At Etiket, we’re all about sunscreen and keeping our skin protected from the sun. However, when our makeup is looking good, and our skin is looking glowy, the last thing we want to do is rub a liquid sunscreen on top of our perfectly made-up face. For that reason, we came-up with a re-application strategy that will allow you to keep your skin protected, while keeping your makeup intact.
STEP 1. Start With an SPF Base
In this article, we will introduce you to some great SPF products that allow you to re-apply sunscreen throughout the day. However, none of them are as efficient as a solid SPF base. A solid SPF base includes any of our broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection sunscreens of at least SPF30. Experts recommend you apply a tablespoon of a liquid sunscreen to the face, and a shot glass to your body. Once this base is applied, your re-application will serve as a touch-up throughout the day as your base slowly wears off with sweat and daily wear. Here are some of the bestselling broad-spectrum sunscreens we sell at Etiket.
STEP 2. Use a Powder Sunscreen
Once your base has been applied, skincare experts recommend re-applying sunscreen after two hours have passed. This task can be challenging once makeup has been applied and we’re either at the office, or out with friends. For that reason, we recommend reaching for a powder sunscreen. They deliver consistent UVA/UVB protection, and allow you to touch-up your makeup throughout the day. Keep shine at bay with these powder sunscreens from some of our most popular brands.
STEP 3. Mist For a Quick Refresh
Who doesn’t love a facial mist? It’s a quick and easy way to refresh your skin mid-afternoon. If you’re into toners and essences then you’ll love an SPF facial mist! When your skin is in need of a boost, mist away and provide your skin with the SPF touch-up it needs. Not only do these sprays provide environmental protection, but they also are packed with hydrating ingredients that’ll give you an instant glow!
MAKEUP WITH SPF
There are some makeup products that provide added SPF protection. However, experts advise against skipping the liquid SPF base and jumping right to SPF makeup products, as they don’t usually provide as much protection as solid sunscreen products. However, they can help you touch-up your sunscreen throughout the day and/or get that added SPF you’ll need if you’re spending your day out and about! Here are some of our favourites.
