The Singaporean urban lifestyle exposes our body to all sorts of environmental aggressors, and city air is polluted with fine particles, ozone and toxic gases, which makes fresh air not good for our skin at all.
With the introduction of the UV Expert Youth Shield™ Aqua Gel into my routine, which I apply after the moisturiser, I skip the application of the primer and have enhanced moisturiser and SPF coverage.
The personal choice to skip out on the primer is because on top of promising ultimate multi-skin protection and hydration, the UV Expert Youth Shield™ Aqua Gel also mattifies the texture of your skin, which renders the primer unnecessary.
These photos were taken around the same time in the morning after I’ve washed my face and have nothing applied. Although the pimple around my nose got worse, I found that my skin seems clearer and feels lighter.
Perhaps its due to the protection of the UV Expert Youth Shield™ Aqua Gel that reduces oxidative damage caused by the duo of UV (UVA and UVB rays) and pollution (Sebum peroxidation decreases by 93%), but I’ve decided that I’m keeping it in my routine for sure.
