Sun protection in Japanese

Tanned summer, warm sea, pleasant beach walks - there is nothing better than enjoying sunny days. However, in addition to all this fun, it is important to remember to protect our skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays. And here Japanese sunscreens with SPF come to the rescue.

In Asian countries, sun protection is of great importance and a lot of time is devoted to it. But even if you are not going to rest in Asian countries: Japan, Vietnam or Bali, but, for example, in Dubai or Turkey, sunscreens will be relevant.

In Japan, there are many options for care products and makeup products that contain sunscreen filters. Among them you can find creams, sanskrins, sanblocks, foundation creams, BB and CC creams, mineral powder and much more. They are designed to protect the skin from the negative effects of ultraviolet rays.

However, it is important to remember that the simultaneous use of several products containing sunscreen filters will not enhance protection. For example, applying two products with SPF20 will not give you SPF40 protection. Moreover, some filters can interact with each other, which eliminates their protective properties. Therefore, it is recommended to use only one product with a sunscreen filter at a time.

When choosing a product, pay attention to the PA marking, which is used in Japanese cosmetics. It indicates the level of protection against UVA rays. The more pluses next to the letters PA, the stronger the protection. The maximum value is ++++. In addition, the four pluses correspond approximately to the factor 16-20 in the PPD marking.

It is important to be careful and follow the manufacturer's instructions when choosing and using sunscreens. If you are going to mix products from different manufacturers, it is recommended to have a good knowledge of chemistry or consult a specialist to avoid possible filter conflicts and skin damage.

In addition to the rule of using only one product with a sunscreen filter at a time and applying for the PA label, there are several other important points that you should pay attention to when choosing and applying sunscreens in Japan:

SPF (Sun Protection Factor): SPF shows the degree of protection from UVB rays that cause sunburn. The higher the SPF value, the longer your skin will be protected from sunburn. In Japan, funds with SPF 30 and higher are often found.

When choosing a sunscreen, also pay attention to its texture and formula. Some creams and lotions may be heavier or greasier, so if you don't like the feeling of stickiness, you may prefer a light texture, such as water-repellent gel products. For example, MT METATRON Protect UV Gel Sunscreen Gel for faces and bodies with SPF 34 RA+++, 50 ml

3. Your skin type and its needs should be taken into account. If you have oily or problematic skin, you can look for a sunscreen that also helps control the production of sebum or has a mattifying effect.

4. Do not forget about the periodic reapplication of sunscreen. Even if the product is declared as "long-lasting" or "water-resistant", it is recommended to reapply it every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating to ensure permanent protection.

5. In addition to the use of sunscreens, it is also recommended to apply other measures of protection from sunlight, such as wearing protective clothing, hats or umbrellas, as well as limiting exposure to the sun during periods of the highest intensity (usually from 10:00 to 16:00).

In Japan, the cosmetics industry offers a variety of options for sunscreens, taking into account the different needs and preferences of users. 

Choosing the right sunscreen and following the rules of its application, you will be able to enjoy beautiful and healthy skin at any time of the year.
