I used to be a teacher – if I’m not in the staffroom, I’m in a classroom, seminar room or a lecture theatre. The only time I’m exposed to any direct sunlight is probably during the 7+am flag-raising ceremony and being a college teacher, I work late and don’t see much of the sun when I’m heading home. Back then, I didn’t bother or dabble with any sunblock or UV whitening products. Why bother? I was young and I had great skin.
Then I got married and had children. I’m in the sun a lot – more than I’ve ever been in my life! I bring my girl to school and back in the hottest possible time of the day and the kids love going to parks and the outdoors.
The 10 signs of dull and sun damage skin are:
Surprise, surprise! I score 6/10 here! The skin on my shin is particularly flaky, itchy and uneven and the skin on my arms looks dull and stressed.
To say that it’s time to pay more attention to my skin before it deteriorates further is an understatement – and I believe mums neglecting their skin after having kids is a common predicament.
But neither time nor age is forgiving, and that’s why I decided to try NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum with SPF25 to moisturize, improve my dull and sun-damaged skin and protect it from UV rays. Well, I make the effort to protect my face from the sun by applying a BB cream that comes with sunblock so I ought to do something for my body too, right?
I’m very particular when it comes to applying stuff on my body because I have sensitive skin and I generally dislike lotions that leave a sticky after-feel or residue after application.
Fortunately, NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum doesn’t leave an icky feel and even in our super warm and humid weather (it smells pretty good too!), I don’t feel uncomfortable after applying the serum. Perhaps it’s because it’s lightweight, rather fluid and gets absorbed quickly:
NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum is enriched with natural Vitamin C from Camu Camu and 95% Pure Vitamin C (a powerful anti-oxidant which lightens skin naturally) to penetrate deeply to repair and restore accumulated sun- damaged skin cells, and lighten dull and dark skin.
At just $9.55, NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum with SPF25 enables users to achieve visibly fairer, smoother and more radiant skin within 14 days! I will be trying the serum out and embarking on the 14-day efficacy user experience.
