By now, we all know how important it is to wear sunscreen every day. Rain or shine, wearing SPF every day is the best way to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. But let’s be honest, how many times have you been lazy and skipped it? I totally get it, we’ve all been there! Sometimes you’re in a rush and adding another step to your existing skincare and makeup routine can seem troublesome. Although the issue remains that sunscreen is crucial, yet to make our lives easier, many makeup brands have been incorporating SPF into their products. Although it should be noted, it does not replace your daily dose of sunscreen, no matter how much you put on! But it’s definitely a worthy boost that can help the cause.
Having SPF in your makeup gives you the minimum amount of sun protection on the go, especially if you didn’t think you’d be out for the day. Genius, right? However, it should be noted that most of the makeup products that you will find generally contain only a 15-20 SPF level, which is not enough. Ideally, you should use at least an SPF of 30. This means that you should go for a makeup with a higher SPF. Of course, finding the right level of sun protection in makeup can be confusing at first, but it pays off in the long run. And do not worry! We have you covered! We’ve listed our favorite essential SPF makeup products below that will give you that extra protection on a daily basis.
