The number one question regarding SPF is this – How do you actually apply SPF over makeup? Just a few hours after applying sunscreen and our skin is left vulnerable, unprotected and exposed to the attack of treacherous UVA and UVB rays. Applying sunscreen is a given in everyone’s daily morning ritual but the dilemma comes in the form of re-application.
Every working hour just gets busier and busier with more tasks, meetings and appointments. Some might recommend to remove your entire face of makeup, wash your face, apply sunscreen and repeat the entire process again. Others might say to just smear on sunscreen over the already greasy film on our skin. As an avid worrier of freckles and tanned skin, I’m thoroughly unconvinced of these methods of sunscreen application. In this hustle and bustle, it doesn’t really make sense to spare another 30 minutes on SPF protection, does it?
Just a week ago, Supergoop! launched its line of UV protection products in Singapore, ranging from SPF-infused skincare to SPF-infused makeup. Supergoop!’s Founder and CEO, Holly Thaggard, answered the one – literally burning – question that every girl out there had about SPF. How do you re-apply sunscreen over makeup? Fortunately, Supergoop! has provided us with three practical ways to re-apply your sunscreen!
Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45
That shiny T-zone is a recurring nightmare for many of us but we can always pat it down with translucent powder that diminishes the appearance of pores for a soft focus and matte finish. This 100% mineral, sweat resistant formula sets your makeup, reduces shine and doubles up as an SPF protectant. The best thing about the Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45? It is attached with a brush applicator in the product itself, making re-application possible in just one swoop!
Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50
We are all looking for a trusty makeup setting mist to seal in our perfectly sculpted face every morning – and this might just be it. By noon time, SPF on our skin has almost disappeared and it’s not uncommon for us to look for a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up! This product provides your skin with a matte finish as well as the needed SPF coverage. What’s not to love?
Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+
This product is your go-to midday, fuss-free makeup touch up. This velvety cream comes in three self-adjusting shades to suit a variety of skin tones. While covering imperfections and correcting uneven skin, it also targets wrinkles and fine lines. Sweat and sebum are the magic combination for patchy and blotchy skin so slip this CC Cream into your handbag and you will be well-prepared for the day!
