- Physical sunscreens reflect and scatter UV rays to prevent sun damage, while chemical sunscreens absorb UV rays in order to protect the skin. This sunscreen uses a combination of both physical and chemical ingredients to provide optimal sun protection.
Treat this as the last step in your daytime skin-care routine, after serum and moisturizer and before makeup. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure, reapplying as needed.
Reapplying your sunscreen is just as crucial as applying it in the first place. Be sure to reapply every two hours or after doing anything that could compromise its level of protection, such as sweating or toweling off after a swim.
To protect your skin from sun sensitivity increased by retinol, apply this sunscreen after the VI Derm Beauty Retinol Age-Defying Treatment Moisturizer.
