Yes. Generally, applying sunscreens with SPF 25 liberally on skin can offer sufficient protection for outdoor activities. We recommend applying sunscreen liberally 15 minutes before going outside. Frequent reapplication (at least every two hours) is recommended if you are directly under the sun, or immediate replenishment after swimming or excessive sweating is also necessary.
Yes, UV rays can penetrate through windows as well. We recommend you to apply sunscreen in the day even though you may be staying indoors most of the time.
Our skin secretes sweat and sebum and combined with physical contact throughout the day, it is inevitable that our layer of sunscreen may be worn off. Hence, it is recommended to reapply sunscreen frequently as and when needed. If you are outdoors, reapply at least every two hours. Immediate replenishment after swimming or excessive sweating is also necessary.
If you are outdoors and do not have any makeup on, use a facial tissue to dab away sweat or any excessive sebum on the surface. Use an oil blotter if necessary. Follow with your sunscreen reapplication.
If you are wearing makeup, we recommend to reapply sunscreen with a cushion applicator after removing any visible dirt on the face. This method affects your makeup less and gives a more even coverage. Depending on your condition, you may wish to touch up on your makeup after.
