These types of face moisturizers are specially formulated to include sun protection, in addition to hydrating ingredients that can offer additional benefits for all skin types.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Sunscreen Work?
The main function of any sunscreen is to help protect your skin from potential damage caused by sun exposure. For this reason, daily protection against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays is a must-have step in any skincare routine. A broad-spectrum sunscreen formula works by either creating a barrier on the skin’s surface to reflect UV rays using ingredients like zinc oxide (known as “mineral” or “physical sunscreen”), or absorbing UV radiation with chemical-based ingredients (known as “chemical sunscreen”). Whereas some sunscreens can feel heavy and greasy on your skin, CeraVe’s moisturizers with SPF are formulated to feature a lightweight and non-greasy texture, and are non-comedogenic—meaning they don’t have the potential to clog your pores.
What Are the Benefits of a Moisturizer With SPF?A moisturizer with SPF offers both hydration and sun protection in just one step. Since these are two important aspects of maintaining healthy-looking skin for all skin types, these moisturizing products make convenient and effective skincare options. The inclusion of SPF is especially important because of its ability to help protect your skin from the sun’s rays. This, in turn, can help prevent or minimize the damage that may lead to visible signs of early skin aging—such as dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles—as well as skin cancer.
How Often Should I Reapply Sunscreen to My Face?
A broad-spectrum sunscreen should be applied every morning, rain or shine, 365 days per year. When deciding on the right type of sunscreen product to apply, keep in mind that CeraVe’s body and face sunscreens are ideal when in need of additional protection and while spending time outdoors.
Once applied, sunscreen is effective for up to two hours, but will need to be reapplied more frequently when swimming, sweating, or spending extended amounts of time outdoors. CeraVe’s moisturizers with SPF are best applied each morning as part of your A.M. skincare routine. Always apply sunscreen products as directed on the label and seek the advice of a dermatologist when needed.
Do Moisturizers With SPF Expire?Similar to other skincare products, most sunscreen products (including facial moisturizers with SPF) come with an expiration date on their packaging. Read the product label closely, and whenever possible, take extra precautions to avoid leaving your sunscreen products in direct sunlight or extreme heat to preserve their effectiveness.
