Top 10 Best Sunblock In Malaysia 2022

Malaysia can be so hot sometimes! That doesn’t mean we should stay inside and hide. But before you’re out and exposed to the hot sun, make sure you have applied the most crucial cream onto your face, sunblock! Sunscreen, often known as sunblock or suntan lotion, is a photoprotective topical preparation for the skin that absorbs or reflects some of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays to prevent sunburn and, more critically, skin cancer. Sunblocks are available in a variety of forms, including lotions, sprays, gels, foams and more!

When you go to the sunblock sections, you would notice that there are ones that are labelled as sunblock or sunscreen. Both of these types are still good to prevent excessive sun exposure, but with different functions. In comparison, sunscreen will filter the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. It blocks off the majority of the sun’s rays while allowing some to pass through. Sunblock, on the other hand, bounces the sun’s rays away from the skin and prevents them from penetrating. 

Here are the ten best sunblocks you can get in Malaysia!
