Don’t Forget SPF!

Most of us probably grew up hearing about the importance of sunscreen but many still do not wear it. Soaking up a little sun is good for your overall well-being but too much of a good thing can be bad too. There are two types of harmful UV rays: UVA and UVB – both can cause damage to your skin.

UVA rays cause premature aging while UVB rays cause sunburns. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is generally recommended for everyday usage. 

Sunscreen should be included in everyone’s daily routine. 

Here are 5 reasons why sunscreen is important and why you should apply it everyday.

Skin cancer prevention

The UV rays radiated from the sun are carcinogenic so sunscreens are essential to prevent the formation of skin cancers. There are three types of skin cancers, namely squamous cell skin cancer, basal cell skin cancer, and melanoma. Melanoma can be lethal if left untreated. Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancers affecting Malaysians so do make it a habit to wear sunscreen every day before going outdoors.  

Prevent premature ageing

Another common condition caused by excessive exposure to the sun is premature aging. Overexposure to ultraviolet rays breaks down the skin’s elastin and collagen, thus causing the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Regular sunscreen usage will ensure that you stay youthful and radiant. 

Sunscreen is important for all skin types

Absolutely no one should forgo sunscreen application, regardless of skin colour or type. Yes, people with lighter complexions are more susceptible to skin cancers but this does not mean that people with darker complexions are immune. Sun damage is cumulative so it is important to take early preventative measures by wearing sunscreen daily. 

Sunscreen evens your skin tone 

In addition to causing wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage also causes discolouration and pigmentation to your skin. Sunscreen is an effective tool to help prevent discolouration and brown spots from forming. Spare your skin and start slathering on that sunscreen because discolouration is stubborn and difficult to get rid of. Besides, sunscreen does help to reduce the appearance of facial redness and blotches.

The ozone layer is depleting 

The ozone layer acts as a natural sun shield for the earth as it absorbs harmful ultraviolet radiation. However, the ozone layer is slowly depleting so sunscreen should be used for added protection to combat destructive UV rays.      

Frankly, the benefits of wearing sunscreen are endless. There is a wide variety of sunscreens out there for every skin type so get yourself some SPF today (and if you still don’t, what are you doing?).

Trust us, your skin will thank you in the long run. 

‘Which is more effective?’

Having body hair is a normal and natural occurrence but most people, especially women, choose to get rid of it due to hygiene or aesthetic purposes. 

There is a wide array of hair removal methods that one can use, including shaving, plucking, waxing, and laser hair removal among others.

While shaving and plucking are easier and more accessible, many opt to go for waxing and laser hair removal for longer-lasting results. 

In recent years, laser hair removal has become a more sought-after option to get rid of body hair because of its many benefits. 

Laser hair removal is a technique whereby pulses of laser light are aimed at a particular area of the body to remove the hair. With the Soft Light technology, our Permanent Hair Removal S-Light service is effective enough to even detect hair on darker skin tones and pale-coloured hair. 

1. Pain level

Laser hair removal is also considerably less painful compared to waxing. Waxing is definitely much more painful because hair is physically ripped off the skin using hot wax, whereas laser treatments only cause minimal discomfort. 

2. Side effects

The Permanent Hair Removal S-Light treatment is also completely safe and poses no side effects. Laser hair treatment is more efficient for a smoother hair removal process compared to waxing because waxing often causes ingrown hairs and is also time consuming. With laser hair removal, unwanted hair follicles will be completely destroyed, thus preventing the formation of ingrown hairs. 

3. Price point

Laser hair removal is a more cost-effective treatment as it guarantees better results in the long run compared to the waxing method.
