Mademoiselle, Michiru Shirohada

Do not shirk your daily skincare.

Your skin in summer…

Even when you’re taking great care…

You get exposed to UV rays without realizing it!

There’s no escaping UV rays… they reflect off surfaces, and so forth.

Even a parasol can’t protect me completely in this season.

In the course of daily life, you can’t help but get exposed to them.

Beware of day-to-day UV rays exposure!

Not that Mademoiselle hangs her own laundry, of course, but…

UV rays lead to pigmentations, freckles, and dull complexion on the skin*!!

To tell you the truth, I’ve been a bit worried about pigmentations lately…

They weren’t here until summer arrived!

Through the summer, your skin has stored up excessive amounts of melanin.

We’re in your skin…

Hi there!

We’re the Melanins! Nice to meetcha!!

Your skin is quite prone to pigmentations, freckles, and dull complexion, Mademoiselle.

Poor metabolism results in skin like this!

Hey, what a comfy spot this is…

Get out of here, you troublesome Melanins!

Of course, your basic daily skincare, UV protection, and brightening care are all important.

Today, we shall focus on…

As a part of your daily skincare…


It is!


A massage improves blood circulation in the face and delivers nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells.

Mademoiselle! The UV rays…!!!
