    First, it is important to know that there are basically 2 types of sunscreen: Chemical and Physical.   

    Chemical Sunscreens (e.g. avobenzone, helioplex, and other's with unpronounceable names) undergo a chemical reaction with the UV rays, absorbing them and then release the extra energy as heat. The sunscreen's chemical reaction is only for a limited amount of time, hence you will have to reapply after 2-3 hours to ensure you are still protected.
