Best Sunscreen for summer : Guerisson UV Defense


Don’t let the type chemical scare you. A chemical sun screen proves to be a better sun block for most of the people, especially for people with sensitive & oily skin types. What makes a chemical sun screen better than physical? It does not sit on top of your skin. Hands down! Guerisson UV Defense is a chemical sun screen which gets readily absorbed into the skin and has a light texture. It leaves no white caste and greasy texture that is a common happening with a physical sunscreen.


Why prefer a chemical sun screen over physical during summer?


Think beyond SPF and PA when hunting down the best sunscreen for summer. We are almost too much concerned about finding the ideal SPF that we pay zero attention towards the type of the sun block. Yes, there are chemical and physical sun screen available in the market. Depending on your life style & skin type you might do better with one than another. Of course there are pros and cons associated with each type.


What is a Chemical Sun Screen?


A chemical sun block as the name mentions, contain chemicals. It could be slightly irritating to some skin types but scores big in summer especially when you are spending time out at pool and beach where water is involved. Guerisson sun spray is a light chemical sun screen that is water resistant. It provides an ideal application on hot scorching sunny days when you expect a lot of sweating. It sinks into the skin, absorbs UV rays and release it from the body by converting it into heat. Guerisson sun spray is easy to apply but remember chemical sun screen starts to break down quickly than its other counterpart so more frequent re application is required.

It also goes under your skin care as it needs to sink in. A chemical sun block requires a 20 minutes duration to be able to prevent you from the sun damage.


What is a Physical Sun Bock?


A physical sun block sits on the top of your skin. It has a thick and moisturising texture which no one is friends with. However the best thing about a physical sun block is its ability to provide immediate protection. Unlike chemical sun screen it needs zero waiting time to work. Before UV rays could be absorbed it reflects them preventing your skin from the said damage.

Guerisson UV Defence Gel Essence is a light physical sunblock that is ideal for face & body. It goes under your makeup but over your skin care.


Is Chemical Sun Screen Better than Physical?


It should be your personal preference that defines which type is better for you. In short, if you can’t wait to step out in the sun; use a physical sun block but on the other hand if you expect you will be sweating & need a water resistant sun protection then try a chemical sun screen.
