How to Properly Layer Sunscreen
Daily sunscreen application is one of the most important things you can do for healthy and vibrant skin. And while you may think you're applying the recommended amount of SPF, skin experts and dermatologists say most people are using far less than the amount needed for adequate protection. But instead of slathering on a large amount of a single product to ensure you're protected, you can layer your SPF formulas instead. This allows you to get protection from multiple sources like SPF powder, makeup, and moisturizers to get closer to the recommended dosage. Here are some tips for layering sunscreen: (1) Start with a base layer of sunscreen. (2) Let the sunscreen dry between each layer. (3) Reapply often throughout the day. Of course, in addition to wearing sunscreen, there are other ways you can protect yourself from UV rays, such as wearing a wide brim hat and sunglasses when outside and avoiding peak sun hours during the day.
