The first month of the year passed by in a blink and I am standing right here questioning “What just happened?”. Time is literally flying with the speed of light. Did you notice that too? If you have not then, maybe anxiety has struck me hard. Nevermind, there is however one thing that you might have noticed as well. Winter is acting weirdly drunk and it won’t just leave us alone. It is February and I feel that the dry season has just arrived and it is not ready to bid adieu anytime soon. We cannot drive it away and certainly the matter is not in our hands. We have to wait it out to pass. While we are sitting and twiddling our thumbs, we can get prepared to fight Sun Damage because summer is going to show up faster than you think it would be. Things tend to happen way faster when it is the least expected, in my opinion. You may feel the scorching heat penetrating through your skin even tomorrow. The climate is changing every second and with the rise in pollution, the environment is adapting and evolving. Obviously, the prediction algorithms are not evolving at the same pace. The need of the hour is to put our best foot forward and be prepared for every skin problem that we might encounter in our day-to-day life. Luckily, this year is going to see a very high rise in beauty brands. The beauty and skin care industry is so hell-bent to provide us with armor against all sorts of skin scavenging. We should make the most out of this opportunity and muster with the skin care products to fight against further skin damage.
Would you not admit, if I say that we are spotting a new brand every day. Every day, a brand is born which claims to provide all-around protection to your skin starting from sun damage to pollution. We often get overwhelmed with all these fancy brands and in the end, we do not know which brand to trust. This is downright true and there is no disagreement in this. However, I have found this brand which provides unique solutions to all your skin care needs. Even the parts of your body which are often overlooked. I have talked about this brand quite a few times now and I have all praises for each and every product of them. The brand name is Dot and Key and undisputedly, I am their biggest admirer. You must feel that I am exaggerating a bit too much. All brands claim to provide the best skin care products to every skin problem of yours. I agree that a sunscreen spray, anti-tan face mask, scrubs, cleansers are nothing to be going gaga over. Let me ask you if you have an underarm color correction serum, or a knee and elbow retexturizing serum or you ever thought of buying a pre and post swim skin and hair chlorine protection spray? Trust me no one has the time to get rid of dark underarms until the day you have to go for a night out in your sexy sleeveless dress. For that matter, you have your concealer ready. These are temporary solutions of course and will not always come in handy. It is high time that you should drift more towards permanent solutions and strive in repairing your skin to get youthful looking glowing skin from beneath.
One major problem, that all Indian face is dealing with sun damage. We live in the tropicals and UVA/UVB have managed to top our list of fiends. Sunscreen is therefore not an option but a mandate. Before you become defensive about how a little bit of tan won’t do any harm, I must aware you of two things. First, the uneven tan lines don’t look beautiful no matter who says it. Secondly, being in the sun for long without any sunscreen is not cool even in the parallel universe. For the love of life-threatening skin cancers, give your undivided attention in choosing the ideal sunscreen for your skin. For the shiftless, I just made your job a little bit easier by introducing you to Dot and Key Transparent Sunscreen Spray, SPF 50. I know you must be thinking what’s so prime about it. If you ask me, I love that this sunscreen is a transparent spray that gets spread and absorbed evenly without leaving a white sticky residue on my skin. Try having oily skin type on your face and you will feel cursed your entire life. This adds on to the uncomfortable feeling of applying a thick and sticky layer of white sunscreen. Honestly, I feel like a house being freshly painted with white paint all over. A transparent sunscreen is definitely the highlight of my everyday skin routine now. Feels weightless and refreshing (it has tropical mandarin and green tea too).
The next big thing - SPF 50. Ideally, any sunscreen must have a bare minimum Sun Protection Factor of 15 to be able to fight the UVB rays. If my maths is correct, this sunscreen is more than 3 times powerful than the average. No burning red on prolonged sun exposure, check. While choosing any sunscreen, you must check the PA factor too along with SPF. PA or the Protection Grade of UVA Rays allows the sunscreen to fight against UVA rays which are the ground cause of pigmentation and dark spots. Dot and Key ensured protection over UVA and UVB rays over a very broad spectrum. The sunscreen is PA+++. The more the pluses the better the sunscreen. This is not the end of it. When I say, the product is all-praises, I mean it. It also blocks Infrared rays and blue light rays too. All-around protection, check. Most people tend to carry their sunscreen to the beaches, which is a mandate. So, is this sunscreen water-resistant too? Absolutely yes, it is water resistant up to 120 minutes. Being honest, transparent and providing the users' access to detailed and accurate information is something that helps a brand thrive in this ever-evolving world. Dot and Key has truly raised the bar for every skincare brand out there. Because they are so transparent, they earned my respect and loyalty for sure. Additionally, the sunscreen is void of any nasty chemicals. The sunscreen comes at a price of Rs. 795 for 50 ml. It, sure as hell looks expensive at first, but given the benefits and the all-around protection against the sun damage, the price is totally worth it.
So, before summer knocks at our door with full force, make sure to get Dot and Key Transparent Sunscreen Spray, SPF 50 in your radar and say hello to sunshine. If you have any questions about the brand or you would like to add any more valuable information to help others to beat sun damage, then leave them below in the comments sections. Feel free to share this to your friends and family and bask out in the sun all you want. Summer, we are ready.
Until next time,
