Q&A: Do I Need Sun Protection During The Rainy Season?

Malamig at maulan na ang panahon, but does that mean na hindi mo na kailangan ng sun protection?

We usually associate sun protection with summer when the sun’s rays are the harshest. But one of the biggest skin care myths around is that you only need sun protection during the summer.

Even during a cloudy day, you are at risk for sun damage because the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can harm your skin. Did you know that it could start causing damage within only 15 minutes of being outside?

That’s why products with SPF protection are a must-have, according to skin experts and beauty editors alike. Daily sun protection is important because:

  • The rates of skin cancer are rising and sun protection products such as sunscreen have been proven to help decrease its development.
  • It helps minimize the appearance of blotchiness and facial red veins.
  • It slows down the development of wrinkled and premature aging skin.
  • It also helps prevent skin discolorations and brown spots.

How to protect yourself from the sun’s rays with Gluta-C

So no matter what type of day it is, it’s important to protect yourself all year round. Take note of these tips:

Apply Gluta-C Kojic Plus+Lotion before going out.

It’s important that you apply sun protection of SPF15 or higher before you step outside. Whether you’ll be doing outdoor sports or just standing outside to wait for a jeep, this basic rule applies.

Apply evenly on skin.

Apply body lotion with SPF liberally and evenly to all exposed skin. This includes spots that you might usually miss, like the lips, ears, around the eyes, hands, feet and neck.

Reapply sun protection during the day.

If you plan on being outdoors for long periods, be sure to reapply lotion with SPF later during the day. Tip: use Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Powder to touch up your makeup without having to do over. This powder has sunscreen that shields your skin from the harmful effects of UVA/UVB rays.
