If you’ve experienced stinging from wearing Sunscreens, don’t assume your only option is to not wear them! The majority of sunscreens available include chemical ingredients, most commonly Octinoxate, Octisalate and Homosalate. These work by absorbing first into the skin, then absorbing UV radiation that causes sunburn; but they can trigger redness and discomfort on sensitive skins.
If you suffer from sensitive skin I would recommend physical sunscreens instead of chemical sunscreens as physical sunscreens stay on the skin’s surface to reflect the sun’s rays. Physical sunscreens include Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide and can be found in sophisticated formulations that don’t leave behind a chalky mess.
Personally I like the Super Sensitive FaceBlock SPF 30. This physical sunscreen delivers coverage while taking skin soothing one step further with licorice and green tea to calm irritation.
