How to Use Your FSA Dollars to Buy Sunscreen

how to use your FSA dollars to buy sunscreen

Did you know that you can use your Flexible Spending Account towards SPF? Well, you can, and if that prompts a few questions on your end, then please keep reading for the rundown. 

OK, so I’m embarrassed to ask, but what is my FSA again? 

You may remember signing up for it when you elected your benefits. But it’s when you set aside $$ before taxes for specific healthcare expenses. 

Thank you, thank you! How do I know if I did that? 

Just check with your employer or insurance company! (You probably also received a special credit card for it.)

Sorry…but how does this involve Supergoop! again?

Because healthcare expenses translates to SPF (healthy skin!). Which means our products totally count. 

Fab!!! How do I use it? 

Just enter your FSA card like you would your credit card at checkout. 

Amazing. So what should I get?

Truly anything your heart desires. But you can go straight to our best sellers here.

Got it – any other advice? 

Well, finding the best SPF for you truly depends on your skin type, tone and favorite activities… If you’re in the market for a super hydrating winter moisturizer, then we love Superscreen Daily Moisturizer SPF 40. If you love makeup and looking for a makeup-gripping primer, there’s nothing better than Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40. And finally, if you’re super active, then our Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50 is fast-absorbing and sweat-resistant for 80 minutes.

In conclusion…

Time’s ticking…! Your FSA dollars usually expire at the end of every year, but most plans also have a grace period till March 15th (just check with your benefits provider). So hop to better skin, right now!
