To be effective, sunscreen needs to be fully absorbed into the top layers of the skin, so apply it 15 to 30 minutes before you even step into the sun. Remember to use a full ounce to cover your body and use a formula made specifically for the face if you have specific skin concerns such as anti-aging or blemish control.

skoah products that contain SPF typically have a reduced lipid content in comparison to their non SPF counter parts. This is because SPF ingredients (although they are not technically lipids at a molecularly level) perform as a lipid does in terms of function and feel. They are designed to ‘sit’ on the skin and feel richer than they are.
