I learned when I was 26 or 27 that I had PLME. I don’t know if I always had it, but I didn’t show symptoms until my late 20s. Sunscreen is suddenly super important in summer. I don’t want my face to flare up, nor do I want my arms to be continuously itchy!
For my face, I’ve been using a lot of Korean BB creams, but I recently picked up this Étude House Sunprise online. Korean/asian sunscreens tend to be better than American ones because they protect from both UVA/UVB rays and are continuously updated. Here in America, the sunscreen technology takes a long time to be approved. The land of the 10 step skin-care routine has to have their sunscreen down!
I liked the sun screen. It went on very smoothly and disappeared. There’s a tiny bit of a white sheen, but I figure that’s what helps reflect the sun. When I used it on my face, it made my bb cream super smooth. I liked that it was not greasy and absorbed right away. Bonus: It has a light lime smell as opposed to a generic sunscreen smell.
If you’re into Asian sunscreens, I’d love to know your recommendations.
