Why Is Powder Sunscreen So Popular?

When it comes to sun safety, it's important to wear sunscreen daily, but which is the best for your skin? Chemical sunscreens protect from UVA and UVB rays — however, they can irritate sensitive skin, clog your pores, and require a wait time before they begin working. Although some formulas are better than others, consumers have been moving away from chemical ingredients for a safer alternative known as powder sunscreen. 

Powder sunscreen has become increasingly popular because it's naturally broad spectrum. It contains active mineral ingredients such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, which deflect and scatter damaging UV rays away from the skin. Physical sunscreen protects your skin as soon as it is applied, with no wait time. It is also less likely to cause breakouts or irritation, especially for those with rosacea or sensitive skin. 

Brush On Block® is a powder sunscreen that is safe and effective for children and adults. Using the portable brush, you can apply Brush On Block under or over makeup in the morning and then reapply as needed, throughout the day. There is no greasy texture, and it won't run or sting your eyes or soak into your clothes. The best part is it goes on translucent so your normal skin tone won't be affected. 

Even if you're used to using a chemical sunscreen, it's worth trying a powder sunscreen for comparison. Once you use it, you may never go back to the white, sticky stuff again. Let Brush On Block change the way you protect your skin.
