spring is just around the corner and although I really like the winter and can’t wait for some warmth and the change to my spring wardrobe. the only downside, sunrays. ever since my research on korean skincare I have been stressing the importance of sunscreen to everyone around me. putting on sunscreen is so important and should be the most important step in anyones skincare routine. sunscreens help to block UVB damaging the skin and UVA causing skin aging. if you don’t do anything about that sunrays can cause sunburn, dark spots, wrinkles, aged looking skin and even go so far as to causing skin cancer. I have recently come across the missha sunscreen which they are even selling in german drugstores now. people who are put off by sunscreen because they have the prejudice of sunscreen being really sticky and uncomfortable will be surprised because this sunscreen is something else.
the missha all-around safe block essence SPF45/PA+++ is my first ever korean sunscreen. so far I have been using normal sunscreens and a japanese one, all of them were “okay” but I never really liked their consistency and the feeling they left on my skin after applying it. normal sunscreen is usually very sticky and therefore not really pleasant on the skin. the japanese one (bioré) was very thin and moisturizing, it felt more like an essence rather than a thick enough barrier to block UV rays. I was very surprised by the consistency of the missha all-around safe block essence, because although it is advertised as an essence it is still thick enough for me to feel like I have applied something that will protect my skin. the essences used in the product help the skin’s moisture by hydrating and nourishing it and therefore making makeup application very easy.
the only thing that I don’t like and I have to admit I don’t really know about is how to handle reapplying my sunscreen during the day when I don’t want to mess up my full face of makeup. unfortunately applying sunscreen once in the morning won’t do the job of protecting your skin all day long. I did my research and found that you have to reapply your sunscreen every two to three hours. there are several methods in how to make sure your skin won’t suffer from UV rays. you can either get a cushion compact with SPF, a powder with SPF or my favourite option a face mist with SPF. I am pretty sure that there are more options, so there is no way for you to back out of protecting your skin from UV rays.
how do you protect your skin from the sun? let me know.
