Are you one of those people who do not forget to apply sunscreen before activities both morning and afternoon in all seasons? Sunscreen is very important to use to protect the skin from sun exposure.
Although we already know the adverse effects of sunlight on the skin, most of us often forget to even reluctantly use it. Rihanna, a pop star and businesswoman in the cosmetics world, is campaigning for sunscreen via her instagram account.
According to Rihanna, It’s Important to Protect Skin With Sunscreen
A few days ago the “We Found Love” singer shared a selfie of her on her social media account. In the photo, Rihanna is seen wearing a sexy bra with a peach-colored Savage and Fenty with lace accents.
She also uses Fenty Skin Starter Set, which is her skincare product line. The starter set consists of Total Cleanser cleanser, toner as well as Fat Water serum, and Hydra Vizor moisturizer containing SPF 30.
Her appearance in the photo was complemented by a bucket hat made by a famous designer. Mark Sabino. Part of her face is covered in bucket hats, while other parts of the face such as nose, cheeks and lips are visible. The singer, who is familiarly called Riri, applies sunscreen on her nose and cheeks.
In the caption, he wrote “Protecting my melaninku when they (the sun) are trying to destroy it! Mini gang @fentyskin #FentySkinStartRs!”.
Rihanna’s Uploads About Sunscreen
The photo with a caption inviting people to use sunscreen was denied by one of Riri’s followers. The netizens said “it’s winter.”
Rihanna quickly responded and defended the use of sunscreen to protect her skin. Riri says that despite the winter season, the skin still needs sunscreen protection.
Rihanna wrote, for her the netizen’s comments were simply an ignorance. If he still thinks SPF is seasonal, he will have wrinkles on his skin. Therefore, keep using sunscreen even in winter.
Previously, Rihanna has also expressed her views on sunscreen. Riri explains why she makes her own facial care products that also focus on SPF. According to Rihanna, her brand’s SPF products are suitable for women of all races as well as skin torcolors. It is also Riri’s top priority in creating its product formula.
Another great thing about moisturizers that contain SPF in general is that it generally leaves white cast marks as well as unpleasant aromas. Departing from the problem, Rihanna innovated a facial moisturizer that can be worn all skin colors without leaving a grayish-white mark.
