What to Look for in Your Sunscreen

sunscreen

Just because a sunscreen has made it to the shelves of your local big box store or even to your favorite beauty supply chain does not make it safe, healthy and effective. Some sunscreens do not protect against all of the damaging rays of the sun, and others do not actually contain as much active ingredients as the bottle states. This can lead to significant sunburns and skin damage. The next time you are staring at the dozens of creams, sprays and rollers that line the sunscreen aisle, remember these for finding a great sunscreen.

Look for SPF

For good daily sun protection, you should look for sunscreens boasting an SPF of at least 15. This number means that how fast you would normally burn is multiplied by a factor of 15. However, even under harsh sunlight, SPF 30 is typically fine for most people. This is because the benefits of SPF do not get significantly higher beyond this point. Those who have already experienced skin damage or who are at very high risk of sunburn may want to use SPF 50 when in bright sunlight.

Look for UVA Protection

Older sunscreens only protected from UVB rays from the sun. Today, however, scientists have learned how much damage UVA rays can do. The listed SPF will not tell you how much the formula will protect you from UVA rays. If you check the ingredient list though, you will get a good idea as to whether the sunscreen is a safe choice. Some top ingredients for protecting against UVA rays include ecamsule, oxybenzone, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. (more…)

Gloww Collagen Capsule and Collagen Powdered Drink Review

Gloww Collagen Drink

My first encounter with Gloww was in 2012. I was pretty impressed how my skin stayed fair despite the summer trotting I did with my family back then – including a week long tour along the streets (and river – Mekong) of Vietnam and Cambodia. I was almost sure that I was going to be a notch darker since the heat of Manila was considerably more forgiving than that of Cambodia’s! Truth be told, I would’ve stayed in the hotel if it were up to me. I loved that I stayed just as fair! 🙂

Gloww Capsules

Five years since, and I am getting reacquainted with Gloww Collagen Capsules.

Gloww helps feed skin’s CLBT. CLBT being Color, Luminosity, Brightness and Transparency. Its one of a kind SKHN (Skin, Health and Nutrient) Complex reinforces collagen, detoxifies your skin, upgrades blood dissemination, shields it from unsafe UV beams and free radicals.

Gloww Capsules include these following natural ingredients: Marine Protein, Horsetail Extract ,Lycopene, Green Tea Extract, Lemon Bioflavonoids, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Vitamin C , Grape Seed Extract, Natural Betacarotene, Pine Bark Extract,Vitamin E.

Recommended dosage is 2 capsules per day for two months, and 1 capsule per day after two months.

Gloww Collagen after 2 months of use

Gloww Collagen Capsules retails for P960 per box, with 30 capsules.

Gloww Collagen Powdered Drink

When a product is already good, and am pretty satisfied in its overall benefits, I don’t exactly expect for it to go another extra mile by coming up with yet another awesome product. But this is exactly what Gloww has done and I cannot be more thrilled!  🙂

Gloww collagen drink

I initially wondered what the difference is from my old favorite Gloww capsules. Apparently, Gloww Collagen is powered by  Verisol. Verisol is a product of advanced German technology that makes the collagen more bioavailable as it is absorbed by the gut, and allows for the repair of damaged skin to be more efficient. The efficient absorption helps the skin to get the most out of your collagen.

After around two months of taking Gloww Collagen Capsules and Gloww Collagen Drink

My skin is noticeably more supple. I don’t need to slather on as much moisturizer as I used to. I’m 40 and I was wearing very light make up in this photo. Of course, I wouldn’t get caught without my brows, but on the face, no primer, just a regular BB cream (which explains the shine haha!) and lipstick. 🙂

Although I did mention that I remained fair with the constant taking of Gloww supplement, I have long corrected in my mind the misconception that it is a whitening agent. It actually is not, the skin remains fair essentially because of the detoxification action of the chemical breakdown of all the ingredients combined. It helps keep the skin sustain its youthful glow.

Gloww Collagen Drink

The recommended dosage for Gloww Collagen is 1 sachet per day. This food supplement is sold for P90 per sachet or P2,700 per box of 30 sachets.

Gloww Collagen Powdered Drink Ingredients include: Collagen hydrolysate (Verisol), mixed fruit dry flavour, citric acide anhydrous, sucralose and carmine (coloring agent)


Another undeniable and pleasant side effect of Gloww Collagen on me is the non-incidence of dry eyes. I’m not surprised, actually. Since I’ve learned that collagen helps lubricate joints and eye tissues, resulting to dry eyes prevention. “Dry eyes” has been an incessant problem that has bugged me for some years now. My years of freelancing and virtual assistant tasks have taken their toll on my poor eyes. I love that I no longer have to deal with it for as long as I’m taking my Gloww Collagen supplement.

Based on studies, after two months of continued use of Gloww Collagen, the following effects are observed:

  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Improved skin moisture
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Even after a 4week washout phase, effects are still evident.

Gloww Collagen is also BFAD approved, which for me, is a non-negotiable when I’m looking into a long-term supplement. I’ve been won over by the product from 2012, and I am even more pleased with Gloww  now that it comes in this delightfully-flavored powdered drink.
