Getting Waterproof Sunscreen vs Water-Resistant Sunscreen

Looking for waterproof sunscreen? Well, unfortunately, no sunscreen is truly waterproof. However, our water-resistant sunscreen can be the best way for you to have fun both in the sun and in the water.

Wearing Sunscreen

Everyone knows just how important it is to wear sunscreen whenever you’re outside. Regardless of the weather conditions out there, it’s always good to err on the side of caution and put on some sunscreen in order to avoid any potential burns or damage from the sun. However, it is particularly important when it comes to long-winded outdoor activities that involve the sun and the heat. For example, you will most definitely need to have sunscreen at hand when going to the beach or spending time at the pool, since the point will be to enjoy the sun with less clothing than usual. This also means that your sunscreen will have to come into contact with water.

Is There Waterproof Sunscreen?

The truth is that, despite what some marketing might tell you, there is no such thing as waterproof sunscreen. All sunscreen, when in constant contact with water, will eventually slide off a person’s skin. Different sunscreen lotions’ mileage may vary, but a good rule of thumb is that, should you be in the water, your regular sunscreen will have to be reapplied after twenty minutes. That’s for regular sunscreen lotions, though, which shouldn’t be your go-to sunscreens when it comes to going into the pool or the sea. Here at Arizona Sun, we have an alternative that will help you stay safe from sun damage while in bodies of water without any sort of issue and without having to reapply sunscreen that often.

Water-Resistant Sunscreen

While there is no such thing as waterproof sunscreen, there is water-resistant sunscreen. This means that, while it will eventually fall off and stop protecting you from the sun when in contact with the water, it will do so after a much longer time. With water-resistant sunscreen lotions, you should be able to enjoy protection from the sun for up to 80 minutes, which is quite a lot if you think about it. Our Arizona Sun sunscreen is specifically designed to last for a much longer time while in constant contact with water, making it ideal for when  you’re spending some time at the beach, at the pool, at the hot tub, or at a water park. As long as you reapply our water-resistant sunscreen every eighty minutes or so, you should be enjoying full protection from the sun.
