Best Japanese Sunscreens for Body 2021

Must-Buy Body Sunscreens in Japan

Japanese cosmetics products are popular worldwide today, and among a wide variety of makeup and skin care items, sunscreens are especially in high demand because of their quality, effectiveness and value for the price. In Japan, there are hundreds of sunscreen products on the market with a wide price range, moreover, some products are designed for particular purposes or scenes.

Generally, sunscreens can be used for both face and body, but many Japanese people use several sunscreens daily, depending on which part of body they apply. This is because of several reasons such as some people have sensitive skin, want high skin care/makeup effects on their face or require higher strength on body sunscreen.

I have previously introduced great Japanese sunscreen products including for sensitive skin, acne prone skin and multi-purpose. In this article, I’d like to introduce some of effective and high-quality sunscreens for body with a great longevity and sun protection rates.

Listed products were released within the past few years and have unique and trendy features as well as the latest technology, so if you want to try the latest Japanese sunscreen products, these products are highly recommended! So let’s check them out 🙂
