Have you recently switched to an all-natural sunscreen?
Are you loving the feeling of doing something good for yourself?
Have you noticed how good it feels compared to the chemical ones because of all the amazing ingredients?
And now you are wondering how you can gently remove the sunscreen after a full day?
☀️ Natural sunscreens are physical (zinc based) sunscreens and they work by creating a protective layer on top of your skin instead of penetrating your skin as chemical UV-filters do. Unfortunately some chemical ingredients in sunscreens can be more harmful than protective and can go deep into your bloodstream. Therefore bringing up the question why you should be putting on something that is hurting you similarly as much as the sun. But here comes the mineral sunscreen to aid.
☀️ Natural sunscreens are physical (zinc based) sunscreens and they can have different bases, the best bases consist of natural, organic oils, so it doesn’t always wash off as easily as a chemical sunscreen. (This is a good thing! as it keeps the zinc, that is reflecting the damaging UVs off your skin, in place.)
☀️ Zinc sunscreen is easy to remove with an oil cleanser. You can use coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, even olive oil works. (Pour a little into the palm of your hand, then massage it all over your face. Leave it to soak in for a minute or two. Rinse off or use a face washer.)
☀️ Try our wipes! Wotnot face wipes are infused with certified organic oils that work really well to remove zinc based sunscreens. Use one wipe to remove all sunscreen and makeup before using your everyday cleanser, if double cleansing is your thing! 😉 They are also certified compostable, so you can just pop them in your compost bin when you’re done! 🌿
☀️ Now you can have that certainty to have done the right thing for yourself and the planet. It is amazing how far natural skin care products have come and with the right usage they can outperform traditional skin care that may contain harmful ingredients.
