Why Is Applying Sunscreen Important for Your Face?

Protection Against Harmful UV Rays

Sunscreens shield your face and body from the damaging effects of UV rays, preventing premature aging, sunburns and the risk of skin cancer.

Long-Lasting Hydration

Our multifaceted daytime moisturizers combine replenishing, hydrating and restoring ingredients with both mineral and synthetic sunscreen to provide robust, broad-spectrum protection for your face. By incorporating a moisturizer with SPF into your routine, you ensure that your skin receives essential hydration while shielding it from the sun's harmful rays.

How Often Should You Reapply Sunscreen on Your Face

For optimal protection, it is important to reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially when you are exposing your face to direct sunlight or engaging in activities that may cause sweating or rubbing off the product. Regular reapplication ensures continuous sun protection throughout the day.

How to Use Sunscreens and Daytime Moisturizers

Tips on How to Properly Apply Sunscreen and Daytime Moisturizer

  • Start with clean, dry skin. Apply sunblock or daytime moisturizer on your face as the final step of your skin care routine.
  • Take a sufficient amount of product and apply it evenly to your face and exposed areas of your body.
  • Gently massage the product into your skin, ensuring full coverage.
  • Remember to apply sunblock or moisturizer to commonly overlooked areas such as your ears, neck and the back of your hands.
  • Allow the product to absorb fully before applying makeup or going outside.
  • Reapply sunblock every two hours or more frequently if you are sweating heavily or engaging in water activities.

Recommendations for Incorporating Sunscreen into Your Daily skin care Routine

Make sunscreen a non-negotiable part of your daily skin care routine with these recommendations:

  • Apply sunblock or daytime moisturizer on your face as the last step of your morning skin care routine, after cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
  • Consider using makeup products that contain sunscreen or applying a primer with SPF for additional sun protection throughout the day.
  • Keep a travel-sized sunscreen or moisturizer in your bag for easy reapplication when you're on the go.

Frequently Asked Questions about Our Sunscreens and Daytime Moisturizers

What is the difference between mineral and synthetic sunscreen?

Mineral sunscreens contain natural minerals such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which act as physical barriers to reflect and scatter UV rays. Synthetic sunscreens, also known as chemical sunscreens, absorb UV rays and convert them into heat. Both types provide effective sun protection for your face, and the choice depends on personal preference and skin compatibility.

What SPF level is best for everyday use?

For everyday use, an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen is recommended to provide adequate sun protection against both UVA and UVB rays for your face. Higher SPF values offer added protection for prolonged sun exposure or intense outdoor activities.

Will sunscreen cause breakouts or clog pores?

Our sunscreens and daytime moisturizers for the face are specifically formulated to not clog pores or contribute to breakouts (commonly referred to as non-comedogenic). We understand the concerns of individuals with acne-prone skin and have carefully developed our products to ensure that they won't exacerbate acne or cause blemishes.

Do I need to use a separate moisturizer if my sunscreen already has moisturizing properties?

As our sunscreens have moisturizing properties, it is perfectly fine to use them alone without an additional moisturizer. However, depending on your skin's specific hydration needs, it may be beneficial to use a separate moisturizer before applying your sunscreen. Moisturizers are formulated to nourish and hydrate the skin, and can provide additional benefits beyond sun protection. 

Can I wear makeup over my sunscreen?

Absolutely! You can apply makeup over your sunscreen. It is important to allow the sunscreen to fully absorb into your skin before applying any makeup on your face. Look for lightweight, non-comedogenic makeup products that won't compromise the effectiveness of your sunscreen. Additionally, consider using mineral-based or powder-based makeup for an added layer of sun protection.

Are Paula's Choice sunscreens tested on animals?

No, we are proud to be a cruelty-free brand. We do not conduct animal testing, and our sunscreens and daytime moisturizers are certified cruelty-free. We are committed to providing ethical skin care solutions that prioritize the well-being of animals.
