Now that summer time is fast-approaching, TV host and fashion blogger Kim Jones shares a few tips for girls who are raring for a fun and fab experience at the beach.
WEAR LOTS OF SUNSCREEN. Not only does it protect you from chronic sun exposure, but sunscreen also helps fight skin aging.
At the press conference for skin care brand Neutrogena, held on March 11, Kim learned from guest dermatologist Clarisse Mendoza that the body needs at least one ounce (roughly a shot glass) of sunscreen to ensure maximum protection from the sun’s UV rays.
“I couldn’t believe it! I’ve always thought I’m taking good care of my skin, especially while I’m at the beach.
“When I found out I’m using a lot less sunscreen, it sort of opened my eyes to what I should be doing,” says Kim, who’s crazy for Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Dry Touch sunscreen.
Not only does it contain SPF 50, but it also has an ultra light and non-greasy finish—which means you can laze around the beach without having to worry about sand sticking to your body.
“I’m a beach lover. I’m under the sun a lot, so their sunscreen is perfect,” she says.
BRING SEXY ONE-PIECE SWIMSUITS. Women who still feel uncomfortable wearing bikinis need not worry because one-piece swimsuits could be just as stylish.
As seen on her recent Instagram posts, Kim also loves to experiment with onesies that come in various bright colors.
“I’m really into one-piece swimwear at the moment. It’s a staple in my suitcase when I travel.”
DRINK LOTS OF WATER. Drinking water helps replenish the fluids caused by excessive sweating, especially during summertime.
Kim, for her part, believes that it’s actually good for her skin.
“I’m always gonna say drink lots of water," she says, adding to her list of skin care musts.
"It’s also part of my overall skincare regimen, which includes eating healthy, exercising, and getting enough sleep.
"All the boring stuff, but it works. They’re the beauty must-haves.”
Then, she gives her skin extra hydration by applying Neutrogena Hydro Boost water and gel-based moisturizer to her face.
“I use it every morning and every night.
"I love it because you don’t feel like your makeup is creasing under the side.”
Asked about what particular beach destination she wants to visit this summer, Kim shared that she’d love to go to Coron or Amanpulo in Palawan.
“I’ve never been there! I wanna explore more locally in the Philippines,” she added.
