Listen, by now, you've heard the one skincare advice you should heed: Apply sunscreen every day. It doesn't matter if you're just indoors or even when it's not exactly sunny. Afterall, it's not just the sunshine that we're seeking shield from—it's the harmful UV rays. Yes, including the ones being emitted from your screens.
Now, we also know that we should be diligent in reapplying suncreen every couple of hours. But we'd be lying if we said we take our own advice religiously. But it's not yet too late in making things right. If like us, you want a more convenient way of applying sun care, then stick (see what we did there?) around! Enter: Sun sticks!
What are sun sticks?
Sunscreen sticks or sun sticks are a mess-free way to apply (and reapply) UV-ray protection. Forget about white casts, greasy residue, or even the nose-turning scents. This solid sunscreen form is more convenient and easy-to-apply, making it an ideal companion for those who are always on the go or those who frequently travel.
How to us sun sticks or sunscreen sticks
Sun sticks are very much straightforward to use. The crucial part is applying the right amount in order for you to have and maintain the promised SPF and broad-spectrum protection on the label. To ensure this, make sure you swipe it on at least four passes in every part of your face. Feel free to rub it in to make sure your skin absorbs the product. It also helps to apply the sunscreen stick once all the products you've applied prior has dried down completely. Doing so guarantees your sunscreen stays put.
