Digitalisation of our daily lives have indeed taken a toll upon our health — leading to a rise of fatigue and back pain. The constant usage of mobile devices such as laptops, iPads and smartphones albeit their importance in a world working towards complete globalization, has been a curse in disguise nevertheless. However, we still can’t live without them, can we? They have grown to be an all-time favourite in terms of in-house entertainment too so, this further diverges away from the hopes of reducing dependency towards technological devices. Technology exists in both work and play and this situation has ben aggravated via the pandemic.
Talking about statistics, on an average, Malaysians spend approximately 8 hours and 5 minutes a day surfing the internet. Now, here’s where it gets serious — this means that they are exposed to blue light emitted by these devices. According to scientific research, blue light from digital devices generates free radicals causing oxidative stress that accelerates skin ageing.
A prolonged exposure can have similar effects such as the sun which would subsequently lead to hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity. This fact would definitely shock many people especially, those who are extremely careful prior to going outside by wearing sunscreen. Pretty sure, the question of putting on sunscreen when using any form of technological device would arise. Well, here’s some good news!
Presenting, Sunplay’s new, Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture SPF50+ PA++++ sunscreen. Identifying the harmful effects of the UV rays, this product was specially formulated with the innovative Solarex-5 Technology which provides a high UVA/UVB protection. This would subsequently provide protection against the blue light and infrared light which would reduce the visible signs of skin aging. Now, you could use your beloved devices and focus on your work without any stress of getting your skin damaged.
Addressing the needs of the consumers, Sunplay has made their Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture SPF50+ PA++++ sunscreen into two variants — the UV Super Moisture Essence and UV Super Moisture Gel. Before moving to the differences, let’s focus on the similarities. Both variants are formulated with Snow Fungus extract that helps restore dry skin to its optimum hydration state. Adding on, both variants are also infused with Vitamin C to help brighten uneven skin tone and promote skin radiance.
Now, for the differences, the gel variant is infused with Nano Hyaluronic Acid that enables it to penetrate deeply into the skin, thereby keeping the skin hydrated all day long. However, if you have a drier skin type, it’s recommended to use the essence variant that is formulated with 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid to provide a more intense moisturising effect!
The texture of the product is water-light and it spreads easily on the skin. If you’re not a fan of thick creams due to the stickiness, then you might want to opt for this product instead. It absorbs very quickly into the skin hence, allowing the skin to feel fresh without leaving any greasy residue. Worried about your full-face makeup getting ruined due to the oil from the product? Well, fret not! Because the Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture sunscreen is also ideal to be worn under your makeup.
For the pricing, the Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Gel SPF50+ and Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Essence SPF50+, which retails at RM45.90 (80g) and RM45.90 (50g) respectively, are already available at leading pharmacies and supermarkets.
