Best zinc oxide Sunscreen Face

Flashback to the 1980s, when summer meant that you'd see many noses covered in white (or even neon) zinc oxide. Now, that feels as retro as muscle-man tank tops, giant cell phones, and other Saved By the Bell-era trends that have since been rendered unnecessary. But thirty years ago, the ozone hole had just been discovered (in 1984, to be precise) and beach-bound people were feeling nervous. So, by 1987, companies like Zinka were making it "fun" to protect yourself from the sun's radiation, even if that sort of "fun" sounds sorta awful now. Zinc was a good innovation because it deflected the rays like a barrier, whereas other sunscreen ingredients just absorbed the bad stuff with chemicals.

Why then, if zinc works so well, do we not see those pasty noses today? Well, it turns out that the element is still the most important ingredient in your sunscreen, but technology has rendered it invisible: Zinc is now broken into small enough molecules that it spreads on clear, straight from the bottle. "You just need one good sunscreen for your face and it should have Zinc in it, " affirms Jennifer Stein, an assistant professor of dermatology at NYU's Langone Medical Center. "And be sure to put on enough. Many people don't do that." So this summer, check the back of the bottle first. Then don't forget your ears.
