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…)



Skin Care Love: Obagi Nu Derm.

Obagi Nu Derm Kit

I have always been curious about Obagi products ever since my best friend I introduced them to me years ago. She used to go to Belo Medical Group for her skincare woes, and that’s how she discovered Obagi. Amidst researching about the brand, I’ve stumbled upon lots of raves—from common people to celebrities. So, I surmised that this product seems to work, perhaps because it claims to work on the cellular level. However, the steep price tag forced my desire (as well as my wallet) to take a backseat.

I have been frustrated with my skin since time immemorial, mainly because of zits, zits and more zits—not to mention, the dullness and the visible pores. I have taken and applied various medications courtesy of my dermatologist, and I am so glad that my skin is in almost tip-top shape. Well, I still get a nasty dot here and there, but it’s not something as horrible as before I visited a skin doctor.

Come Obagi’s 11th Anniversary in the Philippines, I attended the event sans hesitation. It didn’t fail me, of course! I have learned so much more about the product, particularly on the technical side of how it actually works. What’s lovelier is that I get to try Obagi Nu Derm products, which I still religiously use alongside with my Shiseido Pureness skincare kit.

So, here’s some of Obagi Nu Derm products that I’ve tried:

Review: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Caticlan Shore, Boracay Island, PhilippinesI recently went to the beautiful island of Boracay in the Philippines for a weekend beach trip with friends. Of course, whilst the weather was a bit gloomy on the first two days of our stay, slathering on sunblock was still a must-do.

The sun may hide and the clouds may conquer the vastness of  the sky, but the killer cancer-causing UV rays won’t!

So I got to stash in Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50. This is my current fave since it is the ONLY sunblock my oily face can stand!

I must say, I wasn’t really much of a fan wearing sunblock everyday, until I met this. Sunblock tends to be too greasy on my face, causing more buildup. More buildup means more face trouble in the future–count the zits in! My second favorite is VMV Hypoallergenics Armada SPORT in SPF 70, since it belts a higher SPF. The problem is, most VMV Armadas, even at SPF 30 (the lowest SPF they have), feels greasy on my face. However, I don’t have any problem using it with the rest of my body. 😉

Going back to Netrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock, here’s my RAVE review. 😀

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Lightweight, Non-Greasy Feel

Truly, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock lives up to its name. Its lightweight formula gives a just-right matte finish. This is really perfect for those who have very oily skin and acne-sufferers like me. Though it’s not really meant for oil-control, it won’t surely cause your skin to grease a lot. You can wear it alone or under makeup, and I’m pretty confident it won’t cause any caking, streaking or buildup on your foundation.

Mild Scented, Breakout Free

I love its mild scent, unlike other sunblock that kinda smells gross–like chemical! Ah yes, just as I said earlier, it won’t cause you breakouts!  Well, as for me, it didn’t cause a single dot. So, it’s skin-friendly, and is suited for all skin types.

Also, I heard it comes in SPF 70 and even 100[!] should you want extra sun protection.

Best is: the price! 🙂 It only cost me around Php 550 (around $ 11.34).
