Chemical vs. Physical Sunscreens

Hi! I see people categorizing sunscreen as either Chemical, Physical, and Hybrid, too? I was wondering what is their differences and what would suit an oily/resilient skintype. Also, what do you think is best or is an all-around?

physical sunscreen is usually heavier compared to chemical sunscreen & most physical sunscreen tend to leave white cast too. while hybrid sunscreen is a mixture of both chemical & physical sunscreen. for oily skin types, it’s recommended to opt for chemical sunscreen as they r more lightweight & doesn’t leave white cast but I personally hv oily / resilient skin too but I don’t mind using physical sunscreen as I think this really needs to depends on each individual. i don’t think there’s a “best” type of sunscreen for oily /resilient skin type as different person prefer different texture etc so I would say go with what ur skin likes & suits u 😇😇
