Makeups and skin care products are useful all year round. Just because it’s already the rainy season doesn’t mean you should apply these products any less. In fact, consistently using these products—even during the wetter months of the year—will keep your skin healthy and looking fresh.

But of course, you need to have the right products to achieve that glass skin dream of yours. In this rainy season, it is best that you use products that can withstand humidity and rain. So if you’re looking for a sign to go shopping for Korean beauty products—THIS IS IT!

Here are 7 Korean beauty products that you should have this rainy season:

Sunscreen

Sunscreens are not just for sunny days! Even on rainy days, UV rays still penetrate the clouds, and your skill is still exposed to the harmful effects of UV radiation. Keep your skin protected from sunburns, premature aging, and *shudders* even skin cancer by making sure that you are applying—and reapplying—sunscreen.
