Celebrate National Sunscreen Day the CoTZ way!

Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. May 27th also marks a crucial date on the calendar for skincare enthusiasts and sun-conscious individuals—National Sunscreen Day! 

Why National Sunscreen Day Matters:

National Sunscreen Day is an annual reminder of sunscreen's vital role in safeguarding our skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. With skin cancer rates rising globally, it’s critical to incorporate sunscreen into our daily skincare routine. By raising awareness about the importance of sun protection, National Sunscreen Day empowers individuals to take proactive steps in protecting their skin and reducing the risk of sun damage.

Sun-Savvy Tips for National Sunscreen Day:

Choose the Right Sunscreen: Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect against UVA and UVB rays. CoTZ Skincare offers a range of mineral-based sunscreens that leave your skin feeling healthy and happy!

Mineral VS. Chemical sunscreens:
While both types of sunscreen protect skin against the sun's harsh rays, choosing a mineral-based sunscreen offers many advantages. Mineral sunscreen is generally considered safer for marine life and coral reefs. Ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are less likely to harm the environment, unlike some chemical sunscreen ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate. Mineral sunscreens are also less likely to cause skin irritation or allergic reactions, making them suitable for sensitive and post-operative skin. Chemical sunscreen filters penetrate the skin and can even make their way into the bloodstream.

Don't skimp on sunscreen: Apply a generous amount to all exposed skin at least 15 minutes before heading outdoors. Remember to reapply every two hours or more frequently if swimming or sweating. CoTZ Silky Foam SPF 30 tinted offers a silky soft, easy-to-apply foam that blends translucent on the skin and is water resistant for up to 40 minutes.

Seek Shade: Whenever possible, seek shade during peak sun hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) to reduce overall sun exposure and lower your risk of sunburn and skin damage. If shade isn’t available, make your own by wearing a hat that will protect your face. Check out our SUNday Funday hat!

Protect Your Eyes and Lips: Remember to protect sensitive areas like your eyes and lips. Wear sunglasses with UV protection and apply a lip balm with SPF to keep your lips hydrated and shielded from the sun's rays. CoTZ Lip Balm is mineral sun protection in a moisturizing balm that keeps your lips' delicate skin protected, soft, and smooth.

As you head to the beach or kick off BBQ season this Memorial Day Weekend, keep your skin protected with CoTZ sun care!
