Skin Aqua UV Mild Gel SPF30 PA+++

You may have seen anti-pollution skincare flashing across your screen. Ever wonder why they have been gaining traction?

Name: Skin Aqua スキンアクア UV Mild Gel マイルドジェル SPF30 PA+++
Price: RM 40 for 110 g
@cosme rating: 4.7
Release date: 13.2.2016
Made in: Japan

It is all due to PM2.5 – tiny particles in the air that are two and one half microns or less in width (about thirty times smaller than that of a human hair!). They not only clog pores, but can also penetrate the epidermis layer to accelerate cellular ageing and even cause hyper-pigmentation. Crikey!

The hard-working UV Mild Gel SPF30 PA+++ is designed to address this very matter by repelling polluting particles (including the dreaded PM2.5), while defending against UV rays. The watery formula absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving no white marks or greasy residue. And as with all Skin Aqua's products, it contains a blend of hyaluronic acid, amino acids and collagen to prevent ageing.

Whatever your skin type, this day-to-day sunscreen won't lead you astray. Sold exclusively at Watsons for RM 40.
