When to Apply Sunscreen SPF in Your Skincare Routine

At Nakin we produce award-winning anti-ageing skincare, and one of the keys to good skin is protecting it effectively from the sun. Most people know that it is important to apply sunscreen every day before going outside, to protect their skin from the harmful effects of the sun. However, many people are unsure of when to apply sunscreen in their skincare routine. Here is a quick guide to help you determine how to do it for optimal protection.

If you use a moisturiser or serum in your skin routine, then apply your sunscreen after you have applied these products. This will ensure that your skin can get the best from the actives in the face cream and that skin is properly hydrated, the sunscreen will then create a layer of protection for skin over the top. If you use an eye cream, then apply your sunscreen after you have applied your eye cream. This will also allow the eye cream ingredients to better work their magic on skin. Applying your moisturiser before you apply your sunscreen will also help to create a barrier between your skin and the sunscreen, which can contain synthetic chemicals that can have negative effects for your skin.

If you use a foundation then it is generally best to apply your sunscreen before foundation, so still after a moisturiser, but before makeup. However, with this advice consider that sunscreen needs to be reapplied regularly when still exposed to the sun. It is best to reapply sunscreen every two hours, and this is because it can be sweated off or dried off by the sun, and generally looses its effectiveness over time. So, you might also need to touch up your foundation at the same time, depending on the coverage that is still there.

We hope that you found our feature helpful explaining when to apply sunscreen SPF in your skincare routine. The other thing that is important is to always make sure that you apply it to skin. Now that you know when to apply sunscreen in your skincare routine, make sure to always use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, to effectively protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. SPF 50 will offer the best protection and we recommend using this on the face, neck and chest during hot weather. The sunscreen that you use should always be a five-star rated broad spectrum product, to make sure you are protected against both UVA and UVB rays. We also recommend using a mineral sunscreen to keep the protection as natural as possible for skin. Once you have the right sunscreen then it is important to apply it correctly, so follow the product directions as each one can be different.
