A quick tidbit that I got from watching Nu Ren Wo Zui Da (女人我最大) was that sunscreens which have the symbol PA+++ helps to prevent your skin from getting tan.
According to the Shiseido website:
The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) shows the products ability to protect the skin from UVB (rays that burn). The higher the SPF, the more effect it has in defending against UVB. Shiseido developed a unique PA rating system to show the level of protection against UVA rays (aging rays), with the highest index being PA+++ as extremely effective protection.
Since I tan very easily, this is very interesting information to me. Also, because I recently discovered an age spot under my eye. I’m totally freaked out right now and I know it’s my fault, as I have never worn sunscreen in my entire life. Hopefully, I can start now and save what’s left of my skin.
I just ordered the Mentholatum – Sunplay Skin Aqua Moisture Milk SPF50 (PA+++) from Sasa.com. I also ordered the Sunplay Water Kids SPF30 (PA+++) for my kids, and a bunch of other stuff.
That site is so addictive. I’ve been sitting here staring at the website for hours now. Didn’t even know there’s so much I wanted to buy….until now.
