Exposing the skin to direct sunlight can have many negative effects on it. To reduce the effects of photoaging of the skin it is worth using sunscreen creams all year round, regardless of the weather outside. It seems like a piece of cake to apply sunscreen, but things get tricky when you want to put a layer of makeup on your face. Here’s how to make sure your makeup is perfect and your skin is protected from the sun.
How do I apply sunscreen?
Facial skin is particularly sensitive, so it requires special care and protection. For this purpose, many specialists recommend the use of creams with UV filters to protect the skin from external factors. The use of such products in daily skin care can slow down the natural aging process of the skin, spare us from ugly discoloration and even prevent serious diseases. Here are a few rules to make your sun protection even more complete
Use SPF 50 sunscreen on your face
The best and most effective protection can only come from products with a very high SPF. So don’t look for a product lower than SPF 50
How much cream should I apply to my face?
You should use enough product to cover the entire face. Keep in mind, however, that these types of products are quite greasy, and any excess will be immediately visible on your face. At one time, it is enough to apply a portion of the product on your face that would fit on half of a teaspoon
Reapply your sunscreen every 3 hours
There is no product on the market yet that provides all-day UV protection. That’s why it’s a good idea to reapply sunscreen about every 3 hours. While no one wants to ruin their perfect makeup by applying another layer of sunscreen over their foundation, there are effective ways to keep your makeup intact:
