No More Sunburn | Beach Hut'ing All Year Round

The sun is playing hide and seek but it doesn't mean it's not going to damage your skin. Apply your sunblock before heading out! :)

What You Know About Sunblock:Fact or Fiction? 
1. 12 + 8 = 20, so when you put on moisturizer with SPF 12 and foundation with SPF 8, common sense tells you that you have SPF 20 on, right?


Sunblock Mathematics is even simpler than that. When mixing several products that have sun protection, the product with the highest SPF is as high as you can get. In other words, 12 + 8 = 12. Kinda cool, actually.
2. It's called SUNblock. So you only need it when it's a SUNny day. When it's cloudy, the sun isn't there anyway, right?


Unfortunately, UV rays are more powerful than that. They can penetrate clouds and bounce off pavements even on a rainy day. So when is it safe not to wear sunblock? Only when the sun stops shining. Or...only when you're staying indoors the whole day, with the blinds shut and all.
3. Sunblock and sunscreen are two words with the same exact meaning, right?


Think of them as Batman and Superman. They both do a great job of protecting us, but their ways of doing so are different. Sunscreen absorbs the UV rays and quickly deactivates the harmful ones so they can't hurt the skin. Sunblock, on the other hand, creates an invisible shield around the skin, scaring away the UV rays before they even touch the skin surface. Awesome. 
4. If you're planning to wear a long-sleeved top and jeans, skip the sunblock. I mean, we only need sunblock for the exposed parts of our body, right?


The average cotton shirt has an SPF of only about 5. That amount of SPF is too low. And unfortunately, the darker your clothes, the faster they absorb UV rays. So especially for prolonged sun exposure, you must cover your entire body with sunblock every day before getting dressed. 
5. Sunblocks are all the same, anyway. So you can buy any sunblock at all and expect it to do the work for you, right?


Assuming that all sunblocks are the same is as silly as saying everything that flies in the sky is Superman. But you know who the Superman of all sunblocks is? Beach Hut! Here's why—Beach Hut makes sure that it saves you from whatever your biggest problem with sunblock is:

Afraid no sunblock will ever be enough to protect you from the harsh summer sun?
          Say hello to Beach Hut Max 100! It's the sunblock with the highest SPF protection available!

Scared of being able to protect your skin but not your hair?
Beach Hut Hair and Scalp with SPF 20 will never let that happen.

Terrified your child's skin is too sensitive for sunblock?

Beach Hut Kids with SPF 65 has vitamins C and E which have antioxidant properties that help protect and soothe kids' sensitive skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Plus, it's hypoallergenic.

My favorite because it's not greasy or sticky!
Beach Hut Max 75++ Clear Spray Sunblock Extreme with UVA and UVB Protection. It's so easy to apply and best of all, re-applying is no fuss.

I can never get enough of sunblock. Ever since learning how bad it really is for the skin and how badly my skin will look like when I grow older, I can't help but cringe and quickly reach out for sunblock even with how sticky sometimes sunblock can be.

Good thing Beach Hut takes away the stickiness and the greasiness of applying sunscreen. It;s always a brand that is purely innovated by Filipinos. They, too, must hate how icky sunblock lotions can be. :)

BeachHut is available at all Watsons stores!

    I really loved the useful information you have provided on the myths and facts about sunscreens. I wish this product was available in India. I use Chicco's extreme sun block for my lil kid but that leaves him with an unhealthy white film and causes bumps on his skin too. Thanks for the info. I am at Do visit sometime :)
