I cannot stress enough how important skincare is for me—so much so, that I really try to influence my loved ones to never forget to follow their skincare routines everyday. And if they’re too lazy to commit to it, at least just do the one thing that will protect their skin from the sun—and that’s to wear sun protection! You can skip washing your hair and face, or applying toner—just don’t ever leave the house without applying sunscreen!
Not everyone is aware of this, but did you know that the sun isn’t the only thing that can damage our skin? Our skin is the natural protective barrier from the external environment, and two main factors that damage it are the sun and pollution. Prolonged and excessive exposure to the sun can lead to skin darkening, aging, and even cancer while pollutants can trigger oxidation and damage to skin cells.
Most skincare products in the market usually only prevent sun damage, and it’s not common to find products that give you protection from both the sun and urban aggressors (like pollution). So when Vaseline sent over their new Healthy White Sun + Pollution Protection, I was very grateful! It’s the kind of product that fits the lifestyle of modern girls and make our skin city-ready, because it contains Glycerin, which is a natural hydrating substance that provides moisturization, Niacinamide, which helps maintain fair and radiant skin, Petroleum Jelly, which traps moisture and acts as a protective barrier from any skin-damaging matter, and Vitamin E Extract, which plays a major role in the anti-aging process of our skin.
It also has PPF or Pollution Protection Formula, which protects your skin from urban aggressors by promoting a healthier skin barrier through moisturization. It addresses pollution in two ways: neutralizing and blocking pollution.
This is definitely perfect for girls like me who are constantly on-the-go—be it going to the office, attending an event, or even going on quick beach trips during weekends! I never have to worry about my skin not getting enough protection, because while my face is forever protected by my favorite sunblock, the rest of my body can give a huge sigh of relief thanks to the new Vaseline Healthy White Sun + Pollution Protection.
