1. Why a Sunscreen Mist not a CREAM?
- Sunscreen is only effective when it is reapplied every 90 minutes.
- It is proven by dermatologists and scientists that sunscreen is most effective and beneficial to the skin when it is applied as the last step in your skincare/makeup routine.
- Traditional sunscreens may offer full coverage, but their rich texture sometimes leads to people applying them too sparingly to their face in fear it will be too heavy or leave white streaks. This can mean missing out on protective benefits that are vital to skin care in the long run. Luckily, SPF mists provide moisture without dislodging your foundation. It also dries quickly and easily. Plus, the experience pre, during, and post-mist application feels so good! Ultimately you find yourself reaching for it daily, reaping the benefits of suncare.
2. What are the benefits of sunscreen mist for a mum or a busy woman always on the go?
A sunscreen mist is ideal for reapplication of sunscreen throughout the day. It can be kept in your handbag to take with you when you are out and about. For example, if you are sitting outdoors at a café and are concerned, you might be at risk of getting burnt, having a non-sticky, refreshing and nourishing sunscreen mist on hand allows you to protect yourself on the go.
Why is our formula different from everyone else's?
We did not buy a recipe off the shelf; we curated our very own formula from scratch. We endured hours of testing and thousands of samples to ensure the perfect concoction.
Here are a few reasons why our sunscreen not only protects your skin but also deeply nourishes the skin's derm.
Squalane oil has numerous benefits.
- It boosts hydration, helping skin to appear more vibrant and healthier.

- Simplifies and saves time in your daily skincare routine.
- Do you know UV rays react with pollution in the air, producing free radicals which are quick to attack your skin? Our Antioxidant SPF50 mist is a double shield that works hard to protect your skin from pollution and free radicals.
- Now that sun care has become so convenient, there's no reason not to keep your skin protected from the elements all year long.
- Due to the increased frequency of individuals using SPF mists, it lowers the risk of skin cancer.
- SPF mists keep complexion even and helps protect against the visible signs of premature aging.

- This formula not only protects against UVA and UVB rays but also against blue light.
How important is Sunscreen?
A lot of people spend a lot of money on all skin care products to reduce aging skin, pigmentation, sun damage or wrinkles, based on a few really good convincing product descriptions.
What if I say that there is only one product where the product claims are proven to reduce aging skin, pigmentation, sun damage or wrinkles……..sunscreen.
Suncare is the one non-negotiable skincare product everyone should use despite their skin type. Suncare is the only skincare product that endures years of testing to prove its claims.
Wearing suncare is one of the best — and easiest — ways to protect your skin’s appearance and health at any age. When it is used regularly, sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, skin cancer and premature aging.
3. Should sunscreen be the first or the last step in your skincare/ makeup routine?
You are probably spending a lot of money on the best skin care products, but if you don't apply them in the correct order, you're not going to reap all the benefits.
To cut the confusion, "SPF is the last step to your skincare routine," explains dermatologist Dr Shreya Andric.
Dr Shreya Andric recommends the following skincare routine. Firstly, she recommends applying topical medications or prescriptions, then moving to your serums and moisturisers. Finally, your sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) seals the deal.
Overall, Sunscreen should be the final step in your skincare routine. This is because your active skincare ingredients are working to penetrate the skin layers, whereas sunscreen does not need to penetrate through – its role is to sit on top and act as its own layer of protection. Applying another skincare product on top of your SPF can make your sunscreen less effective and cause irritation and acne.

This video clearly explains how sunscreen works and why sunscreen should be applied as the last step skincare routine because of its nature.
5. Do I really need to re-apply sunscreen throughout the day?
Sunscreen should be in your daily skincare routine, year-round, not just in the summer. Snow, sand, and water all increase the need for sunscreen since they reflect the sun's rays.
If you've ever gotten sunburnt on a cloudy beach day, you're already familiar with the phenomenon. Or have you experienced sun damage from being in a corporate office with big windows or in a car all day? Sunscreen should always be reapplied at least every two hours, irrespective of the weather or where you are.
Ultraviolet rays are able to penetrate through clouds as well as window glass. People often think they spend the whole day inside but forget about that incidental sun exposure that they get from getting to and from work and heading outside for lunch.
Sunscreen is broken down by the effects of direct exposure to daylight and maybe water-resistant for a certain period of time but it is not waterproof. A sunscreen’s SPF factor is only fully effective for 2 hours after it is applied. For the best protection and to ensure you are getting the most out of your SPF, ensure you reapply.
