HOW DOES PHYS­I­CAL SUN­SCREEN

WORK?

Phys­i­cal for­mu­las con­tain ei­ther zinc ox­ide by it­self or com­bined with ti­ta­nium diox­ide. These min­eral block­ers sit on your skin to de­flect UV light, says NYC-based

der­ma­tol­o­gist Joshua Ze­ich­ner,

M.D.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO

AP­PLY IT?

Min­eral for­mu­las

may re­quire more blend­ing (com­pared to a trans­par­ent chem­i­cal sun­screen),

so Ze­ich­ner rec­om­mends a connect-the-dots method. Ap­ply small dots on ex­posed skin. Rub the dots to­gether to connect them and evenly cover

your skin.
