Which Sunscreen Type is Right for Your Skin?

September 15, 2019

No matter your skin type, sunscreen is an essential part of your daily skin routine. You may think that there is nothing out there in the world of sunscreen that is right for you, but we promise there is!

Oily Skin

So many of us have oily skin, and fortunately it’s not the end of the world for sun protection. Not all sunscreens are oily and greasy. In fact, applying a sunscreen with a nice, matte finish helps control the oils in your skin.

COTZ Prime & Protect Tinted and Non-Tinted are the perfect sunscreens for your oily skin. With a smooth application and matte finish, you can be protected from the sun and not feel greasy. Did I mention that they are also non-comedogenic? These sunscreens will not clog your pores, and are non-oily and non-greasy. Perfect!

Dry Skin

The best of us have dry skin. Sometimes because of the dry cold weather, and sometimes because of the dry hot weather. No matter the season, sun protection is so important. Therefore, the use of a creamy, moisturizing sunscreen is perfect for you. COTZ Flawless Complexion and Face Moisture are both moisturizing and provide sheer coverage to even out your skin tone.

Darker Skin Tones

For all our ladies and gentlemen with darker skin tones, do not stop reading this! You do need sunscreen. We love you, and we want you to be protected too. We hear the typical, “People with darker skin tones have all that extra melanin, so they are already protected from the sun.” Or “You can’t get a sunburn with dark skin.” False, and false! Although your dark skin tone does contain melanin which protects your skin from the sun a bit, you aren’t completely protected. You, like everybody else, can get a sunburn. It may take longer out in the sun than your pale pals, but it is a real concern.

Sensitive Skin

Is your skin irritated by just about everything you put on it? Do you have rosacea, allergy-prone, or acneic skin? That’s okay. The most important thing you can do is stay away from sunscreens that have chemical sunscreen filters, preservatives or fragrances. All of the above can be extremely irritating to the skin. Furthermore, stay away from sunscreens that tend to be drying or greasy. A light lotion-based sunscreen is going to be your golden ticket. COTZ Sensitive is an elegant mineral sunscreen that protects from UV rays, while also soothing sensitive and easily irritated skin.
