[K-Beauty] Must Have Sun Care 2023

Lately in several countries in Asia, we experience heat waves or extreme hot weather that makes the air temperature feel so hot that it stings the skin. The ultraviolet (UV) index indicates very high to extreme status which is very dangerous for the skin, that's why you have to use sunscreen to prevent the risk of skin cancer. What kind of sun screen should be used?

A good sunscreen must have 2 ingredients, a sun protection factor (SPF) which protects against UVB rays or causes sunburn, and protection grade of UVA (PA) which protects the skin from UVA rays, the cause of skin aging and skin cancer.
This time I recommend some Korean sun screens which I think are worth trying because they have good ingredients for the skin and are able to protect the skin from the bad effects of sunlight.

[K-Beauty] Must Have Sun Care 2023

This means that when choosing a sunscreen, you should not only pay attention to the high SPF, but also the PA content in it. according to international consensus, a good sunscreen is a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Meanwhile for PA, the level needs to be minimum three plus (+) and above.

As you can see, the texture is lightweight and spreads easily along the skin. I love the texture, my skin love it too, don’t need wait too long to absorb. Not like others sunscreen, this sun serum provide a mildly moisturising and hydrating finish, because its contain emollients and hydrating ingredients.

The first time applied will giving a little whitecast, but after a while it will give a natural dewy finish, which is beautiful and has no white cast at all. After absorb, you can use makeup and it doesn't pilling, still feels light and comfortable on the skin. The downside is this sun serum not sweat-resistant, if you get sweat it will stings your eyes a little. But I think almost all chemical sunscreen is like that.

Due to its beautiful silky-smooth finish and it works great as a primer for makeup, also this sun serum does a wonderful job at smoothing out the texture and plumping out my dry skin.

As it named, this sun cream has tone up effect but in my opinion the tone up not too much. Have light texture and absords well, the texture itself is pink like milk lotion that's full of vitamin nutrients and brightens your skin tone. If you follow my blog for a long time, you will know I do not wear face makeup often because I life in humid country which is have many days with heat so I dont like the sticky feeling because my sunscreen melted from the heat. Thats why I love this sunscreen, very lightweight, easy to apply, and despite the heat, I could barely feel this on my skin, like my second skin.

I love using Tocobo Vita Tone Up Sun Cream when I'm lazy using makeup because it helps my skin look flawless glowing healthy skin like using natural make up. Honestly this sun cream like a skin care because have high content vitamin which is block UV rays and skin care at the same time. For those who don't like dewy finish can set it using Loose Powder or tap it using a dry tissue. The only thing I don't like is that after blending it takes time to get absorbed into the skin perfectly and looks white cast for a while, before finally blending into my skin tone.

Its vegan friendly, REEF FRIENDLY's hypoallergenic prescription for safe skin and sea. I like this Tocobo Vita Tone Up Sun Cream because can smooth skin texture for pores and blemish correction like a primer, and after re-application, its not smudging or clumping. Make my skin looks bright and clear, like using nothing, not sticky at all.

This time I will remind you to using your sunscreen with correct application method. Don't forget to applying your favorite sunscreen using the two-finger rule✌️for safe and effective sun protection. This technique involves applying enough sunscreen to cover the area of skin between your index and middle fingers, which is approximately 1/4 teaspoon for the face and neck. Applying SPF every morning is essential, but to get the full protection, you must reapply throughout the day. If you have chosen the best sunscreen but use it lightly and only once a day is useless, skin wont be protected.
