I know you already know this, but lemme just say it one more time for the folks in the back: Your skincare routine isn’t complete without sunscreen. That said, I’ll be the first to admit that finding the right sunscreen for your specific skin type and concerns isn’t exactly easy, especially since there’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to SPF. And if you’re still on the hunt for that perfect formula, it might be time to start exploring one of the many excellent Korean sunscreens on the market right now.
Sunscreen is huge in the K-beauty world, and unlike most SPFs, a lot of these formulas are spiked with impressive skincare ingredients (think: niacinamide for brightening, aloe vera for soothing, or lightweight oils for hydrating). The best part? If you aren’t a fan of traditional cream-based SPFs, there’s a ton of variety in the texture and feel of Korean sunscreens, whether you’re looking for something lightweight and matte or soft and glowy. Down to give one a try? Keep scrolling for 13 of the best Korean sunscreens—one of which definitely deserves a spot in your daily lineup
