Top 5 Best Sunblocks in Malaysia 2023 (for Face & Body)
Looking for a sunblock? Let us suggest one suitable for your skin with our selection of the 5 Best Sunblocks that you can find at Watsons & other stores on Shopee & Lazada. But first we see what exactly is a sunblock and how it is different from sunscreen which we have shared before.
What Is A Sunblock?
Sunblock is a physical type of sunscreen (physical sunscreen). The main purpose of sunblock is to protect the skin from harmful UVA & UVB rays so we won’t get sunburn, run the risk of skin diseases as well as wrinkling.
It acts as a protector that will bounce back the rays of sunlight from penetrating into the skin, kind of like an umbrella for our skin.
Difference Between Sunblock & Sunscreen
If we go to Watson or other pharmacies, we’ll find many options for a sunblock and sunscreen. In general, sunblock protects against UVB and sunscreens against UVA. However, many sunblocks and sunscreens now do both (UVA & UVB), protecting against wrinkles and sunburn at the same time.
They do the same job, but in different ways. Sunblock reflects sun rays whereby sunscreen seeps into the skin and absorbs sun rays before releasing it back as heat. Hence, if you have sensitive skin, you might want to try sunblock instead of sunscreen. In this article for the best sunscreens, we explain more about sunscreen.
Among other differences between a sunblock and sunscreen are the main active ingredients. Sunblock often contain Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide which are both inorganic. Often, a sunblock cream will leave a white cast when applied. But don’t worry, with the latest innovation, some products can avoid that as well as the gray look on your face.
