Spring Cleaning: Does Sunscreen Expire?
Tips From The Pros:
Make Sure Your Sunscreen Is Ready-To-Go In Any Season.
1. Check The Date
Find and check the expiration date on your sunscreen. Expired sunscreen can grow mold or bacteria capable of causing skin infections and ingredients degraded by time can cause skin irritations and allergic reactions.
Our SunScreens are good for 2 or 3 years, and the expiration date is printed on the back of our tubes and containers.
2. The Smell Test
If your sunscreen doesn’t smell, look or feel the way it did when you originally purchased it, then discard it.
3. Keep It Cooler
When poolside or at the beach, store your sunscreen in the shade or in a cooler—it will feel refreshing when reapplying.
