“What the hell is an outfit-ready skin?” My friend asked upon peeping through my computer screen and seeing the artsy-fartsy banner I made over break. I’m sure a lot of you are probably scratching your heads wondering the same thing–so okay, I coined the term from the deepest recesses of my butt, though to be fair, the term is pretty self-explanatory. For the sake of everyone, allow me to describe it in a sexy manner: it’s basically skin so scrumptious, it goes with any outfit.
I can’t stress enough the importance of good skin. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the best accessory you can ever have is good skin. This is most probably why I can’t leave the house without sunscreen for both my face and my body (and yes, I carry both with me everyday). However, if there’s anything “odd” about me, it’s that I’m a huge sucker for lotions–bordering on an obsession. I actually used to own and use over 20 bottles in one go at one point in my life. Long before I owned designer bags, I collected lotion bottles of various, exotic scents as a tweener. That was pretty much short-lived because I have chronic eczema and scented lotions would make my body break out in angry, horrible rashes.
Nowadays, every corner of my room hosts a bottle of lotion–from the bathroom counter, to my makeup bureau, my bedside, my office desk, and even my car! Without slathering on lotion, I honestly feel like there’s something “off” with my routine. Nowadays, I’m not at all concerned about the scent of my lotion–I actually prefer the smell be mild to none! What I do look at are the ingredients utilised, the SPF, and promised product benefits. So when I was sent 2 variants of Silka’s Premium Whitening Lotion, I had to weigh my options and see if I was willing to give the brand a try, but I was immediately sold upon seeing the built-in SPF.
So what I love about the 2 variants is their light and refreshing smell. On top of that, both are quite moisturizing—the orange variant is infused with milk and honey while the green one is infused with Olive Oil. It’s not everyday that you get inexpensive lotions mixed with premium and luxurious ingredients. Both of which are made with Papaya, by the way, for that glowing white skin.
Personally, I am super crazy with the SPF 30. For perspective, your skin needs SPF 15 (blocks 93% UV rays) or higher, but basically SPF 30 is already the maximum and most sensible option, keeping out 97% UV rays! Since Silka has this already, all you have to do is slather this every morning before you head out to keep your skin protected and young. With Silka, you’re basically saying “YES” to any possible obstacle pertaining your skin—YES to confidence under the sun, YES to living beautifully, and YES to balanced, outfit-ready skin.
