We’re in an era where skincare is put on top of our daily priority lists. Unfortunately, while we do elaborate routines, many of us still forget one very important step, which is to put on sunscreen. Did you know that sun protection is the most effective anti-ager there is? It protects your skin from the damage caused by harmful UV rays, making sure all the products you used before it work just as they should.
With the many different sunblocks to choose from, though, how would you know which one to pick? We say, go for the one that’s been in the kits of many people for a long, long time — 17 years, to be exact. Meet Anessa
, the no. 1 sunscreen brand in Japan! Why should you make their products staples in your kit, too? Here are just some of the many reasons.
It does heavy-duty protection
Stay skin-protected no matter what with the help of the Anessa Perfect UV Milk
, which has SPF 50+ and is water- and sand-resistant. It is, along with the other Anessa variants, created with Aqua Booster technology to ensure you’re protected even when you sweat.
In the past, sunscreens used to have diminished efficacy when exposed to water, but with the Aqua Booster technology, Anessa sunscreens actually deliver enhanced UV protection when they come in contact with water — or sweat.
It’s lightweight & gentle on the skin
We want something that’s strong enough to ward off the harshness of the sun’s rays but won’t cause our skin to dry or get irritated no matter our skin type. Anessa Essence UV Sunscreen Mild Milk (in SPF 35 PA+++ and SPF 50 PA++++ variants)
has an airy, silky, non-sticky texture that’s great for those of us who live in humid climates.
All their sunscreens are also colourant-free and have been proven gentle to be used for daily sun protection. The UV Sunscreen Mild Milk
, for instance, has been proven safe and effective for people with sensitive skin — it’s great even for kids. It’s also additive-free, colourant-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free and has no mineral oil.
