Is There A Difference Between Sunscreen And Moisturizing Sunscreen?

Yes, there is a BIG difference between these two! However, both should offer full protection from UVA and UVB rays. Without both ingredients, the product is essentially worthless.

But which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at the differences. Classic sunscreen is usually waterproof, which makes it great for swimmers, and it requires very little product for full protection.

Sometimes it can be used as a make-up base but there is no moisturizing function. Sunscreens are often oily, sticky, and leave a white tint on your face. This might be great at Halloween, but not for the rest of the year!

Sunscreens also add an extra step to your skin care routine. Plus, it may be a problem for those with sensitive or acne–prone skin.

Moisturizing sunscreens obviously contain sunscreen, but they also have a number of ingredients to help your skin rebuild and replenish the outer surface. That’s a nice combo!

It also allows you to save a step in your daily skin care routine. Compared to classic sunscreens, the SPF function is often weaker in moisturizing sunscreens. The good news is you can make up that difference with your antioxidant serum.

Combining an SPF, anti-aging ingredients and a moisturizer for your skin type into one product just makes sense, especially for busy women. It’s a lifesaver and a time saver!
