Hello, I’m a beauty blogger, and I have plenty of bad beauty habits. HAHAHA.
I never used to apply sunscreen AT ALL, but having started blogging and being exposed to the detrimental effects of not protecting my skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, I always make sure that my beauty products contain some UV blocking functions. Sunscreen has become a necessity.
However, I still have a lot more bad habits to kick, and here they are. Share with me some of your bad beauty habits too! Heehee!
Bad Habit #1
Because everyone says applying sunscreen is important, and the face gets the hit the most with pigmentation and wrinkles, I apply sunscreen only on the face. That’s a very bad habit because the sun doesn’t choose to shine only on my face! But I always forget. =P
Bad Habit #2
If I’m going to the beach or planning to hang out all day in the sun, I put sunscreen on my body. I am aware that I should be slathering it at frequent intervals, but I don’t like the feeling of having sunscreen on my body because of the oily and sticky and chalky feel! I put my sunscreen on at the beginning of the day… and (purposely) forget about it after that.
Bad Habit #3
When I do remember to apply sunscreen on my body, I apply too little. Wearing sunscreen means spending the day smelling weird and feeling gross! I hope to smell less like an oil spill by applying less, which defeats the whole objective of having constant sun protection.
Prior to this photoshoot, I had already tried the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel for a week. Lemme tell ya, I am such a BIG FAN of its light and watery texture!
One of the biggest reasons I never liked to apply sunscreen on my body was because those I had tried before always left an uncomfortably chalky finish on my body. When I scratched my skin, the sunscreen would go into my nails and make them chalky too. Eeeeeeee!!!!
Due to its watery texture, the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel applies well and gets absorbed very quickly into my skin. No need to massage round and round in circles to make my skin look less ghostly either.
The higher the SPF value, the thicker in texture a sunscreen usually is. However the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel with SPF50+ PA++++ retains its lightweight feel while providing maximum sun protection. It uses the same Aqua Rich technology found in the popular Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence which is loved by many for its cool and refreshing feel.
With this sunscreen being so light and refreshing, I no longer hesitate to reapply! Reapplication of sunscreen is just as important as putting it on in the first place, so reapply the same amount every two hours. Also, remember that sunscreens should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow the ingredients to fully bind to the skin.
♡ Watery texture
♡ Non-greasy / chalky / sticky (I have an experiment at the end of this post!)
YAY! I think Bad Habit #2 can be easily eradicated!
RARRRR!!! SO MANY MOSQUITOES!
