FAQs

How to use sunscreen daily?

 

Wearing sunscreen daily doesn't have to be a burden, you can easily integrate it into your usual skincare routine and apply on-the-go. Here are a few key daily sunscreen practices to follow: 

 

  • Your daily sunscreen routine should include applying sunscreen at least every two hours in order to keep your skin consistently protected.
  • You want to apply sunscreen before you even go outside. With mineral sunscreen, you can apply it as you’re walking out the door but with a chemical sunscreen, you’ll need to apply it about 15 to 20 minutes before you’re ready to go.
  • Make sure you cover areas that are especially sensitive, like behind your ears, under your eyes, etc. 

 

Don’t forget to bring sunscreen with you when you leave the house so you can reapply as needed.

Is it bad to wear sunscreen every day?

 

No, not as long as you’re wearing a safe sunscreen. Sunscreen that’s considered safe is one that’s free of chemical ingredients that have the potential to cause harm to your skin. The potential problem with chemical sunscreen is that since it needs to absorb into your skin to provide protection, that makes you vulnerable to the potential that it could enter your bloodstream, exposing you further to these chemicals. 

 

So, it boils down to chemical vs. physical sunscreen. For a safe sunscreen for everyday use, a mineral sunscreen is an alternative that uses safe, natural ingredients. Fortunately, Colorescience has a broad selection of mineral sunscreens that you can use as your daily sunscreen, knowing that your skin is protected without exposing unnecessary chemicals to your body.

 

You also want to consider the impact on the environment. For example, a biodegradable sunscreen can keep you safe while also preventing further chemical exposure to the environment around you.

What is the best sunscreen for everyday use?

 

When trying to find the best sunscreen for everyday use, there are a few important factors to consider: 

 

  • SPF level: You need to find a sunscreen with a high enough SPF for everyday use. Typically the standard is SPF 30 or higher—especially if you’re going to be outside at all.
  • Broad-spectrum: To protect you against both UVA and UVB rays, you need a broad-spectrum sunscreen. This is important because SPF only guards against UVB rays, but to prevent problems like sun damage and early signs of aging, UVA protection is needed.
  • Ingredients: Does the sunscreen include chemical ingredients that might cause harm? Mineral sunscreen is usually recommended over chemical sunscreen because it doesn’t need to absorb into your skin to work. The danger of chemical sunscreen is that there is a risk that it could reach the bloodstream or have a negative reaction with your skin. Additionally, if you have sensitive skin, it’s best to avoid fragrance-free sunscreen, as everyday use can cause irritation and discomfort. Our sunscreens are made with natural, mineral-based ingredients that are gentle on your skin.
  • Convenience: For many of us, the likelihood that we’re going to stick to a habit depends on how easy it is to maintain, the same goes for daily sunscreen wear. To increase the likelihood that you’re going to put on sunscreen everyday and throughout the day, it’s important to find a sunscreen for everyday use that’s convenient for you.

 

Here are some options that Colorescience carries that meet the above criteria and make for a reliable sunscreen for everyday use:

 

 

In addition to UV protection, our sunscreens feature EnviroScreen® Technology to guard against environmental factors such as pollution, blue (HEV) light, and infrared radiation.

Is there any sunscreen that lasts all day?

 

No, sunscreen is not designed to be a single-application solution that lasts the entire day. However, it’s a common misconception that, by wearing SPF 100, you’re completely covered and don’t need to worry about sunscreen—that’s simply not the case. No matter what SPF level your sunscreen is, you’ll need to reapply regularly throughout the day. 

 

In most cases, sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least every two hours. However, if you’re going to be engaged in activities that make you sweat consistently or require you to be submerged in the water, you’ll need to apply more frequently. Specifically, every 40 to 80 minutes. 

 

How frequently you need to apply when swimming or sweating depends on how waterproof your sunscreen is. The FDA distinguishes these levels as “water resistant” which lasts 40 minutes or “very water resistant” which lasts 80 minutes. Colorescience waterproof sunscreen lasts up to 80 before requiring reapplication. 

 

Whatever the circumstances may be, reapplying in a timely manner should be a top priority throughout your day. 
 

How to take waterproof sunscreen off?

 

Unlike waterproof makeup, waterproof sunscreen is easy to take off. Our mineral-based waterproof sunscreen rests on your skin while wearing and is designed to provide protection for approximately 80 minutes when exposed to water (or heavy sweating). As such, you can easily remove waterproof sunscreen at the end of the day in the shower, by cleansing your face, or using our hydrating cleansing cloths that can gently remove any remaining residue. 

 

Colorescience has a variety of easy-to-apply, daily sunscreen solutions that you can take with you on-the-go, including our sunscreen sticks and brush-on mineral powder sunscreen. Find your go-to everyday sunscreen by shopping our selection and enjoy the peace of mind that you’re using safe, mineral-based sun protectant that can guard against UVA and UVB rays as well as environmental factors.
