Use if you want everyday protection without a chalky finish.

This mineral SPF 35 with lightweight moisture provides invisible, three-way protection against the elements—environmental pollution, electronic pollution (from screen time), and of course, the sun. Its oil-free formula with a creamy texture has a natural finish—not too dewy, not too matte—and doesn't leave a white or gray cast on your skin. The non-nano zinc oxide (the safest SPF active available for our bodies and our oceans) works at the skin’s surface to physically prevent UVA and UVB rays from penetrating your skin. It helps block HEV (high energy visible) light too. All the while, antioxidants fight off environmental and blue light (aka HEV) damage for 360 protection—and all the benefits for aging skin that come along with it. It’s broad-spectrum sun protection for your everyday life. Yes, every day—rain or shine, outdoors and in.
Made with 79% PCR (post consumer recycled) plastic.
Recently, some of our community members have reached out with feedback regarding graininess and, in some rare cases, irritation while using certain batches of Guards Up SPF. Out of an abundance of caution, we are no longer selling certain batch codes of product. Learn more about how we’re addressing this issue in full here
HOW: Gently smooth an even, generous layer (about the size of a coin) onto skin. Because mineral SPF acts as a barrier, sitting on the surface of the skin, do smooth it on—don’t rub it in the way you would a moisturizer. Use a light touch with this and any products you apply after to avoid makeup pilling.
WHERE: Face and neck. Bonus points for hands—after your eyes, hands are the number two spot that gives away age.
WHEN: AM (every AM), after your moisturizer has fully absorbed into your skin. If wearing makeup, allow 2-3 minutes for the sunscreen to sink in before applying primer or other cosmetics. Reapply every 2 hours when in direct sunlight or getting wet.
GOOD TO KNOW: Even though mineral sunscreen goes to work right away, we recommend following the FDA guidelines to wait 15 minutes before sun exposure. And remember: No sunscreen is a replacement for staying out of the sun.
Use before the expiration date printed on the crimp on the tube.
