Chemical sunscreens absorb into your skin to disperse UV rays, but the chemicals can also be toxic to your body and the environment. Current research shows that benzophenones and cinnimates are factors in the death of coral reefs in our oceans. These are among several reasons you should switch from traditional chemical-based sunscreens to a natural, non-nano based mineral choice.
Quite often when someone switches from a traditional sunscreen to a mineral-based brand, they over apply the product or don’t spread it correctly. Then they think it’s too whitening or just doesn’t work as well. People may also feel, because the container sizes are smaller, that they’re getting less for their money. But, it takes far less mineral sunscreen to cover an area than traditional chemical-based types.
So what’s the right way to apply mineral sunscreen?
Work in small sections. Start with a pea to dime-size amount, rubbing it between the palms of your hands and blot it over the areas you want to cover. Rub it in well. Non-nano titanium dioxide is white in appearance, but when applied correctly, you will only see a sheen to your skin. The whitening will also fade quickly. The sheen is actually a perfect indicator to know the product is protecting you. It’s also a great way to be able to see when it’s time to reapply, particularly for parents monitoring children’s exposure time or those going in and out of the water.
Stream2Sea sunscreen is 100% non-nano titanium dioxide and water-based. This means we do not use excessive, heavy oils in our products. These oils can block pores, which may lead to acne. The oils also heat the skin and can leave the wearer feeling too hot and overheated in their activity. When using the blot technique, and working in areas, most people can quickly have perfect coverage without excessive whitening.
If your skin is dry, apply moisturizer to the area, then apply the mineral sunscreen. This will help the sunscreen to spread evenly and well.
