The use of sunscreen products and make-up can be combined, but it is important to follow some guidelines to ensure proper sun protection:

  1. Apply sunscreen first: Before applying makeup, be sure to apply a layer of broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF. Let it absorb into the skin for a few minutes before applying make-up.

  2. Choose makeup products with sun protection: Look for makeup products that contain a sun protection factor (SPF). Some foundations, tinted moisturizers, powders, and lip balms contain SPF ingredients that offer added protection against the sun's rays.

  3. Reapply sunscreen during the day: Even if you've applied sunscreen under your makeup, it's a good idea to reapply sunscreen every two hours or after sweating or towel-drying your face.

  4. Use light and breathable products: During the warmer months, opt for light, non-comedogenic and breathable makeup products. This will allow your skin to breathe and reduce the chance of clogged pores.

  5. Don't neglect the rest of your body: While applying sunscreen to your face, don't forget to also protect the rest of your body exposed to the sun, such as your neck, décolleté, arms and legs. You can use a sunscreen lotion or protective body oil.

  6. Remove make-up properly: Make sure you remove all make-up completely at the end of the day, using a mild cleanser. After your make-up is removed, you can apply a moisturizer or after-sun lotion to soothe and hydrate your skin.

Remember that sunscreen is essential to keep your skin healthy and prevent damage caused by UV rays. While make-up can provide additional protection, sunscreen remains the key to proper sun protection.
