How often should I reapply sunscreen if I have oily skin?

I'm wondering how often I should apply my sunscreen (biore watery essence SPF 50 PA++++)? I usually put sunscreen on in the morning after cleansing and moisturizing, but I'm wondering if I should reapply later when my skin has reached it's peak oiliness. It gets oily within about 2 hours (enough oil to make my face shiny).


  • According to FDA guidelines you should reapply sunscreen at least every two hours. (Depending, of course, on your level of sun exposure.)

    If your skin is so oily that you find yourself wiping or washing it, then you may reapply sooner.
