A little goes a long way; you can see exactly where you’re applying it.

Step 1: Shake to mix

Our sunscreens lack chemicals to keep ingredients homogenized, so a bit of liquid may squirt from tube varieties before the sunscreen appears. This is OK, and there’s nothing wrong with your sunscreen. Just close the lid and knead or shake the tube.

Step 2: Dot sunscreen onto skin in sections

Put sunscreen on your fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the face. Dot and spread with fingertips or a makeup sponge. If too dewy on the skin, use a facial powder.
