7 Things You Should Know about Spray Sunscreen ...


Spray sunscreen is the invention that finally got my oldest son to be willing to wear it, even when I wasn’t around to remind him. However, days after he returned from Boy Scout camp with a nearly empty can, I saw a news report that made me rethink using it again. Sure, spray sunscreen is super convenient, especially if you have wiggly kids, but understanding it better is important so you can make the best choice for yourself and your family. Check out these facts about it and you’ll see what I mean.

1. They Can Cause Allergic Reactions

According to University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority, spray sunscreen is much more likely to cause an allergic reaction than creams or lotions. That’s because most of them absorb the sun’s rays while they protect your skin. In contrast, physical sunscreen deflect the sun’s rays away from your skin, leaving you less prone to a skin reaction. If you ever notice a rash, itching or other allergy symptoms after using a spray sunscreen, stop use and find a different product.
