Stay cool with these indoor things to do in JB

The unmatched food scene and endless array of cheap massage parlours and outlet malls make JB great. But sometimes, its weather can get blistering hot and humid, or just straight up downpouring. If you find yourself across the causeway on such days, swap an outdoor itinerary with these indoor things to do instead.

Not gonna lie, but sometimes, staying out of the sun has its benefits. For once, you won’t be sweating profusely. You’ll also not have to worry too much about overexposure to UV rays which can lead to things like premature aging and dark spots. 

That said, if you’re well in your 30s and seeing aging signs on your face, chest, and neck, don’t freak. There are plenty of serums on the market like the NIVEA Luminous 630 Anti-Age & Spot Serum that can replenish your glow.


Containing soy, squalane, and anti-spot ingredients, the formula works to improve skin elasticity and reduce hyperpigmentation like dark spots and sun spots. On top of that, the serum has other benefits like boosting the skin’s collagen and hyaluronic production, as well as densifying and filling wrinkles in as little as 7 days. 


If your immediate skin concern isn’t lines and wrinkles, but dull skin and dark spots, you’ve also come to the right place. With NIVEA Anti-Dark Spots Serum, you’ll be able to brighten your skin and keep it glowing 24/7 while fade blemishes – all thanks to the Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E in the formula.


The bottom line is, a face serum is one of the most important products in your skincare routine – if not the most. Incorporate it into your routine asap so you can improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity, regardless of whether you spend most of your time in or out of the sun.
