Does waterproof sunscreen really exist?

Friday, June 28th, 2013

The 4th of July long weekend is around the corner and it will be hot. That calls for being outdoors and swimming which means you need waterproof SPF protection. Does waterproof sunscreen really exist?

No, but some sun protection products are water resistant and have been tested to last 40 or 80 minutes when swimming or sweating (read the label). No matter the claim, sunscreens need to be reapplied every time you towel dry and every two hours. Keep this in mind when you and your loved ones are out celebrating America’s Independence.
