Moisturisers penetrate the skin – while SPF products sit on the skin. So can the products work in combination in your SPF moisturiser and keep you protected? Let’s find out!
Is Your SPF Moisturiser Keeping You Protected?
SPF blocks UV rays, so doesn’t it make sense to add this as the final layer of skincare. If you have a combined product, how exactly do they work together?
Which SPF Moisturiser Do You Use?
It depends on the product. Moisturiser may dilute the SPF which will minimise your protection from the sun. Always use a broad spectrum combined product which is at least SPF 30. This will mean you are fully protected from both UVA and UVB rays. SPF only relates to UVB whereas broad spectrum blocks both UVA and UVB rays. The SkinBase Daily Repair and Protect cream is the perfect product to keep you protected.
Use Enough Product
Your SPF moisturiser may not provide as much sun protection as pure SPF. How can you combat this? Make sure you are using the right amount so that the SPF works to its capacity. Two fingers or the equivalent of two teaspoons worth is needed for your face.
Streamline Your Skincare
Applying your SPF moisturiser is keeping you more protected than just applying moisturiser alone – so don’t give up on it. The good news is if you are using an SPF 30 and applying the correct amount, it is a great way to minimise your skincare routine – and stay protected.
