Amanda says: Hey Jiezl, we get it. Living in the tropics can be crazy for our skin, considering that we switch from hot to cold temperatures in an instant every time we go about our daily routines. Besides going for cosmetics that are more 'glowy' or 'demi-matte' in finish rather than a full mattifying product, make sure you add in a hydrating moisturiser to your morning routine. Plus, keep a trusty face mist in your to-go handbag to always keep your skin looking fresh and radiant, even during long exposure to the drying and dulling effects of air conditioning.
Is it possible for your skin to get darker even if you don't leave the house? (Maria, 21)
Jorj says: You might think that being under a roof can already spare you from harmful UV rays, but that’s not exactly the case. UVA rays can still penetrate glass. Fluorescent light bulbs also emit UV radiation, which also exposes your skin to potential damage and premature aging even while indoors. So whether you're out in the sun or inside your office cubicle, make sure that you still pack on that sunscreen.
