Chemical sunscreens

Chemical sunscreens are usually very light and pleasant to use, and they do not leave behind a white layer on the skin (white cast), which may make it easier to apply the necessary large amount of the product. The chemical sunscreen filter absorbs the sun's harmful UV rays, preventing them from damaging the skin. Both chemical and physical sunscreens work and last just as well, as long as they are used correctly and added often enough (a good basic guideline for the face is a teaspoon every two hours when in the sun).

Sunscreen for the face

Chemical sunscreens are usually very light and pleasant to use, and they do not leave a white layer on the skin.

Physical sunscreens are not absorbed by the skin, and are therefore often richer in texture. They may also suit sensitive skin better than chemical ones.

The Hybrid composition is typical of Korean sunscreens, which achieves a beautiful result with slight coverage, and a light and fresh composition.

Physical or chemical sunscreen?

Korean sunscreens use both a chemical i.e. organic and a physical i.e. inorganic (mineral-based) sun protection filter. Often, to get the best result and protection, Korean sunscreens have combined both = hybrid sunscreen. In this way, a beautiful final result that slightly covers the pores is achieved, as well as a light and fresh composition. 

Physical, otherwise known as inorganic or mineral sunscreen, contains minerals such as zinc oxide and titanium oxide, in the list of ingredients these can be found e.g. with the names Titanium Dioxide or Zink Oxide. Physical sunscreen scatters UV radiation away from the skin to some extent (about 5%), in addition to the fact that the composition absorbs harmful UV rays, just like chemical sunscreens. But unlike chemical sunscreens, physical sunscreens do not absorb into the skin and may therefore have a richer texture. For the most sensitive skin and babies, a physical sunscreen may be a better option than a chemical one.

Chemical or organic sunscreens are usually very light and pleasant to use, and they do not leave behind a white layer on the skin (white cast), which may make it easier to apply the necessary large amount of the product. The chemical sunscreen filter absorbs the sun's harmful UV rays, preventing them from damaging the skin. Both chemical and physical sunscreens work and last just as well, as long as they are used correctly and added often enough (a good basic guideline for the face is a teaspoon every two hours when in the sun).

Korean sunscreen is not a concept for nothing, but there is certainly a suitable and pleasant product for everyone among these. Remember that whatever sunscreen is your favorite, the most important thing is that you apply enough of it (about a teaspoon on the face) and also remember to add more cream throughout the day 💕
