Be a SUNWARRIOR with Watsons!

by - February 20, 2016

Being in a tropical country all my life, summer is all year round and it's more fun to go out for a run, relax at the beach, or bask in the sun for that gorgeous glow. However, it's not always fun especially when your skin starts getting that burning sensation. The sun's UV rays can cause unseen permanent damage to your skin and without sun protection; your skin is more prone to premature aging.

I myself have experienced a really bad sunburn. My face had a burning sensation for almost two weeks and then I started pealing. My kids suffered the same thing. It was not a pretty sight! :( Hence, I always made sure I'm protected when under the sun. But did you also know that even cloudy days can cause harm to your skin? Because UV rays are still present, whether the sun is out or not during the day.

That's why Watsons believes that beautiful skin is sun-protected skin. :)

At the recent SunWarrior launch held at The Palace Pool Club, Watsons introduced their newest ambassadors Yassi Pressman and Dominique Roque in an exciting reveal. :)

"A Sun Warrior, to me, is someone who is unafraid to go under the sun, enjoy the outdoors, and just have fun!" - Yassi Pressman

"For me, a SunWarrior is someone who is not afraid to try out new adventures with friends, and family, and someone who is just game for everything." - Dominique Roque

Watsons simply shows us that it's not just about looking good; it's about feeling great too. So, whether you're the sporty gal, the beach bum, or just the common commuter, you, too, can be a SunWarrior - someone who is bold, brave, and protected under the sun.

It was extremely hot when I got to the Watsons event. Thankfully though, we were given these UV sensitive bracelets...

It's originally white and immediately turns violet as a signal that you need to reapply sunscreen again. :) Very efficient! So, I could have fun in the sun without worrying about my skin! :)

With the blogger friends:  Dana, Tina, Earth, Shen, Alex, Marj, Misty, Miko, David and Vina :)

Too bad I had a class to teach that day, so I wasn't able to go swimming, but my friends certainly had the extra fun by dipping in the pool! :)
