FAVE 5: Hand On Head | Clozette

At this day and age where most everyone aims for an Instagrammable photo, finding the right pose is key. Capturing your best angle is not something that should be taken lightly and the rise of influencers who seem to never run out of poses are living proof of this. But since not everyone has the time to formulate their photos prior to taking that shot, we're giving you a pose that could serve as your default. It provides maximum impact, minus the hassle: the head on hand. 

The technique gives a caught-off-guard vibe to your photo, making your features look more relaxed and natural. It also helps make your face the focal point of the image, ensuring a candid yet flattering result. 

Not sure how to work this pose? Let our Clozetters be your guiding example.

Look back at what happened last week here.



In life, there are things that remain constant — family, passions, and sunscreen. Yes, you read that right. We may opt to forego moisturising or exfoliating from time to time, but putting on sunscreen should be non-negotiable – no matter where you are in life, physically or mentally. So whether you're doing fun activities at the beach or enjoying the foreign but delightful coldness of winter, a sunscreen is necessary.

Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk

The question now is: which sunscreen should you pick? With tons of choices in the market, it's truly hard to choose. But we say go for the one that works in all types of weather condition: the Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk. It's been on Japanese women's top shelves for the past 17 years — and for good reason. Not only does it protect your skin from sun damage but it also gives wonderful skincare benefits. Here's why it's the perfect travel companion no matter your destination. P.S. it comes in a 20ml travel-friendly size!

Out and about in Summer

There's a good chance you'll take a plunge and do all sorts of water activities when you're at the beach. Aside from getting a sunburn that can weaken the skin and make it more prone to bruises and injuries, you'll also be hassled by the need to reapply every so often if the sunscreen you're using isn't created to last when in contact with water. The Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk promises to deliver even when you're in the water or sweating profusely while you're busy having fun. Formulated with ground-breaking Aqua Booster Technology, this sunscreen's UV protection veil actually gets enhanced when in contact with water and sweat! Plus, it's also sand-resistant.

It’s also formulated with 360° Protect Technology that forms an even veil from every angle of your skin, including pores and lines, to protect it from UV rays.

Chilling in the Winter

While the sun's rays may be hidden and not as seemingly harsh in the winter than during the summer at the beach, they can still cause damage to the skin. You may not get sunburnt, but you can still get dark spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tone, among others. So make sure you use a sunscreen that doesn't just protect but also nourishes the skin. The Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk contains 50% skincare ingredients — super hyaluronic acid, glycerin, collagen, rose extract, aloe extract, green tea extract, Sakura leaf extract and Tormentilla extract — that will nurture the skin and make sure it's moisturised.

The Anessa Perfect UV Milk and other Anessa Sunblock variants are now available at Lazada. Head there now for a special discount of 16% when you buy a pack of two Anessa Perfect UV Milk bottles.
