Sun stick

One of the most sold sunscreens in summer, the sun stick is stick-shaped, so it is easy to use because it does not need to be applied on the hand and it is small enough to carry.

Because normally sun sticks are flat, it is easy to apply with the tip where you need a delicate spread like under your eyes or nose.

Since the oil on the face can get on the sun stick when rubbing, if you continue to use the sticks, it will have a negative effect on skin hygiene.

Therefore, it is good to apply it while the skin is kept clean, and it is necessary to always wipe off any residues on the sun stick to take care of it.

    I never been one to use sunscreen but in my mid 20’s I started developing very sensitive skin. If I go out in the sun without anything on, I will get a very itchy and uncomfortable rash. It is called Photosensitivity and for anyone with it, you know the struggle! I have tried several options on the market but nothing protected from this rash until I started using virgin coconut oil. It has a natural SPF of about 10 and since my skin is olive tone and rarely burns, it is perfect for me and 100% natural.

    I had no idea there were this many options! I am waiting to get in with my dermatologist to figure out the best sunscreen for my skin given that I have rosacea. He wants to try a baby/infant formula on my skin as he said it tends to be more gentle. It is also a gel which is something I never knew existed up until he told me about it and after reading this. I am going to change my body sunscreen as well. Try a few different types out.
