In the past years I have been taking care of my skin more and more. I am paying more attention to my skincare routines, and being more and more consistent about sticking with them. As I am already past my mid-20s, I am glad I started the skincare journey a few years ago. Time passes my quickly and it’s important to take anti-aging precautions. The most important step – very crucial – is sun protection. No matter how many anti-aging products you put on your face, it’s all pointless without applying sun protection. A study even showed that applying sunscreen can reverse signs of aging.
I have been diligently applying sunscreen on my face & neck for the past 3 years or so, no matter the weather or season. That being said, once that warm and sunny weather came, I went looking for sunscreen in spray form. I found one in Thailand before, but I felt that it was still too milky and not misty enough. I was over the moon when my local supermarket stocked on such goodies!
The first sunscreen on the go I got was a small one, especially for the face. I was looking for something light, misty (not milky), that I can easily reapply throughout the day. This is especially great when you are out in the sun and your are sweating. I would have to apply creamy sunscreen all over my sweaty face – it would be a mess. Spraying is much easier and this is one must have in my bag. It has SPF50, so that is the best!
Body sunscreen spray
I was still looking for a sunscreen spray for the body, that I can also apply easily without the mess of a milky/creamy sunscreen. I did not find something like that in my supermarket, so when I was in Taiwan, I stocked up on a Japanese sunscreen spray. It smells great, very easy to apply, refreshing, and adorable packaging! This is my favorite to apply in summer, when it’s very warm and I don’t have the patience of applying traditional sunscreen.
Hand cream with SPF
This is one thing that I have been searching for. I don’t want to carry around traditional sunscreen that can be too heavy for summer days. I also didn’t want to smell of traditional sunscreen, like I am just heading to the beach. I noticed this hand cream at Rituals during my last shopping spree. The skincare addict inside of me screamed with joy when I saw hand cream with SPF. It doesn’t have much – just 15 SPF – but this is better than nothing! Even if I am a fan of sunscreen spray, I can manage this hand cream. Especially because it smells fresh and it’s quite light.
