The sunblocks + aftercare beauty products

Alot of ppl say, after reading my blog, they are super inspired to go swimming! Really? Hee.. Thanks ah! =p

And so, as requested by you all. What to prepare before you take that plunge into the pool?

So, starting from today, I'm going to share with you some of the things you'll need! =) Today is lesson number 1/3.

First thing first. You gotta know how to protect yourself from the harmful UV rays of the sun and the after effect of the chlorine.

So, today lesson is on beauty products! Hee.. Here are the 8 products that Teacher Jerry uses. ( Tot I must admit, sometimes I'm just so lazy to use... =p)

The sunblocks + aftercare beauty productsProduct #1: Sunplay SPF 130PA+++. This little product here is a wonder. Most sunblock on the market has a range from SPF 20-75. But this one has 130! Yes, although there are research that says your skin cant take in more than 75. Which means, anything more than 75, it's useless.

But why did they come up with 130 den? I dunnoe. I just know that I feel safer whenever I'm coaching under the sun. Because I know, I'm like 130 protected from the harmful rays. Doesnt hurt to be more protective than no protection @ all right... =)

But for the kids, they have sunblocks specially made for them(lesser SPF). So, this might not be for kids. I'm not sure. You gotta check. =) Usually you can see smthing like "Sunblocks for kids"

Product #2: Nivea Face Sun Block Whitening Cream SPF 50 PA+++. This is another very good sunblock that protect your face. It's suppose to block your face from the UV and @ the same time, it's suppose to help you whiten your face. Hey! That's like 2 in 1!! Good la!!

I dunnoe if it works. I've been using this for almost half a year. Well, at least my face doesn't look too bad. Er, I mean, tanned. Hee... =p

Oh ya! It's recommended that you apply your sunblock 30mins before entering the water so that your skin can absorb them. =)

Ok, now that you are well protected from the sun.. Let's see how to take care of urslf after swimming! Hee...

Product #3: Olay Regenerist Serum. I dun really know what this is for. It came in the box when I brought Olay total effect 7-in-1 anti aging cream. So, I just use it. =p

Product #4: Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti Aging Cream 7. I saw the advertisement that this cream has 7-in-1 anti aging. Hee... So, just buy and use it lor... The advertisement was impressive anyway. =)

Product #5: Nivea for Men Oil Control Moisturiser. Mummy always say my face is very oily. So, I went to get this Oil Control Moisturiser.. To control my oily face. Hee...

Product #6: QV Cream Repair Dry Skin. I guess the product name tells it all... =) Repair dryness of the skin. But the cream is really oily. But I think it works.

Product #7: White Musk Smooth Satin Body Lotin from The Body Shop. Another product that I use to make my skin smooth smooth like bean curd.. Hee...

Product #8: Banana Boat Aloe Vera Gel. Ah! This product is good! They say Aloe Vera is good for the skin and the hair. To prevent hair loss, I apply some of this gel on my head. I dunnoe where I heard before but it's said that Aloe Vera gel on your head can prevent hair loss. So, no harm trying... =)

And last but not least... A small treat @ times..

Face mask! This face mask was recommended by my adult student Hooi Fong. It's super watery. And I love it! =)

Tomorrow lesson will be on The Different kinds of swimming suit. Hee.. =p

P.s: All the sunblocks + beauty products are not sponsored by their respective companies. I used my own coins from the piggy bank to buy them one... =p

There are thousands of sunblocks & beauty products out there for you to choose from. Choose one that suits your skin type and most importantly, choose one that you will use! Hee...
