Sunscreens Types and Differences
Nowadays choosing the right sunscreen is very hard yet so easy, hard because there are so many types to choose from, and easy because you will find your perfect sunscreen at the drugstore or any makeup shop now. So, I will list down the types the sunscreen for you and explain the difference between the most common 2 types of it.
2- Built-in Sunscreen
6- Sweat or water-resistant
The 2 types you will see the most are the Mineral and the Chemical, so what is the difference and what should you choose,
Well they both work in similar ways, but each has its own advantage and disadvantage
• Pros: full protection from UVA and UVB rays; effective immediately; will not clog pores
• Cons: frequent reapplication is needed; may leave a white cast on the skin
• Pros: less product is needed per application to offer protection; thinner and easier to spread on the skin; applies invisibly
• Cons: allows some UVA exposure; requires time to be effective around 20 min; can exacerbate acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation; frequent application required

What is the right amount to use?
Most people under-apply their SPF. The correct amount of product to cover your face neck, ears, and upper part of your chest should be 5g, its around 1 teaspoon.
Can you rely on the built-in sunscreen in your moisturizers or foundations?
This one could be a great option if you are not planning to be outside for a long time, so you don’t need that much protection, but it’s always preferable to add on top of you your real sunscreen for better protection.
What level of SPF do I need?
If you’re inside most of the day with just short intervals in the sun, you can use a sunscreen or cosmetic product with an SPF of 15 or higher. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, especially when and where the sun is strongest, you need an SPF 30 or higher, water-resistant sunscreen
