Here’s How To Be Mild To Yourself

Start with ANESSA


The past year of navigating our lives around the pandemic has no doubt challenged us all. To ensure our safety and those of our loved ones, we’ve committed to staying social at a distance. It’s no secret that it can get lonely and stressful. It doesn’t mean it can’t get better though. We believe a little mildness goes a long way.


Caring for yourself with gentleness in all aspects of life can help a lot in not just uplifting your spirits but improving each area. Here’s how to do it.

Mildness on the outside


We’re all keeping a distance to ensure everyone’s safety, but it’s no secret that even with the measures we take, it’s still a worrisome time. Stress can undoubtedly wreak havoc on your skin. Those with sensitive skin might find this even more challenging, with experiencing redness while under the sun and rushing to get home quickly, as well as having sudden flare-ups due to stress. We say it’s another reason to practice being mild to yourself.


ANESSA UV Mild Range

The ANESSA Perfect UV Mild Milk and Moisture UV Mild Gel protect the skin immensely but also gently.


Don’t let your sensitive skin become another reason to be stressed out when you head out for errands – on top of worrying about the current health issue we’re all facing. Turn to the newly reformulated ANESSA UV Mild Range for not just nourishing protection but also ultra comfort.


ANESSA Perfect UV Mild Milk

ANESSA Perfect UV Mild Milk not only protects but also has skin-loving beauty benefits.


The ANESSA Perfect UV Mild Milk gives you SPF50+ PA++++ without stickiness. It has a smooth texture that glides on and gets instantly absorbed by the skin — plus, it doesn’t leave a white cast and actually provides a natural glow to the skin.

It protects the skin from all types of UV rays in all directions while being incredibly comfortable to wear thanks to its smoothPROTECT technology. This new formula also gives the skin a silk-like smooth finish. It has Aqua Booster EX that makes it sweat- and water-proof. It stays on even with your clothes or mask rubbing against it as well. Aside from giving the skin sun protection, it also improves skin texture thanks to Peony Root extract and moisturises the skin with the help of super hyaluronic acid, an anti-inflammatory licorice-derived ingredient, and glycerin. It’s perfect for those with sensitive skin.

ANESSA Moisture UV Mild Gel

ANESSA Moisture UV Mild Gel is light as water but heavy on protection.


Meanwhile, the ANESSA Moisture UV Mild Gel gives SPF35 PA+++ while moisturising the skin on your face and body. This water-based sunscreen gets absorbed easily and gives a clear finish and a subtle glow on the skin. You can use it as a makeup primer too. It’s also packed with Aqua Booster EX that makes it resistant to sweat, water and rubbing. Despite this, it’s quite easy to remove and wash off — just use your favourite cleanser or body wash. It nourishes and improves the skin texture too, and is great for those with dry and sensitive skin.

Both sunscreens are made without additives, fragrance, colourants, alcohol and parabens, making them great for your sensitive skin — and even babies’* skin.

You’ll be happy to know that you’re not protecting just your skin when you use these, you’re also being mild to the environment. The ANESSA Perfect UV Mild Milk comes in a bioplastic-made bottle, which is made from raw material derived from sugarcane from Brazil.

ANESSA, Japan’s no. 1 sunscreen brand for 20 years, offers sunscreens in different formats based on different skin needs and types — all backed by Shiseido’s 100 years of research and development.

The ANESSA range contains the new and improved Triple Defense Technology which actually helps to strengthen the products’ UV protection when it comes in contact with water, sweat or heat.

Reviews from our Community on the ANESSA Mild UV Range


We asked 12 women from our community to add a little mildness to their routine and review the ANESSA UV Mild Range.

Michal and Lara share their fondness for the sunscreens’ texture and finish. As far as application goes, Michal particularly liked how the Perfect UV Mild Milk “helped to seal in the moisture” in her skin while giving her ample sun protection. Meanwhile, Lara likes that it has a smooth finish too.

In their review, the two also shared how they liked how the Moisture UV Mild Gel gets absorbed quickly and its ability to “leave the skin feeling smooth and silky.” They both enjoyed that the sunscreens are fragrance-free too — perfect for sensitive skin. 

Mildness on your mind


After taking care of what’s outside, turn to what’s inside. We may be used to being critical of ourselves, especially in the midst of challenges. However, those are the moments when we actually need to be mild. Giving yourself positive affirmations can help to affect not just the way you think of yourself at the moment but also in the future.

Mildness inside your body


Nourish your body with the help of things that you consume. Be mild with your hardworking body by prioritising healthy, nutritious food. You don’t need to shun your favourites, but perhaps substituting them with milder versions from time to time can help. Trade your sweet chocolate to one that’s made with 60% cocoa or spare the spiked drinks for special occasions. We hope these remind you that a little mildness can go a long way.
