It’s summer all year round in Singapore, but this is the month where you still can’t escape from the hot weather even when you travel because it’s summer (except in the Southern hemisphere)!
Besides getting tanned or burnt, exposure to UV rays without any protection can lead to the appearance of signs of ageing, as well as hyperpigmentation.

More Sun Protection Tips
Besides wearing sufficient sunscreen, here are other tips to sun-proof your skin:
- Reapply your sunscreen. Just applying it at the start of the day is not enough, because it will wear off during the day. Reapply every four hours for best coverage.
- Wear a hat or cap. If you’re heading out under the sun, wearing a hat or cap to shade your face will not just block you from the sun’s glare but also protect your skin from UV rays.
- Don’t be fooled by the weather. Even when it’s raining, or even snowing, UV rays are there. They can penetrate through the clouds, water and even your window panes. Always remember your sunscreen even if the weather doesn’t seem “sunny”.
