Fact or fiction: waterproof sunscreen also works after swimming

A lot of people often opt for a sunscreen that is waterproof. However, is this waterproof feature really beneficial in a sunscreen? Also, does a waterproof sunscreen still work on you and your child after being out of the water?

Fact or fable: waterproof sunscreen also works after swimming

Myth: waterproof sunscreens are supposed to be more resistant to water than non-waterproof sunscreens. However, you (and your child!) still need to apply sunscreen onto your body once you’re out of the water. Even the most water-resistant sunscreen can be wiped out by water, sweat, clothes, and it can also just dry out. What about the Protecting Sun Spray and the Protecting Sunscreen from Naïf?
