As long as you see the appearance of these two ingredients that is undoubtedly physical sunscreen, followed by physical sunscreen texture is thicker, easy to whitish, oily, but physical sunscreen is more suitable for sensitive skin use.
Chemical sunscreen refers to the absorption of ultraviolet rays, converted into heat and then released to achieve the sunscreen effect. Usually chemical sunscreen texture is lighter, easy to push away, but the stimulation will also be greater.

Some people apply many layers, from barrier cream, sunscreen, sunscreen foundation and powder, but because they have to apply multiple layers of products with moisturizing effect and to create a light feeling of makeup, they do not use enough and do not really achieve the effect of sunscreen. Generally, about two fingers are needed for the face and neck. Don’t neglect the skin on the back of your neck, behind your ears, neck and hands.
In addition to sun screen, we can also protect ourselves from the sun through sunscreen, hats, umbrellas and other tools.
