As we approach warmer months, I have one thing on my mind: sunscreen. (Forgive me, I’m a beauty editor.) I am a ride-or-die sunscreen user. It’s a part of my morning skincare routine no matter the weather or season, but when I start spending more time outside, sunscreen becomes a pivotal part of my beauty routine.
One thing that always puzzles me about sunscreen, however, is reapplication. Conventional wisdom from derms dictates that we should be reapplying sunscreen every two hours (or every 40 to 80 minutes when swimming or sweating). That’s easy enough to remember, but what am I supposed to do if I have a full face of makeup on?
Luckily, there’s an easy solution for staying protected from the sun without trying to spread sunscreen on top of your makeup. Enter setting sprays with SPF, which make SPF reapplication a breeze, even if you’re sporting a full face. I reached out to experts to get the 411 on everything you’ve ever wanted to know about setting sprays infused with sunscreen.
