Experts say, “yes, we do.”

According to dermatologists, UVA rays, which are the main contributing factor to photo-aging, penetrate through a standard window glass. UVA also contributes to skin cancer, hence experts recommend wearing sunscreen even while indoors especially in a room with lots of sunlight.

“The sun’s rays can bounce off walls and penetrate to indoor exposure. Even our phones, computers, and indoor lighting make us vulnerable to UV radiation,” says Criscy Camacho, marketing and customer service director at Mary Kay Philippines Inc. 

The company thus offers its new sunscreen made for indoors and outdoors. 

“We made sure our Sheer UV Defense Milk SPF50/PA+++ gives the highest maximum protection for the skin,” says Camacho. 

SPF measures the protection against UVB rays, while PA pertains to UVA rays—and the Sheer UV Defense Milk holds the highest level of both to shield the skin. 

Sheer UV Defense Milk has a lightweight finish and is water-resistant, formulated with a physical sunscreen and infused with watermelon fruit extract, which makes it a strong yet super light and protective agent against the sun. 

“It is dermatologist-tested and suited for people with sensitive skin,” adds Camacho 

A tube of Mary Kay Sheer UV Defense Milk is priced at P2,299.
