How much integrated SPF moisturiser to use?
  • I typically use a separate SPF product to have better control of my skincare routine and reliable SPF coverage. However, due to recent changes in my schedule I have been tempted to use day creams with integrated SPF for convenience. I have started with La Roche Posay's Hydraphase Intense UV which claims to have SPF20. Additionally, I practice all other sun safety measures.

    My main concern is, how do I know how much to use? Do I dispense the same recommended quantity as sunscreens? Is it safe to use the same amount I would use for a moisturiser? Is this form of sun protection reliable at all? 
  • You need to apply just as much of this product as if you were applying a regular sunscreen. That means about a a nickel-sized dollop to the face alone. (Source: http://www.skincancer.org/skin-cancer-information/ask-the-experts/how-much-sunscreen-should-i-be-using-on-my-face-and-body)
  • Thanks!
