The proper scientific terminology for UV filters is natural (chemical, comparable to avobenzone, octocrylene or oxybenzone) or inorganic (bodily, comparable to titanium dioxide or zinc oxide).
Each varieties work by absorbing the rays and turning them into warmth, however with inorganic aka bodily sunscreens, between 5% and 10% of incoming rays are mirrored and scattered.

With natural filters (‘chemical’ within the conventional, non-scientific sense), the UV rays are principally absorbed and was warmth within the pores and skin.

At all times apply final after moisturiser, earlier than make-up – until in any other case acknowledged.
Reapply each two hours if in energetic solar (on vacation, sunbathing, typically being outdoors all day).
Reapply after swimming or extreme sweating/drying off with a towel.
