We cover all the bases when it comes to skincare + UVA/UBV protection
So you already know what to wear while surviving this heatwave this weekend, but what about taking care of your skin? As one of the essential rules in our beauty book is to never stinge on the SPF in order to kick the behinds of UV rays, here are four new products that you can use to protect your skin and shield it from the nasty effects of sun exposure:
Infused with Edelweiss extract from Dior Gardens in Switzerland to diminish, correct and prevent dark spots Dior's latest skincare base is onto changing the sun-prevention game by achieving skin evenness and colour correction starting from deep within the skin. With a refined silky formula that isn't heavy or sticky, Diorsnow Bloom Perfect Skin Creator enables a dewy glow while inhibiting melanin formation on your skin.

Looking for a whitening fluid that also has UVA/UVB protection? La Mer's newest whitening technology—Brilliant Sea Ferment that is formulated with white algae, sea fern and molasses extract is all about 1) dissolving dark spots and discolourations, and 2) clarifying the skin for a radiant glow. Time to upgrade your daily sunscreen with this lightweight fluid formula!

If colour correction has always been on top of your list when you're looking for makeup bases, Chanel's latest makeup base is one you need in your arsenal. Formulated with pearl and licorise extracts to brighten skin; hyaluronic acid for hydration and comfort; and the mandatory sun protection factor to prevent dark spots, this base also unifies your skin colour and can last up to eight hours. Another plus point? Chanel's exclusive Active Enlightening Ceramic actually helps to blur imperfections and illuminate the complexion with translucency.
Tip: Apply the base before foundation to amplify its radiance and extend its wear. Shake well before opening then apply from the middle of the face outwards.
Chanel Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base is available at all Chanel Fragrance & Beauty Boutiques at 1 Utama, Sunway Pyramid, Gurney Plaza, JB Komtar and at Chanel counters at all leading departmental stores
Everyday aggressors such as environmental pollution alongside UV rays and free radicals can put a cloak over your skin, resulting in dull damaged complexion. Lancôme's latest colour corrector with sun protection is designed to combat these skin stressors and even shielding your skin from the damage caused by blue light (a first for the brand). It also corrects imperfections while smoothing out complexion alongside its skin-hydration properties.
