Without it, your skin is vulnerable to the host of issues sun damage can bring.1 To ensure your skin is getting all the protection it deserves, all of our mineral sunscreen formulas contain three essential ceramides to help restore and maintain your skin barrier and lock in moisture.

Find the answers to some frequently asked questions about sunscreen below.

  • Experts, like the Skin Cancer Foundation, recommend applying roughly two tablespoons of sunscreen to your body—about the size of a shot glass. For your face, it’s recommended to apply a nickel-sized amount. If you’re using a spray or stick, it’s best to apply it liberally over your skin until you see a sheen on your skin’s surface.2

  • Typically, sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours if you’re outdoors, as well as after sweating or swimming. If you’re indoors, away from windows, one application should suffice.3

  • The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) requires that all sunscreens are formulated to last at least three years. Of course, always be sure to keep track of your sunscreen’s expiration date on the package.4

  • Mineral sunscreen, also known as physical sunscreen, helps protect your skin by forming a barrier to block the sun’s damaging UV rays. This type of SPF contains ingredients such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or a combination of the two.
