Recently, I was invited to Watsons Sun Warrior launch held at The Palace Pool Club. 

Upon arrival, they put a SolarSafe UV Monitor wristband to monitor our exposure to sun and to help avoid sun damage. The color changes to alert us to either reapply sunscreen or to get out of the sun. 
Sprayed sunscreen to make sure we are protected under the sun. 

The event was an afternoon of fun-filled splashes and exciting surprises! Definitely a one unforgettable fun in the sun event. 
Watsons introduced their newest ambassadors Yassi Pressman and Dominique Roque in an exciting reveal.
“A SunWarrior, to me, is someone who is unafraid to go under the sun, enjoy the outdoors, and just have fun,” said resident SunWarrior 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,” adds resident SunWarrior Dominique Roque. 
Living in a tropical country makes it 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 ageing. 
This is why Watsons believes that beautiful skin is sun-protected skin. 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.

According to the expert: To achieve the Sun Protection Factor (SPF, which protects against the sun’s UVB radiation) reflected on a bottle of sunscreen, you should use approximately two milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter of skin. In practice, this means applying the equivalent of a shot glass (two tablespoons) of sunscreen to the exposed areas of the face and body – a nickel-sized dollop to the face alone. If you’re using a spray, apply until an even sheen appears on the skin. Remember that sunscreen needs to be reapplied every two hours, or more frequently after swimming, heavy perspiration, or toweling off. Also remember, no matter how much sunscreen you apply, the SPF should be 15 or higher for adequate protection – and ideally 30 or higher for extended time spent outdoors.
Sunscreen helps you enjoy more and worry less whenever you’re outdoors. Just remember that while it can protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays, a lot of its active ingredients can break down over time. So, remember to gear up with your go-to sunscreen and make sure to reapply to get that full sun protection.
