SPF Protection: Application and layering

(0) Hearts

I want to wear SPF everyday but am a little confused. For instance, if my moisturizer has NO spf but the primer I put on top of it does , and then the foundation I put on top of that does NOT, is my skin still protected? Does it matter which layer of your skincare or makeup routine has the SPF as long as there is one layer? Or does it have to be the first moisturizer I put on? Or the last  powder? Thanks!

Hi Eirini Yes, but depending on the SPF and how long you are out in the sun, it may not protect you all day.

At least one of the items that you apply has an SPF, which is great! The higher the SPF the longer it will last. I always recommend applying an spf often, since you don't want to mess up your make up, I suggest the

Okay, so just to be clear, you're saying that by wearing a primer with SPF, I am still protecting my skin?

And your suggestion of the PTR mineral powder is just for touch ups?
