11 Korean Sunscreens You Need In Your Skincare Routine ASAP

For decades, South Korea has led the beauty industry with product innovations (think: cushion compacts and essences), and sunscreen is no exception. Korean sunscreens have become a superior option for sun protection because of their skincare-like properties and advanced ingredients. Michelle Shieh, Scientific Communications Manager at Amorepacific US, notes that sunscreen and skincare hybrid products have been a part of K-beauty since its inception. “With mature and constantly evolving advanced technologies as well as formulation techniques, we have developed effective sunscreens infused with skincare benefits like hydrating, soothing, and additional antioxidant protection,” she says. “On top of making sure the texture is super comfortable with minimal to no white cast.”

Ahead, Shieh shares why Korean sunscreen deserves a spot in your skincare roster.

K-beauty prioritizes sunscreen.

The essential step in the K-beauty skincare regimen? The application of sunscreen. “In Asia, the concept of daily usage of sunscreen dates way back,” Shieh explains. “Daily sunscreen wear has been a prevalent practice that has been passed down for many generations already. It’s been considered to be more as a part of the skincare routine to prevent sun damage rather than an extra step for outdoor occasions to prevent sunburn.”

Korean sunscreens are comparable to skincare.

Thanks to advanced technology and ingredients, Korean sunscreen has a similar texture and feel to regular skincare products. “When compared to traditional western sunscreens, K-beauty sunscreen formulations are a lot more lightweight and more like skincare,” Shieh says. “It’s also common for users to carry around a cushion compact for easy reapplication of sunscreen (or a foundation with SPF) throughout the day.”

Korean sunscreens offer more coverage.

When it comes to the broad spectrum rating system, Korea differs from the U.S. “SPF value indicates the level of UVB protection, which is responsible for causing sunburn on the skin, while UVA penetrates deeper into the skin and causes damage that leads to extrinsic aging,” Shieh explains. “Both Korea and the U.S. use the same SPF numbering system to indicate UVB protection level. However, when it comes to the UVA protection level, Korea uses the P.A. system. So when you look at a sunscreen sold in Korea, you need to make sure that both SPF and P.A. levels are indicated to know that the sunscreen protects the skin against both (SPF 50+/PA ++++).”
The U.S. doesn’t follow the P.A. system for UVA. “If a sunscreen covers both UVB and UVA protection, it would be labeled as ‘broad spectrum’ along with the SPF value,” Shieh adds.

You're Pronouncing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Daughter's Name Completely Wrong


Congratulations are in order for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle,who shared yesterday that they’ve welcomed their second child into the world — a daughter named Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

Born on Friday, June 4 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, Lili weighed in at 7 lbs 11 oz. Both she and Meghan “are healthy and well.” In an official statement, the two shared that the name was thoughtfully chosen to pay tribute to Harry’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, and grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, whose family nickname is Lilibet.

“She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe,” Meghan and Harry said in the statement. “Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Are ‘Telling Friends That They’re Together’ as a Couple

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Are ‘Telling Friends That They're Together’ as a Couple


All the reports about Bennifer’s back-on romance aren’t downplaying how serious Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are about dating again, just one month after they were seen publicly hanging for the first time. Entertainment Tonight reports that Affleck and Lopez have defined their relationship and are telling their friends that they’re a couple. This is not some casual fling.

Affleck and Lopez, for context, were originally engaged in the early 2000s. They ultimately called off their engagement for good and went their separate ways in early 2004.

Fast forward to summer 2021, and “J.Lo and Ben are very much a couple and have been telling friends that they’re together,” Entertainment Tonight‘s source said. “When they first reconnected, they had to see if the spark was still there because it had been a while. It was, so now they are both fully in it.”

They aren’t ignoring the past though, the source added: “[They have] talked about the past and why things didn’t work out. They are both hopeful about their relationship this time around and putting the effort in. They have both matured and are on the same page and it has been easy.”

Lopez in particular “is elated and really trusts Ben. Ben is more traditional and low-key in his values and Jen is into that. She likes that they can go on dates and have fun. She also thinks that Ben is extremely smart and has a lot of great input.”

ET’s update comes after People reported last week that the two intend to spend a lot of time together this summer despite being bicoastal. (J.Lo is based in Miami, and Affleck is in L.A.) Lopez and Affleckare discussing summer plans,” People‘s source said. “[They] want to spend as much time together as possible. They also want to take a trip.” Generally, “they are both acting very comfortable in their relationship.”

Shailene Woodley Revealed She and Aaron Rodgers Moved In Together as Soon as They Started Dating

Shailene Woodley Revealed She and Aaron Rodgers Moved In Together as Soon as They Started Dating


Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers’ surprise engagement came after a rapid-fire romance that started with the two moving in together, Woodley revealed in a new interview with Shape.

“Starting a relationship where you immediately move in with someone—because it’s a pandemic and you can’t just get on a plane and go back and forth on weekends—taught us a lot about each other very quickly,” she said. “We jumped in headfirst and got some of the sticky bits out of the way early.”

Woodley added that while quarantine helped them get to know each other faster because they weren’t traveling for work as much, “I have the perspective that I would have met Aaron in any context, any space in time, because I feel we were meant to be together.”

Woodley and Rodgers’ exact relationship start date isn’t known. But Rodgers was in a relationship with Danica Patrick until July 2020, and Woodley described herself as single in April 2020.

Their engagement was revealed in February 2021, but Woodley later admitted they had actually been privately engaged for a while before the public found out. “Yes, we are engaged, we are engaged,” she told Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show in late February. “But for us, it’s not new news, you know, so it’s kind of funny, everybody right now is freaking out over it, and we’re like, yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while. Yeah, we got engaged a while ago. It’s been—he’s, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being, but I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who threw balls [footballs, specifically] for a living. I never thought as a little girl, ‘Yeah. I’m going to marry someone who throws balls, yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it, and I’m really impressed. He can throw fast balls, he can throw slow balls, high balls, low balls. When I first met him, I think my dog like pulled me aside and was like, ‘If you don’t date this dude, I will disown you as my mother because the three feet that I run with you when you throw a ball is nothing compared to the marathon I’m able to run with him.’”

A source close to Rodgers spoke to People in February about how shocked his friends were about his fast romance with Woodley. “It was a surprise that they got so close so quickly,” the source said. “I mean, it really felt like one day he was with Danica Patrick, and then suddenly he was with Shailene. It happened super fast.”

“It was so fast that at first, we thought she was just a rebound,” the source continued. “There was no way this could be so serious. Everyone thought it was a casual thing because that’s what he was telling everyone, even when it was clearly not a casual thing.

“Now we realize that it was clearly a lot more serious than they told anyone,” the source added. “All this goes to show that this must be a very special relationship for him and for her. So everyone wishes them happiness.”
