1 It’s de­signed to stay put.

For sun­screen to do its job, the in­gre­di­ents need to stick to your skin. If you don’t wash it off prop­erly, it sim­ply stays there, ex­plains Mah Mei Hui, phar­ma­cist and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of The Skin Phar­macy. This leads to clogged pores and worse, pre­vents skin­care from ef­fec­tively pen­e­trat­ing skin, adds An­ge­line Lim-De Silva, re­gional train­ing man­ager of El­iz­a­beth Ar­den.

2 The hard­est sun­creens to re­move are…

Those with lon­glast­ing or wa­ter-re­sis­tant bases, says Mei Hui. It doesn’t mat­ter if the sun­screen con­tains phys­i­cal or chem­i­cal in­gre­di­ents – it’s the base that determines how long it stays on your skin.

3 Use a makeup re­mover.

Even if you’re wear­ing just sun­screen that day, with no makeup on. A makeup re­mover will lift the sticky in­gre­di­ents off your skin. Mei Hui rec­om­mends that you use it first, fol­lowed by a good fa­cial cleanser.
