Your Guide to the Best Sunscreens in the Philippines

Still unsure about whether or not you should include a sunscreen in your skincare routine? This may just help you make up your mind.

What is the purpose of sunscreen?

The main purpose of a sunscreen is to protect the skin against the harmful UV rays of the sun (UVA and UVB). This is because the sun’s rays can be damaging and can lead to a lot of skin problems. It can be as simple as dark spots and fine lines or as serious as skin cancer.

Putting on a sunscreen, along with wearing a hat or using an umbrella or staying in the shade when it’s incredibly hot out, is the best way to protect your skin from both short term (sun burn) and long term damage (signs of aging, etc.).

Is sunscreen good for skin?

There’s no doubt about it: sunscreen is good for the skin. It’s often regarded as the best anti-aging product ever. But make sure you pick one up that’s been certified by your local food and drug administration.

Check out our sunscreen stories below to help you decide which one to pick.
