Say Goodbye to Sunscreen Irritation: The Ultimate Guide to Effective Sunscreen Removal for Sensitive Skin

Is Your Sunscreen Aggravating Your Skin?

Do you feel as if your sunscreen is aggravating your skin? The truth is, it very well could be. For many people, the chalky, dragging feel of mineral sunscreen, which must be applied and reapplied to be effective, can start to irritate their skin. Regularly wearing water-resistant sunscreen to hold up against heat and sweat can cause clogged pores, bumps, and breakouts. It’s also difficult to remove because it’s water-resistant. But we have some solutions!

Proper sunscreen removal is crucial in preventing clogged pores, breakouts, and irritation on your face and body. Here is the best way to remove different types of sunscreen from your face and body:

Face Care: Removing Sunscreen Effectively

Step 1: Cleanse Your Face with Effortless Enzyme Cleansing Oil

The type of cleanser you choose is SO important. You need to use a cleanser that contains oils, instead of a water-based cleanser. This is because water-resistant sunscreens contain emollients that are designed to repel water. If you use a water-based cleanser to remove water-resistant sunscreen, it won’t break it down properly, which means you won’t be cleansing properly.

Apply Effortless Enzyme Cleansing Oil  to DRY skin and gently massage it for 60 seconds. Be sure to include your neck, chest, and upper arms if they need some TLC. After that, wet your fingertips and massage it through again. Then, rinse it off. The most important part comes next. Wipe the skin with a gentle washcloth to lift away everything you just dissolved with the cleanser.

Step 2: Apply an Antioxidant Serum

Since your skin’s natural antioxidant supply has been depleted from being outside (even if you applied a vitamin C serum in the morning), you want to restore it. This means applying an antioxidant-rich serum, high in Vitamin C plant oils like Luminous Liquid.

If it’s the end of the day and you’re headed to bed, give Luminous Liquid a chance to soak in, then follow up with Evening Gold for an added boost of nourishment.

Body Care: Removing Sunscreen Without the Hassle

Step 1: Cleanse Your Body with Our Hand + Body Washes

If you’ve used a mineral-based lotion sunscreen, hop in the shower and lather up all over with any of our hand + body washes. During the summer, we’re particularly partial to Pink Grapefruit + Fruit Enzymes Hand + Body Wash. Our washes are slippery and sudsy, effectively lifting the sunscreen without stripping your skin the way many liquid castile and bar soaps can.

If you have used a water-resistant, oily balm-based sunscreen, apply several pumps of our hand + body wash onto your dry skin before hopping in the shower. This is the same technique we suggest after a pre-shampoo oil treatment because the cleanser does an incredible job of cutting the oil when it goes on dry. If it’s super difficult to spread, wet your fingertips to give it more glide. Then you can hop in the shower, lather up, and rinse. You will definitely feel the difference.

Step 2: Replenish Your Body with Sun Solace Solar Recovery Body Oil

Just as you restored the depleted antioxidants to your face with Luminous Liquid Antioxidant Facial Serum, use our Sun Solace Solar Recovery Body Oil to replenish the rest of your body. It has the added benefit of three different plant infusions—lavender, calendula, and astaxanthin—plus carrot seed, red raspberry, and sea buckthorn berry oil to help your skin recover.

By following these steps, you can ensure your skin stays healthy, clean, and free from the irritation caused by sunscreen. The antioxidant oils help your skin recover from sun exposure. Say goodbye to clogged pores and hello to smooth, happy skin!
