it was a beautiful and sunny day when I, together with fellow bloggers were on our way to Anvaya Cove (an exclusive beach resort) in Bataan. I am not really fond of waking up early, but for this one, I happily got up at 530AM to prepare myself for a day that I am sure I would enjoy.
we started the day with a sumptuous serving of lasagna for a late breakfast. I was sleepy but the food definitely jumpstarted my day!
I must admit, seminars or talks bore me...but not if it's about beauty!
she definitely has a point...why entrust your skin to someone who just pretends to be a specialist? would you undergo laser or skin peeling to somebody who claims to have the know-how on such things? or you'd go to someone who have undergone extensive study and is certified by a group of experts? i'd go to the latter, anytime!
we had lunch after and it was such a feast! my plan of dieting just flew out of the window and I just ate and ate to my heart's content. did i feel guilty afterwards? Of course not! :)
He also talked about how most women skip using sunblocks which protects the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. well, I was guilty of this in the previous years. I just hate the sticky feel of sunblocks and the way it messes up with my makeup. but I've learned my lesson, and now, I don't leave the house unprotected!
(The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ PA+++ and Ultra Sheer Complete UV Waterlight Lotion SPF 50+ PA+++ are available in leading department stores and supermarkets nationwide, with a suggested retail price of Php 509.25 and Php 460.00, respectively)
arms: 1/2 teaspoon each arm
chest: 1 teaspoon
legs: 1 teaspoon each leg
face: 1/2 teaspoon
and i thought I've been applying too much already!
Also, we must re-apply every 4hrs if needed.
Geesh, at least now we know!
it's SWIMMING time!
But as Dra. Suratos said, remember to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP and WRAP to make sure you are sun-protected and skin-cancer free:
SLIP into dry clothes that offer good protection or SLIP into some shade, especially between 10am-4pm when the sun's rays are most fierce.
SLOP on the right sunblock and don't forget to reapply as needed
SLAP on a wide-brimmed hat or a hat with a cap to protect your face from the sun as more people get sunburnt on the face and neck than any other part of the body.
WRAP yourself with a pair of sunglasses with UV-protection.
Enjoy the summer ladies!
