Although, it did came in a weird timing because until the end of march you still find yourself snuggling under the sheets because of the cold midnight breeze but, you know what they say, “all good—or should you say cold?—things come into an end.” Now, it’s the time to welcome a new season that keeps you from having a love-hate relationship with the weather—one of Philippines’ most anticipated season, “Summer!”
In preparation of the months of going out and basking under the heat of the sun, what are the things that you should prepare to keep yourself protected? Well, worry no more because, here are some of the things that are already curated for you to keep track of what you will be needing when you head out or go on a trip in one of the best holiday seasons in the country.
- Warm under the sun?
It is inevitable to not get exposed to too much sunlight that’s why you should always come in prepared with your own invisible armor to defend your skin from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, and what better product to use than your trusty brand of sunblock. Sun blocks are super affordable and accessible for everyone because almost every drug store scattered around the country has them so, storm the drug store or supermarket nearest you and grab one. You can choose on what levels of SPF you can use, the most advisable SPF level for sunblocks for tropical countries like Philippines are SPF 30+ sunblocks.
- What more? Uhm—brella?
One of the basic necessities that you should have in this scorching heat is none other than your mom’s adopted son or daughter… your half sibling—the umbrella. Make sure to always use this whenever you are heading out because it will prevent your skin from getting sunburns, triggering skin diseases, and it will also protect your skin from premature aging. Just be careful where you put this after using because it is certain that you’ll get a lot of nagging when your mother finds out that you lost one of her precious children, her umbrella.
