What if I shower in the evening?
If you shower in the evening leave your bottle of KLĒNSKIN® next to your sink and in the morning wash your exposed areas such as your face, neck, hands, and arms. This will give you a daily base layer of sun protection.
Do the Wash On SPF products feel like a typical sunscreen?
No, it feels like a gentle milky cleanser. When you pat dry your skin will be soft and smooth with no greasy residue.
Can I get sunburned?
Yes. Just like with any sunscreen if you are in the sun for long periods of time it is important to reapply. We recommend this product for everyday incidental sun exposure. (Incidental UV exposure accounts for 80% of sun damage.) Think of it as your daily base layer of sun protection. So remember for extended periods of sun exposure or swimming remember to reapply at least every two hours with a KLĒNSKIN® SPF 50.
What does Broad Spectrum mean?
Broad spectrum means that the active ingredients protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
UVA Rays or ultraviolet A (long-wave) are the Aging Rays. They penetrate deep in the skin and can cause premature aging of the skin and increase your risk of skin cancer. UVA rays are present throughout the year regardless of the season and weather conditions. Additionally these rays can penetrate through the glass so when you are driving or at the office you are still being exposed to harmful rays.
UVB Rays or ultraviolet B (shortwave)- are the Burning Rays. These rays do not penetrate as deeply as the UVA rays but are the rays that cause sunburns and tanning and again increase your risk of skin cancer. UVB rays intensity can vary depending on season, time of day and location.
