Summer is fast nearing in NZ and this is the right time to start thinking about sun protection. In this post, I am introducing two products from Za that helps protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays and get a gorgeous glow with these SPFs that will save your skin this summer.
TRUE WHITE EX POWER BLOCK UV & TRUE WHITE EX PERFECT PROTECTOR
Summer time skin care is something that everyone should pay close attention to. It’s no secret that the sun has UVA and UVB rays that are extremely damaging to your skin, which makes it hard to believe that so many people ignore the damage that the sun can cause to their bodies. Sun damage causes ageing and, of course, various types of cancer and other skin issues etc. Taking appropriate summer skin care precautions is the only way to go.
How to choose sunscreens?
Choose your sun protection factor (SPF) level carefully. SPF indicates the amount of time you can stay in the sun with that particular level of sunscreen. For example, an SPF of 15 means you can stay in the sun 15 times longer than you would normally. So, for a person that begins to burn in 10 minutes, an SPF of 15 allows sun protection for 150 minutes. While using an SPF of 15 is a good start, you should use an SPF of 30 if you are planning on spending longer periods of time outdoors.
How many good sunscreens you buy – Sunscreen only works if you use it properly
Some Tips for sunscreen application
- Be sure to apply the sunscreen lotion/cream/spray on your body & face and other exposed areas atleast 30 minutes before heading outdoors.
- Apply sunscreen every two hours, regardless of the SPF level. Over time, sunscreen wears off by sweating, or patting towels etc
- Use protection on all parts of your body. Don’t forget your ears, head, hands, and feet. Use a lip balm with sun protection to guard your lips.
- Remember that cotton clothes often protect less than an SPF 15 sunscreen. Even if you have a T-shirt on, you should use sunscreen.
- Know that waterproof sunscreen may not be as waterproof as you think; after swimming or sweating, apply more.
- Use the right amount of sunscreen. Every two hours, you should apply about 30 grams. If you don’t use enough, you may as well not use any at all. Apply a little extra to vulnerable areas, such as the face.

It has a smooth matte finish, Formulated with baby powder for a light, textured, non-sticky application. Doesn’t feel heavy at all. Can be worn under makeup too. It is both waterproof and sweat proof, without any greasiness on kin! This contains Lily extract that acts as a moisturizing ingredient to keep the skin hydrated and moist all day long. I love this one and even When I am staying indoors, I apply this every single day.
Both these sunscreens are non sticky, easy to apply and dries matte. I have almost finished True white power block. I will surely repurchase this. Regarding the whitening/brightening claims – I didn’t notice any brightening/whitening effects upon including this in my skincare routine…
