Beat the sun!


Start your sun-protected life with one spray
Worry not because protecting your skin from harmful UV rays doesn’t mean putting up with sticky sunscreen on your body every morning.

Sweat-proof and waterproof, this ultra-lightweight sunscreen boasts of a super fine and non-greasy formulation with sebum-absorbing powder, leaving the skin feeling comfortable with a powdery matte finish. Biore UV Perfect Spray offers Superior Double UV Block with SPF 50+ and PA++++ to protect the skin from UVB rays that cause dark spots, freckles, and sunburn, and from UVA rays that cause premature aging.

Advocacy for sun protection
Daylong, a dermatological suncare brand, advocates daily sunscreen application. It conducted a UV-exposure study to investigate whether the outdoor sun at the beach shows the same level of strength in the city even when indoors.

The study showed that in Metro Manila, the daily UV Index recorded reaches up to 10 from 12 noon to 1 p.m., which places a “Very High” risk from unprotected sun exposure.

Comparing the city’s UV index to Caticlan (Boracay) and El Nido (Palawan), and data showed both summer destinations also reach UV Index 10 during the same hours.

Daylong also found out that despite staying indoors, the women registered UV readings.

Whether clear or cloudy weather, UV solar radiation remains strong, and it can penetrate windows. Indoor light sources, even at night, have also been revealed to contribute to UV exposure.
