In this three-minute guide, we will quickly show you how to combine moisturizer and sunscreen in your everyday routine.
SAFESCREENs are mineral-based sunscreens mostly containing non-nano zinc oxide as the principal UV filter. As a general rule, mineral sunscreens are not as moisturizing as chemical sunscreens. This is because of the natural activity of mineral sunscreens, which act on the surface of the skin by scattering the light rather than by absorbing light as chemical sunscreens do.
So the best way to get started on your SAFESCREEN® is to use it for the first 3 days, WITHOUT a moisturizer. Then assess the skin for dryness after cleansing off the sunscreen at bedtime. If there is no dryness, you can continue to use it without a moisturizer and reassess it after 4 more days, that is, at the end of 1 week. If you feel that your skin is comfortable, you can continue to use SAFESCREEN® without any moisturizer. You need to repeat the assessment again in the same way at 3 weeks, 6 weeks and 12 weeks. After this, you mostly know that you and your SAFESCREEN® have settled down well without a moisturizer. You can reassess at any time, though, depending on the conditions of your environment like weather changes, vacation and so on.
If you feel any dryness on day 3, you should consider adding on a moisturizer before you put on your sunscreen. The options are as below 👇
