Navigate Singapore in Style

Published by StraitsCanopy on

Singapore only has two seasons. It’s either super sunny and bright coupled with heat and humidity or it rains and pours sporadically like Mother Nature has suffered a broken heart.

No matter what weather we are having never leave home without a sunscreen. We have more sun than shade in Singapore and pro-longed exposure to UV rays is terrible for the skin.

My current holy grail of SPF-ness is Laneige BB Cushion (Pore Control) that is loaded with SPF 50+  I don’t like the smell of SPF on drugstore products so this BB cream from Laneige works well for me.  You have a choice of normal skin, combination skin and oily skin as well.  I swear by this product because it has such a huge range of skin tones covered for every ethnicity.  I’m slightly more than tan so my colour of choice is No. 33 Coffee.  A bit of dab goes a long way and it stays at least 8 hours without touch ups. It gives a nice dewy glowy look on the skin.  However if you prefer a matt skin tone, just brush thru a face powder of press powder and you’re good to go.


Laneige also offers Sun Block that is SPF 50+ PA+++ good for all skin types.  This is for someone who doesn’t use a lot of make up or no make up and is ideal for outdoor activities. Going for a jog? Slather this on, you will thank us in years to come.
