We know that wearing makeup makes some of us feel more confident in our skin, but adding sunscreen to your makeup routine can help you put your best and most beautiful face forward. In addition to applying a separate sunscreen before putting on your makeup, reapplying sunscreen to your skin can help you achieve better sun protection from your products. In the video below, learn more about when and how to apply sunscreen in conjunction with your normal cosmetic routine.
Because even SPF-rated cosmetic products do not provide adequate sun protection, apply a separate layer of sunscreen to clean skin before applying makeup. Wearing sunscreen under your makeup also ensures that reapplying is convenient; if you have sweat off your makeup, reapply both your sunscreen and your makeup. If your makeup is still intact, your sunscreen is likely still on your skin. To ensure you keep your skin protected throughout the day, reapply sunscreen after swimming, sweating or spending a few hours outdoors.
