I have this question for long time. We all know we need to put sunscreen both on face and body.
And I use makeup remover to cleanse the sunscreen on the face. But, I am not sure how I should wash off sunscreen on the body. Very often, I might just use body wash, then I would question if I do cleanse it well. How you normally do to cleanse the sunscreen on your body? Would you share?

I shower and briskly towel dry. I just use whatever soap I have on hand, bar or liquid. It seems to take off zinc sunscreen just fine. However, I rarely take off body sunscreen until the next day's morning shower.

Shasta, you mean you leave the sunscreen on over the night? And you never have the skin problem? You have no problem if you only use body wash to clean the sunscreen on the body?

I prefer to use a body cleansing oil. Eucerin Calming Body Wash works well. Available at drug stores.

This one is pricier.

I got mine at SDM.

If you have a thick layer of water resistance SS, you can always use an oil first, then a soap based cleanser. (Oil can be from the kitchen.)

Since I shower in the mornings, I do leave the body sunscreen on overnight. I wash it off my face, however, it didn't make sense for me to shower twice a day. No skin problems for me, zinc is fairly gentle. It does seem to come off with body wash. I do tend to use less greasy sunscreen formulations though. Could be that the greasy ones are more problematic to get off.

Autumn, Shasta thank you for sharing. I guess I should stop being so panic about cleasing sunscreen on the body.
