How to Layer Sunscreen and Makeup Like a Pro21

Wearing a sunscreen is a skin care law. We all know abouyt this. However, we try learing the SPF in our creams, foundations to coverup and skip out in wearing what we say as “the guffy stuffs”. The main problem with that is you have to apply more makeup for gaining the benifits.

Dr. Elizabeth Tenzi, the founder as well as the director of Capital Laser & Skin Care at the George Washington University Medical Center says that most women doesnt apply enough to get the SPF on the perfect label. She says, “If you are applying a lot of makeup, than its ok.”. Otherwise, safest bet can be wearing the layer of actual sunscreen.

It is said that it can by oily as well as it can feel heavy too. But we get, there are so many lightweight and matte sunscreens available in the market which dry up quickly. According to the professionals, there are some ways that can help in getting smooth out the sunscreen process.

The proper way to layer the sunscreen & makeup:

If its the physical sunscreen:

⦁ First of all, wash your face and apply the normal moisturizer
⦁ Immediately after applying the moisturizer, follow the sunscreen. Making sure that you apply within 3 to 5 minutes of washing your face.
⦁ Once they are obsorved totally, apply the makeup.
⦁ Bottom up by setting everything with the mineral sunscreen powder.

If its a chemical sunscreen:

⦁ If its the chemical sunscreen, start up by applying the sunscreen within 3 to 5 minutes of washing or rinsing your face.
⦁ Immediately follow up with your moisturizer.
⦁ Once they are obsorved totally, apply the makeup.
⦁ Bottom up by setting everything with the mineral sunscreen powder.

 

First of all, you need to know that there are two types of sunscreen i.e. physical and chemical. Both of them have different layering process as well.

Chemical sunscreen have to be obsorved on your skin to show it’s effect. Thats why it will be best to apply the sunscreen before applying your moisturizer. Because of that it will not block the SPF from absorbing to the max level.

Apart of that, physical sunscreen is always on the top of the skin and it protects the outward. For applying the physical sunscreen, it will be better to apply the moisturizer before the sunscreen. After you apply the makeup (either in physical or chemical sunscreen), set everything with the mineral sunscreen powder.
