As someone with combination skin on the greasier side, I grew up hating moisturizers and creams. I felt like I was caking up my skin with all the thick creams my mom forced me to wear, especially suncreams that left me pale as a ghost. I always wondered how women with a similar skin type as me wore sunscreen 365 days a year when I couldn’t even last 2 hours with one. Forget sun cream, the answer was simple: sun gel.
If you’re a little unfamiliar with the concept of wearing sunscreen 365 days a year, allow me to inform you. The sun reaches our skin in two harmful ways: Ultraviolet A rays (UVA) and Ultraviolet B rays (UVB). UV rays emitted from the sun are harmful towards our skin because they can cause dark spots, oxidative stress, skin cancer, and ultimately lead to premature wrinkling. Sunscreens are the number one effective way to prevent signs of premature aging, and protect skin’s overall health!
Make P:rem’s Capsule Sun Gel is a high SPF 50+ sun protectant with a lightweight, serum-like texture. Within the first pump, a semi-clear serum comes out, but do not be deceived! This sunscreen will not leave unblended white streaks or clog pores like most other greasy sun creams. After blending the product with my finger I noticed that immediately, the cloudy liquid became invisible! It absorbed quickly into my skin and left it feeling cooler, which is perfect in the summer under the blazing sun.
Like most K-beauty skincare products, all the ingredients of the Make P:rem Capsule Sun Gel naturally and innovatively deliver astonishing results. This chemical sunscreen includes Homosalate and Octocrylene which are ingredients that protect against UVB rays and Ethylhexyl Salicylate which protects skin against UVA rays. The UVA and UVB protective ingredients are encapsulated and suspended in a clear, lightweight gel serum, providing excellent sun protection in the easiest format ever.
It is essential to wear sunscreen 365 days a year because these rays are present all year long, even on the cloudiest of days. If you plan on staying under the shade all day, surprisingly you are still at risk of unprotected exposure to UV rays because they can always sneak around and reflect off of concrete.The best part of the Capsule Sun Gel is that one drop goes a long way, and the entire bottle can last you for the good part of the summer season. Always, always, always wear sunscreen, even if you have combination oily skin like me since there is now the perfect sunscreen for you!
Get your glow on,
