How to choose sunscreen in 10 of the most common scenarios?

How important is sun protection? According to the Department of Environmental Protection, being exposed to the sun while the UV Index is in the orange level of severity for 30 minutes unprotected is enough to cause sunburn. When the UV Index turns purple in summer, even 15 minutes under the sun is too much for our skin to handle. Today, there are still many who people have the habit of using one single sunscreen for all scenarios such as work, hiking, and beach activities.  

As far as skincare and skin protection is concerned, using one solution for every scenario can be risky. First of all, the amount of UV ray may vary significantly depending on latitude, altitude, weather condition, and the specific environment we are in, and we should adopt the protection that is suitable for the given circumstance. 

The second reason is that sunscreens offer additional functions beside UV protection, such as hydration, repair, water resistance etc. that may be useful. For example, someone who works long hours in an air-conditioned office may require higher degree of hydration; people who sweat a lot might consider water resistance an important feature; and people with oily skin may find hydrating products a little too much for their skin. For these reasons, people should choose sunscreens that are suitable for their skin conditions and adjust for different scenarios.

Scenario1. People who work long hours in air-conditioned room while wearing makeup.

Staying in an air-conditioned room for extended period of time dehydrates the skin, whereas the low temperature disrupts sebum secretion and the skin's ability to hydrate itself. Furthermore, constriction of the blood vessel lessens oxygen delivery, which causes the skin to lose its glow and appear darkened. Hydration is of the utmost importance in this situation.

Why choose us: In addition to 8 hours of sun protection, the addition of NASHA hyaluronic acid and ceramides provides long-lasting hydration, which helps replenish moisture lost to sun exposure and keeps the skin moisturized for extended period in air-conditioned room without feeling dryness. Its refreshing texture and invisible formula make it ideal for use underneath your makeup. 

Scenario2. Looking to put on something light while going out on a day off.

It is weekend and you are looking to meet up with friends for afternoon tea or a shopping trip after a week of hard work. You wish to look presentable without putting on full makeup like you do at work, and want something that does everything.

Why choose us: Complete protection against UVB and UVA; refreshing texture that can be easily spread; the tinted version of Suncare UV Hydrating Lotion has minerals added to it to brighten skin tone and create the natural glow; can be used as toning cream; and does not transfer to other materials, making it suitable even for mask wearing. The formula uses NASHA-grade hyaluronic acid and ceramides to keep the skin hydrated for extended period of time. 

Scenario3. People with oily skin and sweaty glands who find it difficult to make sunscreens stick during summer.

Our skin secretes about 10% more sebum for every one degree rise in temperature, and for someone with oily skin, it can be very uncomfortable during summer time when temperature stays in the 30s. People with oily skin should choose their sunscreens primarily based on the form; try to avoid sunscreens in oil form such as cream, and opt for water form instead. The addition of oil control factor is an added bonus. 

Why choose us: Ultra-high sun protection rating (SPF50 PA+++) in a refreshing water form. The product contains "Alteromonas Ferment Extract," a substance derived from a marine bacteria in French Polynesia, that inhibits lipid peroxidation, and zinc oxide powder for absorption of excess oil. Meanwhile, the addition of organic licorice helps relieve UV ray irritation, keeping the wearer refreshed and free of oil burden under the sun. 

Scenario4. People with dry, oily skin.

Dry, oily skin describes someone who secretes sebum and exhibits flaking from dryness at the same time, and is a more challenging condition to manage. This condition is commonly associated with a damage of the skin barrier that renders the stratum corneum less effective at retaining moisture, causing the skin to appear dry on the surface while the sebaceous gland continues to secrete sebum. In this case, make sure to choose sunscreen that has a refreshing texture and delivers hydration, and avoid oil-based solutions as they may feel burdensome on the skin.  

Why choose us: Refreshing lotion that does not feel stuffy, oily, or leave white cast. Provides sustained broad-spectrum protection against UVB and UVA for 8 hours. Uses NASHA-grade hyaluronic acid and ceramides to keep the skin hydrated for extended period of time. 

Scenario5. People who have rosacea/atopic dermatitis and very sensitive skin.

People with rosacea or atopic dermatitis have very sensitive skin and are prone to irritation and discomfort. UV ray aggravates the irritation, and is something that must be prevented in both conditions. To block contact with unknown sources of irritation, it is recommended to choose all-physical sunscreens as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide work by forming a physical shield over the skin surface that reflects UV ray. Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, are absorbed into the skin and work by turning UV ray into harmless heat, which may cause irritation. 

