#BuroGetaway: The best suncare to protect your skin when you’re on an island vacation

Ready to hit the beach and soak up some vitamin D for your upcoming island vacay? We suggest getting your hands on new makeup for an effortless glow alongside updating your summer wardrobe to nail that perfect #ootd. But don’t forget the most important skincare in your beauty bag—suncare. Ahead, score these SPF-infused skin saviours for dark-spot free, protected skin:

Japanese skincare brand Three has launched the new Balancing Body UV Protector that offers SPF50 that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a sticky residue. Emollient ingredients include essential and botanical oils that will leave your skin smooth too. This addition also comes in the skincare version—the Balancing UV Protector R that protects skin from external stimuli such as UV rays, air pollutant and free radicals.


Kosé Sekkisei White UV Emulsion ranks high on our list for its multifunctional properties. True to its name, it keeps your skin moisturised while preventing age spots and freckles—all with added SPF50+/PA++++ protection so you don’t have to worry about sun exposure. We’re loving its formulation that has sebum-absorbing powder so mid-day shine dilemmas will be a thing of the past.


Supergoop has finally hit our shores, and one of its bestsellers is the City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 that has a host of anti-ageing properties along with sun protection. Vitamins E and B5 help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while UVA and UVB properties reduce UV-induced redness and skin discolouration—making it high on our must-have list.

For a dose of whitening and moisturising, try out SK-II Whitening Source Derm-Definition UV Lotion for its formula that has amino acids and antioxidants to prevent damage to your skin’s protective barrier. It also has SPF50/PA+++ for adequate protection from UVA and UVB rays.

Traveling to a tropical island doesn’t mean that your skin is free from environmental aggressors. Pack along Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening UV Protector that has SPF50+/PA++++ to protect the skin from UV rays and fine dust. It boasts a lightweight texture that blends into the skin easily and smoothly, and is available in two shades: Soft Glow for a natural effect, and Soft Peach for a dash of pink to even your skintone.
