Shake well before use. Apply sunscreen liberally to the face, neck, and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure and before applying makeup. Reapply sunscreen after 40 minutes of swimming, sweating, immediately after towel drying, and least every two hours. For children under six months of age, consult a physician before use.

  • Limit time in the sun, from 10 am – 2 pm
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses

    I LOVE this sunscreen!!! I am an Aesthetician and we use SkinCeuticals products at our facility. In addition to antioxidants, I cannot give enough praise for the Sheer Physical UV defense SPF50. I have oily-combo skin and this sunscreen does not make me any more oily than normal. The fluid-like texture is unique as it is so hard to find a durable physical sunscreen that is not a heavier cream like texture. The packaging of the sunscreen is also ideal as you can throw it in your purse or beach bag with ease and dont have to worry about it spilling. I recommend this physical sunscreen to all of my clients with normal to oily skin, and especially those with hyper-pigmentation.