Why choose us: Incorporates titanium dioxide as the physical sun protection factor and produced using hive distribution technology to achieve high SPF rating with a refreshing texture that leaves no white cast; offers 8 hours of broad-spectrum protection; and contains repairing and hydration factors such as cica, glycoin, B5, and B3, which makes it suitable for people with weaker and more sensitive skin.

Scenario6. Right after a cosmetic treatment when special care has to be taken on sun protection.

The skin is in a very fragile state right after a cosmetic treatment, and sun protection is especially important at this point. In cases where open wounds are created as part of the procedure, no sunscreen can be applied until scabs have formed, which leaves hat, umbrella, and clothing the only means of sun protection during the healing period. If there is no wound or if scabs have formed over the wound, it is recommended to choose all-physical sunscreen as the stratum corneum may still be in a fragile state.  

Why choose us: Incorporates titanium dioxide as the physical sun protection factor and produced using hive distribution technology to achieve high SPF rating with a refreshing texture that leaves no white cast; offers 8 hours of broad-spectrum protection; and contains repairing and hydration factors such as cica, glycoin, B5, and B3, which makes it suitable for people with weaker and more sensitive skin.

Scenario7. Sun protection for people born with lighter skin tone and are prone to sunburn.

Tanning is part of the skin's natural protection system against UV ray damage. People who are born with lighter skin tone have lower amount of melanin in the skin. Although these people do not tan easily, they have lower level of protection against UV ray, and are therefore prone to burn, aging, and dark spots from sun exposure. No tanning does not mean no damage. 

Why choose us: Refreshing water-based texture that offers complete protection against UVB and UVA for 8 hours; incorporates organic licorice extract that not only relieves external irritation but also achieves whitening effect; product contains "Alteromonas Ferment Extract," a substance derived from a marine bacteria in French Polynesia, that inhibits lipid peroxidation; and housed in a bottle that is easy to carry and use.

Scenario8. Looking for one sunscreen to jam into the bag that can be used by both adults and children on a family day out.

The younger the children, the thinner their skin and the weaker their protective barrier, which makes them more susceptible to irritations. Consider choosing sunscreens that cater for the irritable skin and can also be used by adults, preferably the all-physical type.

Why choose us: Incorporates all-physical protection factors produced using special hive distribution technology to deliver 8 hours of broad-spectrum protection with a refreshing texture that leaves no white cast and is safe to use; contains repairing and relief factors such as cica, glycoin, and B5 that not only protect children's fragile skin, but also relieve fatigue for adults.

Scenario9. Summer is the time for beach activities. Which sunscreen protects against tanning and sunburn?

Water activities really put sunscreens to the test, and those that do not offer some level of water resistance can be washed away easily, leaving the skin exposed to direct sun. Furthermore, sunscreens that have a heavy and oily texture are especially uncomfortable to wear under the blazing sun, which makes people reluctant to reapply later. Lastly, for the sake of marine life, we should choose ocean-friendly sunscreens for beach activities.  

Why choose us: Sport sunscreens made with all-physical protection factors such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide offer broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB and cause no pollution to the ocean. Product is made with special webbed reflection technology to achieve high level of protection while maintaining a refreshing and non-sticky texture. The water- and sweat-resistant formula passes COLIPA water resistance test, making it suitable for hiking, beach activities, and people with sweaty glands. Contains cica extract and dipotassium glycyrrhizate for repairing irritations and damages from sun exposure. 

Scenario10. Sun protection for getting glowy tans without developing burns or spots.

Pursuing a "healthy tan" look does not mean you should get sun exposure unprotected, and wearing low-SPF sunscreen alone is not enough, because we want the skin to develop tans without spots or signs of aging. Some people would also use tanning oils to help develop tan, but considering how tanning oils generally have very low SPF, a high-SPF sunscreen should be used in conjunction to prevent sunburn. 

Why choose us: Sport sunscreens made with all-physical protection factors such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide offer broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB and cause no pollution to the ocean. Product is made with special webbed reflection technology to achieve high level of protection while maintaining a refreshing and non-sticky texture. The water- and sweat-resistant formula passes COLIPA water resistance test, making it suitable for water activities and people with sweaty glands. Contains cica extract and dipotassium glycyrrhizate for repairing irritations and damages from sun exposure.
