Sunscreen – In 2022, most of us are quite aware that suncare should be a non-negotiable part of everyone’s regimen. If you’ve been putting off incorporating SPF into your routine, now is the moment. You can also pat yourself on the back if you’ve already done so!


Yet, determining where to incorporate SPF into your skincare routine may be difficult, especially if you already have a lot of products to pour on.


We’re here to help you out. Continue reading to learn where SPF fits into your skincare routine and how much you should use.


Sunscreen and Skincare routine

Suncare product is designed to shield your skin from the sun’s UV rays, and it’s difficult to overstate how crucial this one product is for your skin. It is commonly stated that smoking and tanning beds are the two worst things you can do for your skin; missing sunscreen is right up there in terms of long-term harm.


UVA radiation penetrates the skin at all levels, from the epidermis to the dermis, and can harm the collagen and elastin fibers that maintain your skin taut and elastic. UVB radiation penetrates the epidermis and can induce photoaging, DNA damage, and the production of precancerous cells.

While skin cancer is the most dangerous consequence of solar damage, sun exposure may cause a variety of skin disorders. To begin, sunburn is a temporary – albeit unpleasant – ailment. Long-term sun exposure can also cause hyperpigmentation, dryness, leathery skin, and premature wrinkles.


Fortunately, you may avoid UV damage by limiting your exposure to the sun!


Staying in the shade, protecting your skin, and wearing a hat are all excellent precautions. In addition to these measures, wearing sunscreen every day is essential.


When should I use sunscreen as part of my skincare routine?


It should be the final product you apply as a general rule. It’s also vital to let the rest of your products permeate before applying sunscreen on top.


We recommend waiting a few minutes after applying your most recent skincare product. If you’re getting ready for the day, you may apply your skincare first, then do your hair or prepare a cup of tea while your skincare absorbs. Next, once everything else has been absorbed, apply your SPF.

Is it OK to apply in the morning and leave it on for the rest of the day?


No. However, sunscreen is not effective all day and will deteriorate (break down and become less effective) as you use it. Use sunscreen every 90 minutes to 2 hours, and at least 15-30 minutes before going outside. Reapply it soon after rinsing or towel-drying if you’re swimming or sweating.


What amount of suncare products should I put on my face?


The effectiveness of your sunscreen is heavily impacted by the amount you apply. The Cancer Council advises 5mL “for each arm, leg, body front, body back, and face (including neck and ears)” for adults. If you do your entire body and face, that comes to 35mL (about seven tablespoons).


Should I use my usual moisturizer over or under my sunscreen?

The type you choose will determine when you apply it throughout your skincare routine. Use a chemical sunscreen before your moisturizer since it takes time to soak into the skin.


Because physical or “mineral” suncare creates a veil or filter over your skin, they should be applied after your moisturizer.


Is it better to apply sunscreen before or after moisturizing?


For the record, SPF should be used after your moisturizer (and any other skincare, for that matter)! The last skincare product you apply should be SPF.

Are you going to put on makeup? When your sunscreen has been absorbed, apply your glam.


Can I mix suncare products and moisturizer?

Several influencers think that combining suncare and moisturizer gives their skin a great finish. This is not advised since moisturizer can dilute and weaken the efficacy of your sunscreen. Unless you locate a sunscreen that is billed as a moisturizer + SPF in one, apply SPF and moisturizer separately.


Is the SPF in my makeup sufficient?

While foundation contains SPF, it should be used in conjunction, not as a replacement. These hybrid products often include relatively few UV-blocking chemicals. To be successful, you would have to apply a lot of it, to the point that your skin looks unnaturally cakey.


Should I use face oil before or after applying suncare products?

Again, this is dependent on the sort of suncare you use. Use a chemical sunscreen before your face oil to allow it to penetrate correctly. If you’re using mineral sunscreen, first apply your face oil, then wait 2-3 minutes before applying your SPF.


Can I reapply sunblock while wearing makeup?

As previously noted, suncare must be reapplied – and reapplying makeup would be a pain! Fortunately, several choices make reapplying sunscreen over makeup a little simpler.


Should I reapply sunscreen after washing my face?

It depends on the time of day; if you’ll be exposed to the sun after washing your face at any point, the answer is yes: reapply suncare. For instance, cleaning your face before going to the gym at noon. But if you’re cleaning your face at the end of the day, there’s no need! Just go about your nightly routine as usual.


Here’s how to stack your skincare products included in the proper order:

  1. Cleanser
  2. Exfoliant (if using one)
  3. Serum
  4. Mist (if using one)
  5. Moisturiser
  6. SPF
  7. Makeup


Consider the type of products you use when determining when to apply it throughout your skin-care routine.


Physical sunscreens are preferred by us since their natural, mineral-based compositions are gentler on our skin and the environment. Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, contain potentially dangerous chemicals such as oxybenzone. These pollutants can cause health problems and contribute to coral bleaching in our seas, which is a significant issue for aquatic life.


While chemical sunscreens might be difficult to apply, physical sunscreens have a simple rule of thumb: apply it last whenever feasible.


Suncare products should be the last step in your skincare process, although they may be used under makeup. Another thing to keep in mind is that once you’ve applied sunscreen, you’ll want to disturb it as little as possible.


When you apply correctly, your entire routine will function better in the long run. The best part is that your skin will appreciate you for the protection whether it’s in 10 or 20 years.
