The summer season is in. Time to bask in the sun, swim at the beach, and go for that daytime mountain hike. This is the perfect time to be religious in applying your sunscreen, too. It’s apparent, however, that sun protection use is not a habit for a lot of Filipinos.

Lucky for us, there are more options now available in the local market. We won’t have to order from abroad and have it shipped to the country. We won’t have to wait for our relatives from abroad to come home for all our beauty product pasabay, sunscreen included.

Here are some sunscreen options you would want (and need) to consider using this summer:
