Hi Everyone after my first blog post on sunscreens here I’m continuing the topic of sunscreens, If you haven’t read my previous blog stop right here and click the link below.
Now that you have read and understood how were sunscreens made and to read what the SPF numbers stand for, Lets take it further on by knowing what the values of PA +++++ OR Boot Star Rating ***** mean on your Sunscreen tubes.
The UVB protection rating which signifies the percentage of protection the sunscreen gives from the UVB rays is widely known in two types of ratings in this concept the European rating which is the Boot Star ***** symbolised & the Japanese rating which is the PA+++++ Rating. Each of these Stars * or Plus + Symbols mean 20% protection from UVB, so if there are 5 Stars there is a whole 100% protection from UVB.
Now that we have this part of the concept cleared. It’s time to discuss my favourite Sunscreens available in the market today.
- Cheryl’s DermaShade SPF 30+
Boot Star Rating of 5 Stars
DermaShade comes in 2 different packagings 30+ for Normal to Oily Skin & the 50+ for Dry Skin type.
2. Kaya Skin Clinic Daily Moisturising Sunscreen Spf 30+

Sunscreens have been in the market since the world was made, okay a bit of exaggeration there but sunscreens have been a boon to society since the early ages when greeks used olive oil as a sun protection. Egyptians used Rice & Jasmine Plant extracts. Synthetic Sunscreens today have also been quite in for a few thousand years. The biggest hit at that time was a sunscreen with SPF 2. (Whoa!) We’ve come a long way haven’t we? In the last decades alone we have come up with Broad Spectrums, Water Resistant etc.
So coming back to understanding the power of your sunscreen. Lets start with the most common 3 most used words “SPF” which stands for Sun protection Factor. We all talk about how important it is and now moisturisers and foundations also have SPF in it. but what does it do and what are all the numbers SPF15, SPF30, SPF50 and so on mean?
We have 2 important Ultraviolet rays that come in contact with our skin that is the UVA and the UVB. SPF means the protection we receive from UVA. So mathematically speaking SPF 1 is equals to 15 mins of protection. which means SPF 15 would be 225mins of protection. SPF 30 is equals to 450mins of protection.

HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!! WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
You already know I’m going to go on and on about my absolute favourite product. Those of you have acne prone skin know exactly the boon that comes from an effective spot treatment.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is a lotion that is formulated with a lot of special Ingredients including salicylic acid, sulphur and alcohol. The reason why its special is because it has calamine, camphor and glycerin which will help the dried skin area to not get sensitive and soothe the skin, as some drying ingredients can take a toll on your skin’s health.
My love for it began when I went into mecca one day and saw the drying lotion also recommended on youtube by one of my favourite makeup Youtuber Jaclyn Hill, so immediately gave it a try as I was facing some terrible papular acne during the time.
Since then I noticed a visible change in my acne as I used quite regularly with my other skin care treatments.
So now How to use it?
Dip a cotton bud into the pink sand like ingredient in the bottom of the bottle. Remember never to shake the bottle and if you have let it all settle before you use it. Once you have the pink paste on your bud, apply it directly on the affected acne areas in a dotted pattern. Never double dip with the same cotton bud that would spread bacteria in and out of the bottle. Leave it overnight and you will notice a significant visual change in your acne prone skin.
If you have liked my blog and found it informative please don’t forget to give it a big like and comment any other spot treatments that you’ve been absolutely loving.
If you want to read my blog on chemical peels here’s the link. All you need to know about chemical peels 2 (Specialised Ingredients)
Please stay tuned for more exciting information and new tips.
Acid Ingredients in products that your skin will thank you for.
Not everyone is aware of the acid ingredients in Chemical Peels. Many of them have beneficial roles in making the skin look healthy although there is one common role they all share is to peel the dead skin cells which block the skins surface by breaking the bonds between the cells of the skin. By this process there is a rise in the production of new and healthy cells, which makes the skin feel over all healthier.
Since a decade chemical peels have become the hot topic in skin care because of their instant results. What a lot of people don’t know is that every peel is different, from its ingredients to its percentages.
Lets clear a few main/common names in chemical peels.
AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) & BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) are acids that come from organic sources.
Glycolic Acid – Derived from Sugarcanes
Lactic Acid – Derived from Sour Milk
Mallic Acid – Derived from Apples
Tartaric Acid – Derived from Grapes
Citric Acid – Derived from Citrus Fruits
Salicylic Acid – Derived from Willow Bark Extracts
The most common among these are
Glycolic Acid – Derived from Sugarcanes is great for ageing, mature, sun damaged skin.
Lactic Acid – Derived from Sour Milk, helps in hydrating dry skin while removing excess skin cells.
Salicylic acid – Derived from Willow Bark Extracts. This is a BHA, best for oily and acne skin types as it cleans pores by dissolving the dirt and debris.
Many of these peels are in your regular skin care products but only in very little percentages that would help your skin daily.
There are many other chemical peels in skin care which I will talk about in my next blog.
Please let me know if this little piece of information helps you and if you have any questions regarding your skin care please feel free to leave a comment below.
Please let me know if there is a peel that you absolutely love, I would love to know.
