Start your summer preparation early by having these five hydrating sunscreens in your skincare stash
When the heat intensifies to a degree where it hurts to stay under the sun, it becomes an instinct to double up on your sunscreen and hydration in any way possible. While it may be a hassle especially to those who have other skin concerns, it’s very important to address the two problems we always face during the summer—sun damage and dehydration. Because of that, we made a short list of sunscreens you should get if you want to have that hydration and protection for the upcoming hot season.
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++
Before the pandemic happened, Biore’s UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence was one of the popular picks for sunscreen. It’s suitable for the country’s demographic since the formula is water-based which makes it lightweight, and the hyaluronic acid is there to give that extra boost of moisture. Until now, it’s still considered as a must-have because of its affordability.
Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotics
This viral TikTok sunscreen from Beauty of Joseon deserves the recognition it’s getting, and we won’t be surprised if it’s already in your stash. Many beauty enthusiasts shared how the formula feels light on the skin despite the creamy formula, and it doesn’t leave a tacky finish on the skin. On top of that, it’s infused with Rice and grain fermented extracts to calm and moisturize your skin. In the end, it will give you that Korean glass skin effect, and you won’t have to worry about getting a white cast.
ISNTREE Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel
You might be a bit skeptical at first since it’s a chemical and water-based sunscreen, but this viral sunscreen from ISNTREE has become a go-to for many beauty lovers out there. It has a lotion-like texture to it that makes it easier for it to be absorbed by the skin. The Centella Asiatica and Fig Extract are added in the ingredients to help ease heated and irritated skin, which might lead to possible dryness in the future.
Glow Recipe Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Facial Sunscreen
While this sunscreen from Glow Recipe is another chemical sunscreen, you’ll be hitting three birds with one stone if you’ll be using it. Apart from the broad-spectrum protection you’ll get from the SPF 50, it also aims to reduce the appearance of your dark spots and pores thanks to the niacinamide, while the hyaluronic acid is there to hydrate and retain that moisture in your skin.
Shiseido Urban Environment Triple Beauty Suncare Emulsion SPF 50+
This Shiseido sunscreen works double time because of its Sun Dual Care™ technology that claims to protect your skin from UV rays, while also turning fractions of the sunlight into healthy light that will boost your skin’s vibrancy. Another factor to this is that it also has antioxidants and hyaluronic acid that will give your skin a much needed boost of hydration.
