27 Jun How to Reapply Sunscreen Over Makeup?
Sunscreen is the one product that all dermatologists insist people use. Sunscreen is literally one of those products that need to keep in top priority if one wants to look fresh, young and of course damage free. The other factors that need to be in consideration are that the SPF should be effective, and the sunscreen must be mandatorily applied over makeup. Scary? Of course, it is! Imagine your makeup being all destroyed with the reapplication of sunscreen.
But no! the beauty industry always finds a way out.
Why would you need a sunscreen in the first place?
When considering it on the real scale, reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours might be a little over the top. But to be scientific and precise, sunscreen products are extremely essential – the lines, the wrinkles, the dark spots and pigmentation all come from the sun damage. How your skin ages have everything to do with the sun, and you definitely want to protect yourself from this.
How do you go about the makeup?
For the base, start off with a good sunscreen. Choose a higher SPF and some product that protects you from both UVA and UV B rays. Apply evenly over face neck, and other exposed areas, then allow to sit for some time. Apply makeup over this layer.
Now how do you retouch your sunscreen?
It is obvious that you can’t apply the sunscreen over the makeup – but there are setting sprays available with sunscreen! These are mist sprays, and they let you keep your makeup intact. And it adds on a layer of sunscreen to your face. It is a complete win-win situation. Most of the formulas have skin rejuvenating properties, so ingredients like hyaluronic acid keep your skin hydrated.
You have to keep your eyes shut and spray for a good 3 to 5 seconds to get an even coating of the products! Happy suntans to you now!
