Step 1: Test it on the top of your hands
(they need sunscreen too!)

Note: before first use, remove the silver seal

Put a pea size of sunscreen on the top of your hand and see how far it spreads.

You’ll see it spreads really far.

We squeezed a lot of goodies into a small amount of sunscreen, so you can use a LOT LESS of Harken Derm Ultimate Shield sunscreen compared to most others.

Step 2: Apply and distribute evenly and quickly
A little goes a long way! 
  1. For the face: put a pea size of sunscreen on the tip of your finger. 
  2. 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.)
  3. Use both hands to gently massage the sunscreen evenly and quickly onto your face to form an even layer – the ultimate shield.
  4. 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.
  5. 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. 
  6. Don’t forget the neck and ears!  Massage another pea size of sunscreen throughout your neck and onto your ears. 
  7. Repeat this process for other exposed areas.  
  8. Once Harken Derm Ultimate Shield has dried on your skin it will blend in seamlessly and leave your skin hydrated and well protected. 
  9. 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.
  10. Use with other measures of sun protection – UPF clothing, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses.

Know your sunscreens
