If you haven't been out of your house that much, you still have a few weeks to enjoy the sun. Putting your feet into the sand, lying down on a hammock while being served a cold pinacolada with an umbrella on top just looks perfect on any beach. We deserve to be pampered every once in a while, but I do worry a lot about the damage that the sun brings on our skin. I take this threat seriously because sun damage would make you look old, even make you sick if you don't believe me.
Well, there's some really good news I'd like to tell you. There's Nivea Sun to take care of your skin. It's a line of products by global brand Nivea that's dedicated to protect, refresh, hydrate, even give you a tan on some of their products. Different days, different needs, so I did the next best thing to make sure I get protected perfectly when it's hot outside. I actually tried them all in a span of 1 week, and here's a rundown on how they fared.
This is Nivea Sun Moisturizing Immediate Sun Protection Collagen Protect. If you can see, all their bottles have SPF labels on them indicating the amount of protection you get from product. It smells quite like liquid baby powder and not too strong. I don't like the other brands that smell like chemicals and doesn't even get you enough protection as you need it. It also disappears quite fast after application, meaning it's quickly absorbed by the skin. It's not greasy at all and it assures your protection from UVA/UVB rays, of which too much of it will hasten genetic mutation. If that happens, you get skin cancer. That's not a good thing. If you're out for a swim, they recommend to re-apply after a dip, or after you wipe off with a towel. I would have loved to put my swimming photos on this part, but I'm sure you're not ready for that. #UMAY haha.
This one smells a little stronger than the one in the blue bottle. This is the Nivea Sun Whitening Immediate Sun Protection Collagen Protect. It's got the same SPF content, but it's got more active whitening ingredients. So just imagine, you're not just protecting yourself from the sun when you put this on your skin, you get the moisturizer's effect plus it'll make your complexion whiter. It's like hitting three birds with one stone. You're not really protected if you're just inside the home, UVA rays can penetrate through clouds and glass. Don't trust those windows, you really can't be too sure. Get your dose of Vitamin D when it's safe, but not to the point of putting yourself out there in danger.
This one's pretty special. This is the Nivea Sun Protect and Bronze. I guess the lower SPF would hasten you to get enough of that sunlight and make melanin production a lot faster, thanks to the pro melanin plant extract on this product. You would need to apply significantly well so you still get the protection you need though, you must remember that. If you want that caramel colored skin, this would fit you nicely. You must always take note that if you spend a lot of time under the sun, you are prone to sunburn. Aside from that, over exposure can hasten skin damage and these products can get you the protection you need when it matters.
For those who would prefer an even lighter regimen if you're under the sun, the Nivea Sun Protect and Light Feel is super. It's a refreshing invisible sun mist so it's not like the lotion types to begin with. Although I don't feel greasy with the earlier bottles, this one really presented a difference. I guess you can call this the modern version of sunscreen lotions. It smells so nice too. A bottle can probably go for 6 full body applications. It really depends on where you want it covered. After coming out of the pool, or wiping yourself with a towel, just spray it on again to make sure you're covered. I know, no sunscreen can ever make sure we're 100% covered but you can do your best with these!
If you don't like lugging around bottles when you're out of town, Nivea has got Nivea Sun Protect and Moisture or Nivea Sun Protect and White Creams that can get you sunscreen protection you need. It's easier to carry around, fits right in your bag's pocket but don't let the size fool you. The thing has SPF 50, so you get the protection you need in each application. You'll enjoy your vacation without any hassle, you won't smell like chemicals too. Having fun in the sun doesn't have to be too dangerous, just protect yourself with Nivea Sun products, sit back, relax and play more! You deserve this break, enjoy time with friends and family. Nivea Sun has got you covered!
