Many people prefer spray sunscreen over gels or creams for the sake of convenience. Well, now we have a high SPF water resistant spray to give you that option, even while in the water.
Enjoying the Sun and the Water
Everyone knows how important sunscreen is when it comes to enjoying the sun, especially when you’re going to be in the water. Not only will you be under the sun, after all, but the water will reflect even more sunlight onto you. Because of this, many people eventually notice that they get sunburned more easily when they go in the water than when they don’t. Although that’s sometimes also because they didn’t use the right sunscreen. The importance of using sunscreen in the water has led to a lot of high SPF water resistant spray and sunscreen that will have a harder time being washed off by water. Why not waterproof? Well, good question.
Not Waterproof, Water Resistant
There is no such thing as waterproof sunscreen. In fact, the FDA has released a statement stating that “Manufacturers cannot label sunscreens as ‘waterproof’ or ‘sweatproof,’ or identify their products as "sunblocks," because these claims would overstate their effectiveness. With enough water, any sunscreen will inevitably wash off, or else you wouldn’t be able to shower your sunscreen off. Because of this, you will no longer find real sunscreen products labeled as waterproof anymore. The FDA further explained that “sunscreens also cannot claim to provide sun protection for more than two hours without reapplication,” which is why even water resistance means that you’ll need to reapply the sunscreen after some time in the water.
SPF Water Resistant Spray
So, you might be asking what the point is of water resistant spray if it’s not actually waterproof? Well, that water resistance is exactly what allows sunscreen to remain effective while you’re getting wet. While regular sunscreen might wash off after a few minutes in the sea or the pool, water resistant sunscreen will last for up to two hours thanks to its specific composition. The good thing about the spray version of this sunscreen, is that it’s very easy to apply and reapply. If someone wants to continue enjoying the water after two hours, it’s very easy for them to head out for a second, quickly dry off, and spray themselves with more sunscreen. The Arizona Sun high SPF water resistant spray will allow you to best protect yourself from the sun while also enjoying the sea or the pool.
