My current sunscreen is waterproof, but it feels sticky and greasy. Also, I don't want to use it unless I know that I will be out sweating in the sun as I wear makeup and don't want to put sunscreen over my makeup unless I have to. Is there a waterproof sunscreen that doesn't feel greasy and would go well over makeup?
Sun Protection Needed
Dear Sun Protection Needed,
All waterproof sunscreens will leave a slight residue on the skin in order to protect it. However, some sunscreens will feel much less greasy and sticky than others.
Below are some top rated nongreasy sweatproof, waterproof or water resistant sunscreens recommend by consumers at drugstore.com and makeupalley.com. It's best to choose a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15, but select an SPF 30 or higher (SPF 45 or 50) if you burn easily. Also, try putting waterproof sunscreen on before applying your make-up.
