Born and raised in Malaysia, we are used to warm weather and hot sun. However the sun is getting angrier these days and honestly it is killing us during the days. Even when I stay indoor I also felt the heat under the UV rays (from lights etc). Hence it is absolutely a MUST for us to apply sun block every day and reapply after a few hours.
I have been applying sun block daily on myself and my lovely daughters these years. I always chose non sticky and lightweight sun blocks for the comfortable of use. When I visited my favourite pharmacy, Guardian recently, I noticed the new, affordable and fun suncare protection brand, Lip Hop. I was attracted by its fun and vibrant packaging instantly hence I decided to try it out.
Lip Hop is a new line of suncare essentials range essentials by Guardian that is dermatologically tested and proven by health and beauty expert Guardian to provide year-round protection and relief for wherever the sun shines — with innovative formulations to simultaneously benefit the skin. With most of the products are formulated and made in Korea, the Lip Hop range comprises convenient, fun and efficacious suncare solutions.
It is very important to protect our skin from the harmful UV rays as UVA can result in skin damage that increases the rate of photoageing, while UVB rays are the main culprit behind sunburn. Sun damage also makes our skin looks dull than before due to the formation of dark spots in our skin’s natural protective mechanism.
Lip Hop’s has 4 different sun care products that has innovative formulations appeal to the young and encourage the early adoption of sun protection in one’s skincare regimen from a tender age.
