Armada Sport 70
SELECT IF: you spend lots of time outdoors, and want a very lightweight, high performance cream.
Extreme protection for extreme outdoor conditions.
Impressive PFAs are combined with SPFs as high as 70-90 to effectively screen out UVA and UVB rays for active protection against sun-induced skin cancer, photoaging and hyperpigmentation.
This defensive-line formula creates a unique "barrier-film," an invisible virtual "second skin," that stays on skin's surface to maintain protection integrity in and out of water, and while exposed to harsh sun and heat.
Soft, skin-coating silicones give this barrier-film an exceptionally smooth glide and keep it light, so skin stays comfortable.

Shake well before use. Apply liberally on face and body skin, carefully avoiding membranous areas of eyes and nostrils. For best results, apply 30 to 60 minutes prior to sun exposure, especially before highly active sports.
When outdoors, reapply at least every 1 to 2 hours, after swimming or sweating and after towel drying.
UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging and other skin damage. It is important to decrease UV exposure by limiting time in the sun, wearing protective clothing, and using a sunscreen.
UV rays from the sun are made of UVB + UVA. It is important to protect against both UVB + UVA rays to prevent sunburn and other skin damage.
Practice sun avoidance - particularly for children and the photosensitive, and especially between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M. (10:00-14:00) - as much as possible.

I'm big into water sports and my scalp always burns! What do I do?
SPF is not simple addition. An SPF 15 powder plus an SPF 5 blush do not give you an SPF of 20. The total value would still be around SPF 15, or possibly just a little more IF different sunscreen actives are present in the blush that aren't in the powder.
