“I Want a Sunscreen That Wont Leave My Skin Looking Like a Ghost.”

Physical sunscreen acts as a “physical” block on top of the skin. These types of sunscreens are the safest, most effective way to protect the skin from the sun because they reflect the damaging UV rays from the skin instead of absorbing and neutralizing them within the skin like a chemical sunscreen does.

The most common complaint about physical sunscreens is that they show up on the skin chalky and opaque, which don’t make them desirable to wear everyday. Zinc Oxide is the main active ingredient in physical sunscreen that can cause the annoying white film on the skin. Not all physical sunscreens containing Zinc Oxide will leave behind that annoying, chalky residue.

SkinSpirit Founder and Medical Director, Michael Dean Vistnes states that, “The more skin is exposed to sun, the more free radical damage there will be to the skin. Treat and protect your skin this summer with a skincare regime filled with medically proven anti-aging ingredients, antioxidants and broad-spectrum sunscreen. Antioxidants help fight free radical damage caused to the skin by sun. Broad-spectrum sunscreen protects the skin from both UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays).”
