Here’s How You Can Reapply Sunscreen While Wearing Your Makeup
We’ve often heard how important it is to apply sunscreen every time we venture out in the sun. But did anybody tell you the significance of reapplication? The few drops that you pour on your hand and slather on the skin to guard yourself against the harmful UV rays aren’t merely enough. While there’s no doubt the sunscreen will work its way to shield your skin against the damage, reapplying frequently is equally crucial. Dermatologists strictly advise that applying the SPF every couple of hours or so would do the job better. But doesn’t that mean every time you reapply, your face would look a tad weird? Not really. To help retain your morning makeup and not smudge at all, here are some pithy tips you should follow.
Switch to Moisturizers With Built-In SPF
For those with sensitive skin, having a moisturizer that can multitask indeed works wonders. Founder and director of Capital Laser & Skin Care and also the Associate Clinical Professor at the Department of Dermatology at George Washington University Medical Centre, Elizabeth Tanzi highlighted on ‘cheating’ this ‘sunscreen game’ during the winter months. Instead of using double protection, it makes sense to resort to only one moisturizer carrying sunscreen potential rather than two separate items. Use such products in good quantities to right the optimum dose of SPF mentioned on the product label.
Get a Tinted Moisturizer With SPF
Give your heavy foundation a miss for a BB cream, which has a far lighter formula. In addition to that, that’s tinted and comes with SPF too! All you need to do is find the exact match for your skin and start using it. Also, you can use these two products on an everyday basis, without forsaking a great deal of money. On the contrary, you’ll be making a long-term investment for the beauty and health of your skin.
Apply The Sunscreen Under The Makeup
Just when you start your makeup, ensure you do all you can to keep your skin safe. As Heidi Waldorf, the director of the laser and cosmetic dermatology department at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City, rightly says- the areas near the top of the forehead or sides of the jawline, cheeks, neck, and even the hairline is under direct exposure to the sun.
This is because the application process happens around the middle of the face and the neck. The extra sun can cause unending damage to the upper cheekbones, which makes the reapplication process a must.
Use a Spray- Loaded With Sunscreen
That fine misty look you see on your favorite celebs’ faces is nothing but setting a spray right before he or she makes that grand red carpet entry! Even makeup artist Mai Quynh swears by the same for that spray offers adequate sun protection. She even recommends some high-end products available in the market. You can use this before, during, and even after you apply makeup. It’s wiser to choose those loaded with hyaluronic acid, for they have hydrating abilities and provides better shielding from the sun.
A Brush On Is A Great Boost
Without smearing that makeup or smudging or messing anything on the face, simply touch up with a mid-day SPF and see the difference. A powder sunscreen is a real savior during the summer months. Quynh suggests opting between a pressed or loose powder. For those who like loose powders because of the ease in the application must directly apply it on the face. However, the loose powder formula must have water-resistant protection with it.
Touch-Ups Using Compact
If loose powders don’t appeal to you, try a compact. Away from the bothersome texture or spillage, compacts are great that way. Besides, they come in different shades, so you can pick the one that goes with your complexion. So you get to touch up your makeup, and also, the sunscreen application co-occurs. It’s better to carry compacts also and keep them in the purse, desk, car, or anywhere convenient.
The next time you think of investing money on the best sunscreens available in the market, check to see if spending on the most expensive one would indeed be worthy. You would rather think of products that you can reapply and take better care of your skin.
