You know that sunscreen is important into your skincare routine. However, choosing a sunscreen isn’t always that easy, because you have so many options. Whether you’re looking at anti-aging serums or a moisturizing face spray with SPF, learn more about sunscreen, how it works, and what products to use to fight sun damage. 

Types of Sunscreen

Before figuring out how to incorporate SPF into your routine, you should be aware that there are two types of sunscreen. The first type is a physical barrier, sometimes called a mineral sunscreen. This type uses minerals, such as zinc oxide, to reflect the sun’s UV rays from penetrating the skin. Mineral sunscreens are typically thick, although formulas have been developed to make them easier to apply. You have to apply a mineral sunscreen to every inch of skin to be protected. When the barrier is removed, your skin goes unprotected.

The other type of sunscreen is a chemical-based sunscreen. This type of sunscreen works when the organic compounds in the sunscreen convert radiation, such as the sun’s UV rays, into heat. The ingredients vary, but if the directions say to apply 30 minutes before going into the sun, you probably have a chemical sunscreen. You should reapply this type of sunscreen more often because the sunscreen will lose its protective abilities over time.

Look at Your Schedule

Choosing a sunscreen for the day really depends on your own schedule. For a day in the outdoors, you may want to have a mineral sunscreen for the most protection. When you’re wearing makeup to go places, you might want to consider layering chemical sunscreens with argan oil UV protection, a good moisturizer with SPF and a foundation with SPF. Vitamin C serum for oily skin doesn’t add SPF protection, but it can help undo any previous damage from the sun.
