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.
