Y.O.U. Beauty Sunscreen

Y.O.U. Beauty Sunbrella Series—the perfect sunscreen for all skin types

Y.O.U. Beauty is a brand that is aware that due to our climate, Asians, particularly those from Southeast Asia, are prone to acne and oiliness. With these conditions in mind, they developed a skincare range for those with oily, combination, and sensitive skin. One of these is the Y.O.U. Beauty Sunbrella Series—four sunscreen varieties, each having a unique purpose. 

If your skin is oily to normal, you can choose the Triple UV Elixir Sunscreen or Airy Outdoor Sunscreen Spray. On normal to dry skin, the latter is also effective; as a substitute, you can use Tone Up UV Elixir Sunscreen. Then for those with a dry to sensitive skin type, Intensive Care Aqua Sunscreen is the best choice. 

Even on overcast day, we recommend to always apply sunscreen since clouds can only filter a small amout of UV rays. So, even if it’s overcast or raining, UV rays can still reach your skin and cause damage.

Maybelline Super Stay Lumi Matte Foundation

Made with light-wear technology, its formula is extremely breathable, lightweight, and ensures comfortable wear throughout the day. A small amount goes a long way and it leaves the skin with a matte finish with a subtle, diffused glow, making it suitable for unpredicatable weather since it won’t leave you looking too oily or too dry.

Want a long-lasting lip product that will last all day but won’t dry out your lips? We recommend Issy’s Gelée Lip Tint that offers color pay-off, longer wear, less reapplication, and doesn’t transfer as easily as lipstick or lip gloss. It leaves the lips juicy and supple and unlike most stains it doesn’t seep into creases to avoid looking patchy.
