How You Should Be Layering Sunscreen

Everyone knows that they should be wearing sunscreen every single day no matter what, right? RIGHT?!

When you’re not running around in the sand or laying by the pool this summer, finding a way to properly layer your sunscreen with the rest of your beauty routine is kind of weird but still a big deal. Do you apply it before your skincare? After skincare but before makeup? Do I have to apply it when I travel? Keep scrolling to find out!

So, a huge part about when and where to incorporate your sunscreen into your routine depends on what kind of sunscreen you’re using! There are tons of different kinds of sunscreens on the market, so you have to find what works best for your skin, your routine and your lifestyle. If you’re going to be out in the sun a lot, make sure to reapply every 2 hours or so and you want to generally use enough sunscreen (think the size of a golf ball).

Under Your Makeup

If incorporating sunscreen under your makeup seems ideal to you- go for a formula that’s not greasy and very lightweight. But what if your makeup or moisturizer has SPF in it, you ask? That’s good, but not great. All of the research the CINCteam and I did points to using the real thing. While products with SPF in the formula doesn’t hurt, you still need that real SPF!

With that in mind, I started using this Supergoop everyday sunscreen under my makeup right after I wash my face while my skin is still slightly damp. It’s super lightweight, absorbs into your skin really quickly and doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue. PSA: Don’t forget your ears, neck, and décolletage either!

Do you remember me talking about these SPF drops? They’re the perfect happy medium. You can wear it alone as a sunscreen- one or two drops will do it- OR you can add a drop to your favorite moisturizer to infuse it with sun protection. While mixing the drops with a cream dilutes the SPF rating, it still is a great way to get that sunscreen into your routine.

 

No matter how you end up wearing it, always leave the house with SPF on. Even on a cloudy day and yes, even when you’re traveling as that actually puts you closer to sun so the UV damage is at its highest! And with so many different ways to wear it, you really have no excuses. To read about skin cancer prevention tips from my girl Idalia, click here!
