How To Reapply Sunscreen Over Makeup

Sun protection is an important aspect of any skincare routine. With just a few drops of sunscreen, you can protect your skin from dangerous UV radiation and skin damage caused by the sun. If you use sunscreen every day, you're well on your way to having healthy skin as you get older. If you don't already use sunscreen every day, you should start to invest in a daily SPF, like our newly formulated UV Shield: EGF FGF DNA Sun Protection. But did you know that just one application of sunscreen in the morning isn't enough to keep you protected all day? While using sunscreen in the morning is preferable to not applying it at all, reapplying it frequently is required for dependable UV protection. In fact, for continuous sun protection for the face, experts recommend reapplying your SPF every two hours.

While reapplying sunscreen is beneficial to your skin, putting sunscreen over makeup may be difficult. There are methods to reapply sunscreen without ruining your early-morning makeup, thankfully. Learn how to reapply sunscreen over makeup like a pro below!

  1. Add Sunscreen to Your AM Skincare Routine


Don't only invest in a good sunscreen to effectively protect your skin from the sun. Find one that complements your morning skincare regimen while also acting as a first layer of protection by blending nicely with your makeup. If you're wondering how much SPF to use on your face, go for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Broad-spectrum sunscreens shield your skin from both UVA and UVB radiation, which are both harmful to your skin. 

Our newly formulated UV Shield: EGF FGF DNA Sun Protection is a light and luxurious moisturizing sunblock with SPF 47+ broad-spectrum/PA+++ rating protection that applies smoothly without a heavy greasy feel and leaves your skin with a healthy glow.

When it comes to applying makeup to your face, neck, and chest, make sure you use a generous amount. If you've applied a foundation layer of SPF and need to reapply after being in the sun for a lengthy amount of time, SPF-containing skincare products are an easy method to do so without smearing your morning makeup.

  1. Add Tinted Moisturizer with SPF to Your Routine

If you don't want to use a lot of products, try including a tinted moisturizer with SPF into your routine. A tinted sunscreen moisturizer will protect you from the sun's UV rays while also providing required moisture and concealing tiny imperfections. Using this two-in-one solution will help you save time and money on your skincare regimen while also preventing you from buying unneeded items. A tinted sunscreen moisturizer's multitasking characteristics will also guarantee that you use both products on a regular basis. If you decide to buy a moisturizer with SPF, make sure you use enough to acquire the required quantity of SPF. 

Our EGF Blemish Balm combines skincare and makeup into a lightweight tinted moisturizing concealer for a natural skin-like finish. Made with titanium dioxide for sun protection and epidermal growth factors (EGFs) to soften fine lines and imperfections. Color-matching technology immediately blends the formula into your natural skin tone for light coverage and radiant complexion. 


Worried About Breakouts?

Many individuals dislike the idea of putting sunscreen on their faces. They are concerned that heavier lotions would promote oily skin or, worse, breakouts. Fortunately, skincare products have progressed, and the sunscreen you use on your face differs significantly from the sunscreen you use on your body. While the sort of product you use will depend on your specific needs, we recommend that you select a sunscreen that is appropriate for your skin type and amount of exercise. If you have sensitive skin, be aware of this before introducing a new face sunscreen to your skincare routine.

Now that you've discovered how to reapply sunscreen with makeup, there's no excuse not to reapply regularly. While every skincare routine is different, sunscreen is a must-have in any skincare program. Start reaping the advantages of sunscreen immediately by including it into your daily routine.
