What is the skincare tips you often heard from many fabulous-looking women whether in their late twenties, thirties, forties, fifties or even sixties? One thing I often hear besides the 3-steps skincare regime (clean, tone, moisturise), is always apply sunscreen to protect our skin from the damaging UV rays and UVB rays.
Now, we often heard about UV rays, which penetrate our skin and cause premature aging. Now what about UVB rays? UVB rays cause our skin to darken and burn, combine to break down the structure of our skin, leaving it dull and lacking in elasticity. Sounds familiar? Many of us face such condition.
Now staying in Malaysia, we are blessed with sunshine all year long. However, sunglasses, umbrella or hat are simply not enough.
How many of us apply sunscreen protection diligently? And which type of suncreen lotion is sufficient to suit our needs?
Now I am sure we are all familiar with the term SPF or Sun Protection Factor, a worldwide standard for measuring the effectiveness of sunscreen. An SPF 15 sunscreen allows them to stay in the sun fifteen hours (i.e. fifteen times longer) without getting sunburn. Thus,the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen offers against UV-B.
When i think of sunscreen, a brand will come into my mind, that is Banana Boat. Yep, that is the trusted brand for many households.
Now, this Banana Boat has come up with the new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50. Yes, finally for our face! Yippee! And it's SPF50!
Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 is formulated for everyday lightweight and lasting wear, and enriched with botanical extracts of tamarind, cotton and stevia. Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested, Banana Boat products are Sun-Tested, Sun-Proven® protection against the sun’s rays. It is formulated with AvoTriplex® Technology to give better, longer-lasting protection!
Banana Boat’s AvoTriplex® Technology combines:
- Avobenzone, a powerful absorber of UVA rays which cause long-term skin damage. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin’s dermis and hypodermis layers to cause long-term harm to the skin.
- UVB absorbers to protect against the burning effects of the sun. Without proper protection, UVB rays penetrate the skin’s epidermis layer, causing it to burn within minutes, depending on your skin type.
- A photo-stabilizing agent to maintain longer-lasting sun protection without breaking down so easily.
Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 comes in 60ml units and is available at RM32.90 at all chain pharmacies, retail stores and hypermarkets.
Banana Boat sun protection lotion is distributed exclusively in Malaysia by Allbrands Global Sdn Bhd. Allbrands Global currently manages five brands which include Playtex Tampons, Asepso Antibacterial Body Soap, Brut and Denim Men’s Fragrances.
