HOW MUCH SHOULD I USE?
SETT's formulas are thick & substantial. So while a little goes a long way, you should always apply plenty, and reapply often.
Most people don’t use enough sunscreen in order to achieve the full level of protection; Industry bodies recommend using 6 shot glasses worth to cover an entire grown adult’s body. Also make sure you reapply at least every two hours, or more often if you are in the water, sweating or toweling off.
The Zinc lotion and face sticks are likely to leave a visible white layer which you can use to see where you have applied the sunscreen and any missing patches. This whitening is primarily because of using non-nano Zinc Oxide as a mineral blocker on top of the skin (not a chemical blockers that sinks into the skin) so you should see this effect with all natural sunscreens, not just SETT.
For our After Surf and Surf Rash Cream products, you will know when your skin needs more - if it soaks in super fast, your body is asking you for more of the natural goodness to help it stay in prime condition.
