How to Layer Your Sunscreen


By now I would hope that all of my lovely readers are wearing sunscreen every single day, rain or shine. When you’re not at the beach or by the pool, finding a way to layer your sunscreen with the rest of your beauty routine is just as important. You may be wondering whether to apply before or after your skincare routine, before makeup, after makeup, when you travel, when you’re at work…and so on.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. Today I’m going to share with you how I layer my sunscreen for any type of situation to ensure a flawless, and sun-protected look.


Incorporating sunscreen into your skincare and beauty routine always depends on the type of sunscreen you use. Sometimes your regular grocery-store-bought brand just won’t do the trick. With so many types of sunscreens out there, it’s important to find the ones that work best for you, your skin, and your lifestyle.

After Your Skincare

Applying sunscreen after your skincare routine is essential. For me personally, I don’t wear a whole lot of makeup to work or on the weekends, but since I never skip my skincare routine, I always make sure to apply sunscreen right after. If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you’ll know my absolute favorite brand of sunscreen is SuperGoop! They have so many different types for all kinds of situations so you never have to worry! If you’re like me and need an every day sunscreen, try out SuperGoop’s Every Day Sunscreen (easy enough, right?) with SPF 50. If you’re planning on spending a lot of time in the sun, try to reapply every two hours.

Under Your Makeup

If you plan on wearing sunscreen under your makeup, try a formula that is super lightweight and not greasy or reflective. My absolute favorite for this is the SuperGoop Unseen Sunscreen with SPF 40. I’ve talked about this product more times than I can count and I promise you it lives up to the hype. It’s antioxidant rich, oil free and goes on lighter than a moisturizer. I put this on right after I finish my skincare routine doubling as a makeup primer.

Over Your Makeup

If you’d prefer to wear your sunscreen over your makeup, there are so many great powder and spray options. My go-to, is the SuperGoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist. Not only does it give you that added protection from the sun, but it sets your makeup at the same time. Talk about two birds, one stone. The best part? It’s so easy to reapply throughout the day and will keep your face looking flawless no matter how hot it is outside!

Like I said earlier, SuperGoop! has been a brand that I’ve been using for so long now and has become a staple in my every day routine. They have so many great products, whether you’re looking for a faux tan, a body foam, a hand cream, lip and cheek tint and more, SuperGoop! has everything you need! Enjoy!
