How To Incorporate SPF Into Your Makeup Routine.

how to incorporate SPF into your foundation routine

Should we be using an SPF-based foundation? Does layering skincare and make-up reduce the effectiveness of SPF? Knowing the correct way to protect your skin from the sun while maintaining your existing beauty regimen, is vital.
Keep reading to find out the foolproof way to correctly incorporate SPF into your morning makeup routine.

We have all wondered, at some point, if SPF is any less effective when incorporated into make-up?
Thankfully no, it is not less effective.  However, the regulations around sunscreen in make-up do not allow for protection higher than SPF15 for non-tinted and 30+ for tinted make-up. So if you are making it a day of outdoor activities, relying solely on your SPF tinted moisturiser or foundation, is not going to provide the SPF protection your skin requires.

Should SPF sunscreen be applied underneath or over make-up?
Sunscreen should always be applied after moisturiser and before foundation.

For your skin to benefit from the ingredients in your moisturiser, it should be applied first to clean, dry skin, and your sunscreen should then be applied after moisturisation to protect your skin from the sun. The good news is that the presence of mineral colouring agents used in foundations to give them their colour pigment and masking effects, actually offer some sun protection by reflecting the sun’s UV rays away from the skin.

So, in actual fact, applying your foundation over sunscreen is more likely to enhance the protective effect rather than reduce it! And that is great news!
