SPF In Your Make Up: Is It Enough?
It is probably a safe assumption that most of us use makeup with an SPF in it. However, most of us don’t apply sunscreen under make up as well. According to the PCA Skin website:
– 70% of women don’t wear sunscreen every day, many of them assuming that the SPF in their makeup protects them from sun damage.
This is not the case and especially in Nashville, it is not just a summer essential but a year round skin care must. Making sure that you are using the correct SPF based on your environment and daily activities is the best anti-aging product. Sun damage is the number one cause of visible aging – wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots.
Don't get us wrong, the SPF in your makeup will provide some coverage, you just don’t apply enough to get the full benefits. Just make sure that you are using a make up that has a broad spectrum sunscreen that blocks the harmful uv rays that penatrate deep into the skin.
"Sunscreen should be the final step in your daily care regimen after cleansing, toning and using any corrective serums or creams. You can follow up with your makeup, including the products that contain the additional SPF." - PCA Skin Website
