ICYDK, you still need to wear sunscreen indoors! Even when you’re just staying at home, you’re still exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays. So, it’s important to keep your skin hydrated and protected. These harmful UV rays can make your skin feel dry and dull. Worse, they can leave dark spots and uneven complexion.

But where exactly do these UV rays come from if you’re already getting some shade at home? Think about the sunlight that goes through your windows. The UV rays can *still* penetrate the glass, and you won’t even notice until the damage is done. When your home is full of screen windows, that’s all the more reason to protect yourself since screens can’t shield you at all from these harmful rays.

In case you don’t work by a window, you’re not in the clear just yet! Blue light from your gadget screens can also emit UV radiation, which can cause the same kind of damage to your skin that you can get from the sun.

Pay attention to your skin ASAP! Below are sunscreen products you might want to add to your morning skincare routine:

1. Belo Tinted Sunscreen

Sun Care Level: SPF 50, PA++++

Aside from protecting your skin from intense sunlight, this tinted sunblock also works as a lightweight foundation. It helps even out skin tone and conceal blemishes. The coverage is perfect for a fresh lang no-makeup makeup look!
