When Do I Apply Sunscreen on my skin?
Well, let’s apply the SPF (Sun Protection Factor) rule.
According to consumer report
SPF (sun protection factor) is a relative measure of how long a sunscreen will protect you from ultraviolet (UV) B rays. The chief cause of reddening and sunburn, UVB rays tend to damage the epidermis, skin’s outer layers, where the most common (and least dangerous) forms of skin cancer occur.
Sunscreen can be applied to the skin even before getting dressed as they can also serve as normal body moisturiser. According to the medical rule, it should be applied 15 minutes before going outside.
Can Makeup be worn on sunscreen?
Wearing makeup is a choice, you can decide to wear makeup on your sunscreen or not. You will still get the adequate amount of protection you need.
When should I re-apply my sunscreen
Sunscreens should be re-applied at least every 2-3 hours. The working factors of sunscreen are broken down by the sun so it best to re-apply within 2-3hours. And during cold days you can apply them just once.
However, if you’re wearing makeup while you’re out, re-application can get tricky, but you do have a few options. You can either throw your hands in the air and apply that liquid SPF over your makeup, or, if messing up that contour isn’t an option, you can also brush on a powder.
In addition, you can make use of sunglasses, face caps or hats and other protective wears you might think of.
