Is the SPF in beauty products enough?

I make sure to wear SPF year round but I am also trying to streamline my routine by limiting the amount of products I use. BB creams and Tinted Moisturizers to the rescue! I wonder though, if the amount of product I use is enough to provide sun protection? Should I use a separate SPF product?



  • Makeup products with SPF are a nice bonus but you shouldn't rely on them as your sole sun protection. That's because sunscreens require a fairly thick layer to be effective and makeup just doesn't deliver enough of the active ingredient. (Plus you don't typically apply makeup to all the places that need to be protected.)   
  • You also need to re-apply sunscreen through the day. 
  • Good point!!
