At last! Summer is here and sun is burning.
Are you getting honey brown and feeling sexy? That’s awesome.
However, you may want to avoid getting too much tan, especially on your face.
Well, just like I have written on my blog post about what sun can do to your skin, unless you want to look much more mature than you really are, in other words, unless you want to look OLD, you definitely want to avoid getting too much sun on your face.
Though, off course it is tough to do so 24/7, plus we need sun!!
That’s why we need sunscreen to protect our gorgeous skin! And not only when we go to the beach. We constantly need to protect our skin from UVs, even in the city. Thanks to the sunscreen, we can only get the benefit of the sun and filter the damaging UVs.
Japanese sunscreens have the reputation of being so effective while still gentle to your skin. It sure has to, as it’s part of our skincare routine, all year long.
Out of hundreds of sunscreens, they are the top 5 products that have been selected as the “Best Sunscreens in Japan” recently!

No.1 Sunscreen!! “Biore sarasara UV aqua rich watery essence SPF50”
Powerful UV cut yet watery and gente texture with moisturizing essence.
Reasonable & can be bought in a drugstore, yet effective. The standard of sunscreens!
No.2 Best Sunscreen!! “Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV aqua booster”
With a special waterproof technology to turn water or sweat into UV cut. Yet easy to wash off by soap. Yeah, have you noticed that the obsolete sunscreens are sticky and leave a film on the skin, which is difficult to remove even by showering? In Japan, we are far from that level.
Can be purchased also in drugstores.
No.3 Best Sunscreen!! “Biore sarasara UV nobinobi Kids Milk”
Gentle enough to use for young children, yet tough enough to resist water and sweat.
The issue of chemical sunscreens unlike the mineral sunscreens is that the UV absorbing agents penetrate the skin, and can be less tolerated by sensitive skin. This one blocks the penetration of the UV absorbing agents into the skin, therefore stays gentle to the skin.
No.4 Best Sunscreen!! “Acseine Super Sunshield EX”
Powerful UV cut yet non-chemical and gentle. Can also be used as primer.
Acseine is famous among people with sensitive skin and atopic skin. The formulas are based on dermatological researches and allergen control system. When I was young, I myself suddenly started an allergic reaction to DHC skincare that I used to use at that time and that I liked very much. I switched all my skincare to Acseine and got recovered. I never felt any irritation on my sensitive and aggressed skin at that time!
No.5 Best Sunscreen!! “SK-II Auractivator CC cream”
The most premium of all, from the worldwide popular high end brand SK-II.
Primer with SPF+50 UV protection. Moisture your skin and brighten your skin tone. Comes out luster to skin and covers troubles, it’s a CC cream with UV protection. Popular for its spreadability, and fitness to the skin. Can be layered with foundation or used alone with a little bit of powder.
Now that you know the best among all the choices we have here in Japan, you have no reason not to protect your skin properly!
Enjoy summer and stay beautiful!
