Chemical vs. Mineral Sunscreen

Chemical vs. Mineral Sunscreen

Just like the sun affects different skin types in different ways, the type of sunscreen we use determines how the sun impacts our skin. While chemical sunscreen absorbs UV rays, 100% mineral, or physical, sunscreen forms a protective barrier on the skin. It acts as a UV-blocking shield, making it a great choice for daily sensitive skin protection.

How to Apply Cetaphil Sunscreen

How to Apply Sunscreen

Whether you’re running a quick errand or spending a full day outdoors, it’s important to apply sunscreen every day, at least 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Before reaching for sunscreen, prep skin with a layer of lotion. When applying sunscreen, take your time, spread evenly on exposed skin and rub in a circular motion to avoid a white cast. And don’t be stingy. Most people only use 25%-50% of the recommended amount of sunscreen. Remember to reapply at least every two hours or 80 minutes after swimming or getting wet.

Sun Care Tips from Dermatologists

Sun Care Tips from Dermatologists 

  • Daily coverage of at least SPF 30 is recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology because it is proven to be a sufficient amount of protection to reduce adverse effects of sunlight as well as antiaging and skin cancer prevention.

  • Be sure to cover high exposure areas like face (ears included) as well as neck and hands daily.

  • Make sure your lip balm also has SPF. Cancer in this area can be particularly dangerous. Also, sun protective clothing like hats and sunglasses is a great accompaniment to sunscreen.
