Text: Cassandra C. Poculan

Summer is in full swing — as if you can’t already tell from the sweltering heat the minute you step outside. Despite that, one common activity across all age groups is frolicking on the beach. But it doesn’t take a trip to your favorite beach to know that your body needs protection from the adverse effects of heat. Apart from staying hydrated, you might want to get a hold of these summer products before hitting the outdoors, as suggested by these Weekend readers.

“You know it’s that time of the year when you need to cut down on your meals, book flights for outings and of course a healthy glowing skin. The three products that I can’t live without to keep me glowing within 24 hours are the Aloe Vera Soothing Gel from Watsons to cool my pores down from all that heat; Celeteque Moisturizer to provide my skin with optimum hydration with its triple moisturizing system; and Etude BB Cream SPF 50, my forever product! Very good for sun protection, so even if you only use a little, you still get adequate coverage. Summer is here and it’s time to shine! We always want to look our best this summer and for me, these three products are forever going to be in my bag this season.”

“I cannot live without my Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer. It prevents my skin from getting dry especially during very hot summer days. I also use Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel because it gives my skin the extra nourishment it needs. I apply it on my body and it makes my skin glow.”

“I’ve been a fan of Old Spice deodorant for a long time now. It gives me a fresh scent even under the scorching heat of the sun. Another product I swear by is Daikin airconditioner. It makes my body cold and my heart iced! Haha.”

“Our body’s natural protective barrier against the sun needs reliable support, and Nivea Sun Light Feel Day Sun Lotion SPF 30+ is the sun care option for me. It understands the importance of sun protection without making me suffer from that muggy feeling of thick lotion. Its ultra light and sophisticated formula is designed to feel like a daily moisturizer.”

“Summer is just right down the corner, and as expected, it brings about concerns on vacations on the beach or in panoramic landscapes amid humidity and prolonged sun exposure. The best product to live by this season is sunscreen with SPF of 15 or more as it protects you from the harmful effects of the sun and pevents sunburn as well as aging and skin cancer. The use of sunscreen is dependent on many factors like activities you plan to partake in, the weather, the length of sun exposure, sensitivity, etc. but these do not mitigate the need for use of one during the summer season. More importantly, the benefits of sunscreen in the long run is perennial so might as well take advantage of it as early as now.”
