Step 2: Apply and distribute evenly and quickly
A little goes a long way!
- For the face: put a pea size of sunscreen on the tip of your finger.
- Dab some on your cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. (Alternatively, you can rub first in between your fingers then transfer to face, this will help even distribution.)
- Use both hands to gently massage the sunscreen evenly and quickly onto your face to form an even layer – the ultimate shield.
- After just a minute, the sunscreen will dry and stay where you applied it and will not move, so massage quickly and evenly throughout your skin to form your protective layer for the day.
- It will appear a bit white (due to the non-nano safe mineral filters) right after you applied it, so use this opportunity to make sure you have not missed any areas. Apply some more to those areas and massage again.
- Don’t forget the neck and ears! Massage another pea size of sunscreen throughout your neck and onto your ears.
- Repeat this process for other exposed areas.
- Once Harken Derm Ultimate Shield has dried on your skin it will blend in seamlessly and leave your skin hydrated and well protected.
- Repeat application if you spent a lot of time in the water or rubbed your skin with towel. FDA advises every 2 hours or after 80 min in water.
- Use with other measures of sun protection – UPF clothing, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses.
Step 3: Enjoy your day in the sun!
Relax, knowing that your Harken Derm Ultimate Shield sunscreen is protecting you throughout the day, without damaging the environment that you are enjoying. Whether you're on land or sea, Harken Derm has got you covered.

Know your sunscreens
Knowing that you need to apply sunscreen is one thing; understanding how they work, and how the ingredients inside them affect you and your environment, is another thing entirely - and equally important.
