We all know we should wear sunscreen, but there are so many different options that it’s hard to know which is best for your skin and for blocking the sun’s harmful rays. Here’s a quick break down:
🔆 Chemical sunscreens are, well, just that! They use a combination of chemicals to absorb and scatter harmful rays to ensure they don’t reach your skin.
🔆 Physical sunscreens typically refer to products containing minerals that act to physically block the sun from your skin.
We believe physical sunscreens are the best way to block both UVA and UVB rays without compromising sensitive skin. That’s why we have so many products that contain minerals, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. You may not even be aware that products you are currently using are protecting your skin! A few examples:
👉🏼 Bombshell Beauty Balm contains titanium dioxide
👉🏼 Our bronzer, Hibernation’s Over, Beaches, contains titanium oxide and zinc oxide
👉🏼 Powder Play Matte Mineral Foundation contains titanium oxide and zinc oxide
With that said, putting on a sunscreen specifically before you apply your makeup is a very good idea. 💡
Our Essential Day Cream contains an organic SPF that’s made from cinnamon leaves. It also hydrates and primes your skin. For power-packed sun protection, choose Vitamin Sea SPF 28, which contains a whopping 20% zinc oxide, along with turmeric and shea butter for an all-in-one skin treatment.
The BEST thing about sunscreen is that it helps prevent signs of aging — including sun spots, thinning skin, fine lines and wrinkles!! The main thing is to be consistent and don’t leave home without it!
