It’s inevitable that when you go out, you’ll be strolling under the sun. So protect your skin by wearing sun screen before you leave!  Sunscreen helps absorb ultraviolet radiation, which helps prevent you from getting sunburnt. If you’re one of those people who doesn’t like applying lotion on your face though, you should try Happy Skin‘s Hydrating UV mist.

The best thing about this mist is that you can spray it over your make up! Use it as a setting spray and it will work as good as a normal sun screen because of its SPF35++.
