It’s Not Just the Face: What You Didn’t Know About the Sun and Your Body

As warmer weather draws to a close, you may be storing away your wide brim hats and applying thinner layers of SPF.

About the product

What Is It:

Missha All Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk is a K-beauty favorite for its highest levels of UVA and UVB protection, lightweight texture, non-sticky finish, and perhaps best of all, no white cast! The Waterproof Sun Milk features a double layer technology, making it sweat- and waterproof, perfect for outdoor activities or water sports. Formulated with eucalyptus extract to control excess oil and antioxidant-rich ingredients for anti-aging protection from free radical damage, this sun milk cools skin upon application.

Our insight:

In Asia and Europe, the PA+ signifies how much UVA (the aging rays) protection you’re getting. The more “+” signs, the better (with the max being four “+” signs).
Find out more about UVA and UVB rays, and why sun protection is critical to your skincare routine, here.

How to use:

As the last step in your skin care routine, apply to your face and body as needed. Pat in to absorb.
