Applying Spray-On Sunscreen: SolRX Spray Sunscreens

Spray-on sunscreens can be just as effective as lotions and creams, as long as you put enough on. But how exactly should you use spray-on sunscreens to get the best effect?

As one of the leading developers of high-performance spray-on sunscreen, here at SolRX, we've created an advanced option that designed to offer prolonged water immersion, profuse sweating, and long hours in the sun. As such, below we discuss the important of proper application of spray-on sunscreens. 

Spray On Sunscreen

Why Use A Spray-on Sunscreen?

Spray-on sunscreen has been the number one choice for many people because it dries quickly, it’s lightweight and it’s easy to put on.

It’ll protect areas that are hard to cover otherwise, like your scalp, if you don’t want to wear a hat, or your back. In addition, people who are hairy may prefer spray-on's because they don’t tend to cling to hairs the way lotions do.

SolRX SPF 70 Spray Sunscreen is an excellent choice for spray sunscreen. The formula is engineered with natural ingredients to keep your skin from drying out. The WATERBLOCK formula (which is 100% paraben-free, non-sticky) and has been proven to provide 480 minutes of protection in and out of the water!

Yes, you read that correctly. That's a spray-on sunscreen that provides 8+ hours of protection!

Make Sure You’re Putting Enough On

A gentle spritz onto your skin isn’t enough. You need to apply enough to the skin to make it glisten. A good general rule is to aim your spray continuously for about six seconds per body part - which is longer than you might think. Don’t rush this process; it’ll still be quick, but you need to make sure you’re thorough.

Do I Really Have to Rub Spray Sunscreen In?

The short answer is yes. No matter whether the instructions call for it or not, you should rub your spray-on sunscreen in. This is because even fine sprays will coat your body unevenly, and rubbing it in ensures that you get more even coverage. Rubbing also helps your body absorb the sunscreen more easily. Make sure that you don’t rub too vigorously, because this may actually reduce the effectiveness of your sunscreen.

Ultimately, you should get the type of sunscreen that you’ll actually use. If you think you won’t use lotions because you (or your squirming child) aren’t patient enough to put it all over your body, then a spray-on might be the best option for you.
