SPF is mandatory for everyone everyday, just ask your Dermatologist! One of the biggest reasons we get lines and premature skin damages is from not applying a good sunblock. Are you under the impression that your face powder or makeup is protecting you? Unless there is an actual SPF number on your cream/powder guaranteeing UVA and UVB protection, then the answer is no. You still have to apply one every day *and reapply if you are in the sun all day or at the beach. Are you confused as to when to apply your SPF because you are using face creams and serums? No worries:
- Wash your face.
- Apply any toners or serums and creams.
- Now apply your protective SPF.
Are you doing peels or using retinol, glycolic or any other acids? Then your need for sunblock has just doubled! Every day is the day for SPF. Protection is your #1 defense against aging skin and skin cancers.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU APPLY TO GET THE CORRECT SPF COVERAGE?
SPF isn't going to give you the protection that is specifies on the tube unless you are applying enough of the cream to get the coverage you need! Do not skimp on this. Most will end up applying more than they "think" they need!
For your face/neck/tops of ears, a 1/4 tsp of cream will give you the coverage and proper SPF. If you have a larger face/forehead then apply more. *upwards of a 1/2 tsp.
Grab a 1/4 tsp and fill it with your SPF the first time. See how big that dollup is and apply it. Remember that and always use the same amount.
Another great trick to measure is the Finger method. Run a line of sunscreen the entire length of your Middle Finger. = That is a correct amount of coverage. *Do you also have to cover your head? If so, make that 2 fingers worth of product.
Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply:
- After 80 minutes of swimming or sweating
- Immediately after towel drying
- At least every 2 hours

Q4: Can I use COTZ Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40 if I'm undergoing skin treatments like TCA or Jessners peels?
