Ready to Play Under the Sun

April 11, 2012

Sun, sea and sand.. Summer is coming.. Summer is here! I just came from a business trip in Indonesia (with fun-filled weekend activities) but I am now longing for another trip. What surprise me is that a lot don’t like the sun, and are hesitant to take the plunge and enjoy. I know it is not about the two-piece bikini, but ladies (and even gents) are afraid to get those red spots after long hours under the sun.
I, for one didn’t care much about sunblocks or sunscreens. I have to admit that I hated putting on sunblock every hour whenever I would be out under the sun. Plus, I hate the greasy feeling after putting it on. But after seeing fine lines and reading more about harmful effects of the sun – I have to include sunblock in my packing list.

And I worry – not! Sunplay, the number one sunblock /sunscreen in Japan, is now in the Philippines! For my dear readers, you can do more than just wear your two piece and pose for pictures – guys can do more than flex their muscles and display their abs. 😉

SunPlay sunscreen / sunblock is the only sunblock that offers highest SPF of 130 and PA +++ available in the market today, giving maximum protection against UVA and UVB rays. It has a new revolutionary Watery Liquid Formulation which gives the users a non-greasy, non-sticky feel without leaving a white residue on your skin – something that I personally like since I have such oily skin.

It simply means I can do more – probably 130x more than what I can do –

Ride 4×4 ride in Ilocos Sand Dunes 
deadlier than a roller coaster!

Sand-board until I literally eat dust..

Swim with baby sharks (again) in Batangas!

Or just plain enjoy nature in Ilocos..
