Nivea teaches us the right way to apply sunscreen

These days, the scorching summer heat surely reminds (or rather, demands) us to apply copious amounts of sunscreen.

But, according to Dr. Stephan Ruppert, Director of Nivea Sun UV Protection Research, “Only very few people apply the amount recommended by the EU – around 36 grams or 6 teaspoons for an adult.”

I, myself, am guilty as charged. I am not the type of person who would apply sunscreen religiously (except for the face of course), nor the type of person who would measure the amount of sunscreen she applies.

Needless to say, it’s not just during summer that we should apply sunscreen. It should be applied every time we get exposed to the sun, protecting our skin against harmful sunrays. I know that most of us are already aware of the damaging effects of UV rays brought to our skin—from sunburn to skin cancer. Although sunburn would be an “it” thing this season, skin cancer (such as melanoma) is never “cool”. 😉

Going back, merely applying sun block won’t do you good if you’re not doing it the right way. Nivea has developed these easy-to-follow guidelines on how much you should apply your sunscreen in order to reap its full benefits of maximum sun protection.

Nivea’s rule of thumb for adults & children

Dr. Beate Uhlmann, the brains behind these guidelines, explains us how to apply the correct amount of sunscreen:

How to apply the right amount of sunscreen by NIVEA

You can’t go wrong if you use the length of your own hand to gauge the right amount. Apply twice this amount to each leg (don’t forget your feet), to your chest and stomach area, and to your back. This allows you to reap the full benefits of the sun protection factor, and you can feel safe and protected in the sun. A hand’s length of sunscreen is equivalent to about 15 sprays of Nivea Sun spray.

The length of an adult’s hand is also the basis for gauging the appropriate amount of sunscreen for children. This amount is adjusted according to their age and height and then applied to the individual body zones as described above. (more…)



On loose pants and losing weight.

Summer is the time of the year when people get body-conscious. This gave me an idea to share my “weight loss” story. 🙂

Not too long ago, I was one of those girls struggling to trim down the fat—literally. I used to weigh at most 125 lbs then, which actually falls on the normal range of my BMI (I’m about 5’4” btw). But, I was used to be slim and slender at around 110 lbs, and having a medium-large frame wouldn’t really work well with some of my extra small clothes. It was bittersweet to let them go when I gained weight.

I got really conscious especially when people started to notice that I was getting fat. I guess it’s normal for women to hanker for their own ideal version of beauty, hence being aesthetically pleasing by having a pretty face and the curves to die for.

I tried cutting down my meals into smaller proportions, but to no avail.

I was afraid to take those slimming pills, lest they might rather get me seriously sick. I tried those Chinese diet pills before, when I was young and naive, but nothing happened I believe ‘coz I was still slim then (I know, BDD much). The safest that I could try was drinking green tea or acai berry. I couldn’t say if they worked or not, since it also dawned on me to start working out whilst taking them at the same time.

Exercise—damn, this is one of the most intimidating words in the fitness dictionary. But alas, I succumbed for the sake of losing those extra inches and bulges. I started buying clothes of my present size. Of course, I hoarded for workout clothes. I was thinking about running, but Bikram yoga caught my attention. For that, I lost around 5 pounds after a couple of months of taking yoga classes.

It was so darn hard, but worth it. The heat inside the room alone made me sweat buckets. How much more when the class starts? Most of the poses were quite challenging. It was difficult to be steady for about 30-40 seconds for a single pose. But, doing so religiously made them much easier to pull off. I really liked my teachers, especially Joy who owns the place. She was very diligent enough to teach yogis again and again on how to properly do this and that.

After that, I went on for a breather (hopefully not a permanent one!), just coz it was really hard and tiring. The summer heat of 2010 was a killer in addition. Ironically, every time I finish a class, there’s this extra zing that’s added into my system which keeps me energized for the rest of the day. Perhaps, that’s how exercise works. Aside from that, Bikram yoga has helped me increase my liquid intake. Basically, I’m now more of a water person than the food one.

I still wanted to lose more. Fate brought me into a certain predicament (that is, wisdom tooth extraction) that made me lose weight further. During the healing period, it was so hard to eat, so I was forced to eat lesser than the usual. To boot, I was getting sick every now and then, mainly because of stress. Because of my illness, my weight plummeted down by almost 10 lbs!

I’m back at around 111-112 lbs. Most of my medium-sized pants are quite loose already that I hafta wear a belt whenever I don them. Of course, I won’t recommend getting sick for the sake of losing weight. I was rather alarmed when those series of unfortunate events happened. Then, I remembered one thing: I’d never got sick when I was exercising regularly.

Come summer 2011, I declared swimming as my new fitness obsession. I’ve never wanted to be thin. I simply just want to look healthy and lean. 🙂 Swimming helps me get an extra dose of energy to survive the day’s work. It also helps me maintain my weight, since I’ve been devouring like a warthog recently. I love food, and I really love to cook. Cutting them down won’t work on me like magic. But of course, eating way a lot than I’m supposed to on a daily basis (read: binging) is flat-out crazy. I only pig out on a weekly basis. 😛

Best of all, I’ve also noticed that I don’t get sick that easily and frequently, which is a very good thing! To sum up, there are really no shortcuts on losing weight. You have to work hard for it. Here’s the revelation: this has happened on the course of 2 years. 😉

Cheers to eating right and exercising regularly. It doesn’t only have to last all summer long.
