Sunscreen must be applied religiously, and you can find not only one but two different types of sunscreen from Klairs! One is physical, and one is chemical!
Chemical sunscreen and physical sunscreen both have their own benefits and drawbacks. The preference between the two highly depends on one’s personal skin types, conditions and preference in texture and effect on the skin. Chemical sunscreen usually 1) contains organic compounds and 2) is absorbers of UV rays as it absorbs into the skin when applied. Think of it as a sun protector that protects the skin from UV rays with chemical reaction beneath the surface of the skin. Chemical sunscreens tend to 3) come with lighter and non-sticky texture and 4) spreads more easily than physical sunsreen. However since it absorbs into the skin and it has the chance to clog the pores and must be applied minutes before you step out to the sun.
For physical sunscreen, it 1) contains active mineral ingredients such as titaninum dioxide or zinc dioxide which functions on the surface of the skin. It 2) offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays and is generally a broad-spectrum. Since it 3) works on the surface of the skin and doesn’t seap into the skin, it is 4) less likely to be pore-clogging. If you are in a rush reach out for a physical susncreen to make sure your skin is protected from the rays of sun. However, unlike chemical sunscreen, it can rub off or be removed due to sweats so reapplication every few hours is a must. Also, expect to witness a tone-up effect on the skin when it comes to physical sunscreen. The level of tone-up differs among different sunscreen products.
