin ageing.
In other words, the sunscreen works on brightening your skin and revitalising its look while offering full protection against UV damage.
#2 IT’S A BEAUTY ESSENCE
To support your brightening regime, this multi-tasking product has Nano AMA and Nano Astaxanthin. These nanosized ingredients are said to reduce the occurrence of dark spots and rejuvenate the look of your skin, giving you a smoother, more radiant and glowing complexion.
#3 IT WORKS AS A MAKEUP BASE
Since sunscreen is usually the last step of a skincare routine, this one is designed to double as a makeup base.
Its formula smooths the skin’s surface so your foundation glides on evenly and stays put for longer. It also boasts the brand’s Light Analyzing Powder to help even out skin tone – perfect for days when you want to go makeup-free.
Sweat- and sebum-proof, it stands up to the afternoon heat and keeps your makeup looking fresh all day.
#4 IT’S A TOTAL SUN SHIELD
In addition to the high sun protection factor and PA rating, this powerful sunscreen has D-UV Guard. A UV filter, it provides an extra level of protection against UVA rays, which can cause premature skin ageing, resulting in age spots, wrinkles and the like.
Especially helpful for days when you expect to be out in the sun for an extended period.
#5 IT’S A SUN ALERT
The tube, which is compact enough to pop into a handbag, comes with a UV Sensor Cap that changes colour in the presence of intense UVA rays, alerting you that it may be time for reapplication, making it the ultimate travel companion and a daily staple.
