For years there's been an emphasis on making sunscreen a part of your daily life—not just when you hit the beach. But the white lotion is sticky, thick and doesn't blend well. Who wants to apply that under their makeup daily? Our foundation would never approve. Instead we've got a few ways for you to add SPF to your routine without the sunblock.
SPF-Infused Moisturizer With an abundance of products, it's confusing to know which should be applied first. The general rule is to apply skincare products from the thinnest to thickest. However, sunscreen is the one exception because it's based on whether its a physical or chemical sunscreen. The easiest way to avoid a mistake—apply a moisturizer with SPF built in. The best formulas are still light and blend well into the skin. They just happen to also add protection.
Makeup With SPF Any dermatologist will tell you that the SPF in makeup isn't enough protection. But because most of us wear makeup daily and don't want the hassle of taking it off and reapplying sunscreen throughout the day, SPF in our makeup comes in handy. Foundations and powders are the perfect SPF touchup. Apply the product (preferably SPF 15 or higher) all over your face to add another layer of protection in the afternoon.
Drink It Now you can forget the products, and just drink it. The Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare Harmonized Waters are infused with SPF 30. The technology actually works like a shield, protecting the skin even before it's in contact with the sun. Add 2 ml to water every four hours. Wait one hour before going outside.
