Worry-Free Beach Vacation With NIVEA

Thursday, August 18, 2016


Even before this writing assignment, I have been a big fan of NIVEA's sun care products. They are my go-to brand when I need a bottle of sun protection or moisturiser during my travels — there is no other brand that I'd trust more than them.

I will be entirely honest and tell you that I know no nuts about sun screen. I am the sort of girl who would dash out under the sun without any sun protection, insisting that I am doing so because I wanna get tanned. And later on, I regret my ass off when my skin becomes lobster red and painful.

It isn't true that putting sunscreen on means not getting a tan. You can still become tanned, minus the process of enduring burnt skin and having to shed your dead epidermis layer like a snake.

NIVEA SPF 50

NIVEA has recently altered the formulation to two of their products, and I brought both bottles of sunscreen lotions with me on my recent trip to Nongsa Point Marina & Resort in Batam.

What you can't see, does not mean it isn't protected.

The new and improved NIVEA Protect & Moisture Sun Lotion SPF 50 PA ++ offers both immediate sun protection and moisturising benefits in one product. Get 24-hour moisturisation with this caring sunscreen formula that contains hydrating ingredients such as Panthenol (a provitamin of B5) and Glycerin which supports your skin's protective barrier.

Its moisturising level is comparable to a body lotion and that would help to keep your skin feeling soft and hydrated all day, under the sun and even in water with its water-resistant formula!

NIVEA Sunscreen Lotions

NIVEA Protect & White Sun Lotion SPF 50 PA ++ is the next sunscreen lotion to have received an improvement in its formulation. This sunscreen is made for those looking for additional protection against darkening skin!

The double-duty lotion has upped its defence against pigmentation-causing UV rays and premature skin ageing! It also contains ingredients such as licorice extract to help lighten existing dark spots while preventing new ones from forming.

Both lotions offer an immediate and highly effective broad spectrum of sun protection with their mixture of chemical filters, absorbing UV rays and protecting our skin from sun burn.

The lotions also provide a physical UV filter, Titanium Dioxide, which forms an additional protective shield on skin and reflects UV rays, thus allowing you to enjoy your beach vacation – or in my case, time in the pool – without a worry!
