Make Up and Sunscreen…. do the two go hand in hand?

shutterstock_20216044We know that we need to use sunscreen to prevent skin cancer, wrinkles, and discoloration of our skin, and we also know that it is important to women today to look and feel good, glamorous, and comfortable and more often than not this includes the added help of a bit of makeup. For your information ladies we encourage you to let your natural beauty shine through but we understand that the pressures of today can lead any self-confident women to reach for their foundation…. So how can we combine the two?

There are endless makeup products available now that contain added SPF but what the brands don’t tell us is that this is not actually a very smart beauty and health solution. Dermatologist Leslie Baumann says, “Makeup does not provide enough coverage.

You need seven times the normal amount of foundation and 14 times the normal amount of powder to get the sun protection factor on the label. No one does this.” So the built-in sun protection in foundation and other makeup products is not an option.

Many women will put sunscreen on before they apply their make up but complain that it leaves the face greasy and sticky meaning foundations and powder’s don’t go onto the skin as well as usual. Plus any sunscreen over SPF 15 usually leaves a chalky residue on darker skin tones – not ideal for prepping your face pre make over!
