About COTZ Flawless Complexion SPF 50
Cotz Flawless Complexion SPF 50
with Light tint.
We find this is an excellent product for those that need a bit more SPF coverage. Perfect for those performing medium depth peels such as TCA and Jessners. This will give you the protection you need when you go outdoors. There is a light tint with this cream that many enjoy as it adds just a hint of color to your skin. *Don't worry though if your skin is darker, as it is not enough coloring to make a noticeable difference in your skin tone.
This does NOT leave a white haze on your skin. It blends perfectly with your skin tone.
We only recommend physical barriers here. Chemical SPF's have to penetrate into the skin. This is not necessary. A physical barrier such as Zinc Oxide will create a layer on the skin which will reflect the sun's damaging rays away.

This Cotz SPF is Dermatologist Recommended. 100% physical barrier sun block that will not clog pores or cause a greasy, oily feeling.
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 40 minutes of swimming or sweating
- Immediately after towel drying
- At least every 2 hours
Children under 6 months: Ask a doctor
