About COTZ Mineral Stick SPF 45
COTZ Mineral Stick SPF 45 with Light tint.
When you are out and about - and NEED a touchup - this is the BEST product to give you the SPF coverage you require. Remember, you should be RE-applying your SPF after 2 hours outdoors. Thick creams can be messy, but this gorgeous mineral stick is super easy to use, and it will give you a luminous glow. *Can you use it as your first layer of the day? Certainly! Your choice of course.
This has a sheer tint to it, so this will match anyone's skin tone without an issue. And - it's SAFE! Mineral sun screens sit on top of the skin and reflect the sun's rays away from your tender skin. Other chemicals penetrate Into the skin - where they can hold heat - that could cause more pigmentation - especially if you are suffering with melasma. Mineral SPF's are always safer.
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 sheer stick 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.
