When I finally started wearing sunscreen daily in my mid-20s, I didn’t pay much attention to its removal. I just assumed my cleanser would take it all off. It did. Until I switched to mineral sunscreens (aka sunblocks).
Much heavier than chemical sunscreens, they stubbornly stick to the skin. My faithful cleanser was no match for them. Some traces of sunscreen would be left on my skin, clog my pores, and cause those odious zits! Argh!
I was so tempted to switch back to chemical sunscreen, but I didn’t. Mineral sunscreens are more effective and gentler, and I didn’t want to give them up. So, I changed the way I cleanse my skin.
