Egg-citing Surprises Awaits you at SM Snack Exchange and Toy Kingdom

Interesting facts about Easter:
  • Eggs were formerly a forbidden food during the Lenten season? So to mark the end of the period of penance, people would paint, decorate and eat them on Easter as a form of celebration, hence came Easter Eggs. 
  • Meanwhile, the Easter Bunny was brought to America German immigrants in the 1700s.  The Germans brought with them their tradition of an egg-laying hare called Osterhase or Oschter Haws. The German children would make nests in which these creatures could lay colored eggs.
  • The fabled rabbit’s morning deliveries later on expanded to include chocolate, candy, and gifts, while  beautifully decorated baskets replaced nests.

Sun Warriors Unite at the Most Colorful Fun Run in Manila

The most colorful and vibrant fun run in Manila recently broke world records with 5,275 runners who all applied sun screen simultaneously before running the 3k, 5k, and 10k routes with exciting obstacles in the Watsons Sun Warrior Challenge held recently at the SM Mall of Asia ground.

Watsons Sun Warrior ambassadors Yassi Pressman and Dominique Roque led the way to be a Sun Warrior and pledged to be bold, brave, and always sun-protected. Other Sun Warrior guests included triathlete Kim Atienza and TV host Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuzon who also bravely took the challenge: keeping skin protected under the sun, running the 3k route and obstacles, and dancing and partying with colors during the sunny Sunday morning.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the major cause of skin cancer. Exposure of skin under the sun is pummeled by invisible rays that can cause your skin to darken and burn. But the good news is that you can reduce risk of getting skin cancer by protecting yourself from the sun’s UV rays.
Protecting your skin from it does not mean you have to stay indoors all the time, because being a Sun Warrior means anyone can still enjoy outdoors under the sun.
“A SunWarrior, to me, is someone who is unafraid to go under the sun, enjoy the outdoors, and just have fun,” says resident Sun Warrior Yassi Pressman.

“For me a Sun Warrior is someone who is not afraid to try out new adventures with friends, family, and someone who is just game for everything,” add Dominique Roque.

So, how does one become a Sun Warrior like Yassi and Dominique?  Here are three exciting ways from Watsons.
1. Include sun protection in your everyday routine with amazing products like Belo’s Sun Expert Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50, Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock Extreme 80, Cetaphil SPF 69, Kojiesan SPF 69, and Celeteque Dermosicence Sun Care Face and Body Defense Cream SPF50. 

Going beyond protection, Olay Natural White prevents the formation of dark spots caused by the sun, giving you fairness that glows; while Vaseline’s Healthy White SPF 30 provides three layers of protection that helps keep skin fair and even toned.  Ponds BB Cream is your solution to a brightening foundation cream with UVA and UVB protection; while Neutrogena’s Ultra MD Body Lotion SPF 100 is fast absorbing, water resistant, and lightweight, and infused with a light, fresh scent.

2. For an active day out, get your full sun protection from Nivea Sun Whitening Sun and Collagen Protection SPF 50, Biore UV aqua Rich SPF 50, Sunplay Ultra Shiled SPF 130, Banana Boat Ultra Protect Sunscreen Lotion, Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch SPF 50,  and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50.  Of course there’s DWatsons SunCare, a gentle, fragrance free sunscreen specially created for sensitve skin.

3. Make sure to reapply sunscreen to get that full sun protection. Just remember that while sunscreen can protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays, a lot of its active ingredients can break down over time. 
Take care of your Skin, Be a Sun Warrior!
