Apparently, there's a technique to taking off sunscreen.

Most of us, myself included, just assumed you get to wash it off just as easily as you slapped it on.

During a bath of course!

Well, we were wrong.

In case you're using your trusty water-based cleanser to wash off sunscreen, you're doing it wrong.

Switch to a cleansing oil and you’ll be amazed.

Lets take it back to science class for a brief moment.

“Sunscreen usually contains oils," says Jessica Weiser, a dermatologist in New York City.

Unless it's marked oil-free, obviously.

“And like dissolves like. When you mix an oil with an oil, they attract each other chemically, so the cleanser will pull oil particles from the surface of the skin.” Says Jessica

In other words, an oil is the best way to dissolve every last drop of the sunscreen on your skin.

Weiser recommends Cleansing Oils.
