As your dermatologist will tell you, wearing sunscreen is one of the most important things you can do to reduce your risk of skin cancer. Ideally, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours, but when you’re wearing makeup, you may be hesitant put additional lotion on top of your look.
Watch this video for advice on reapplying sunscreen without ruining your makeup. The key is to use a powder-based sunscreen that you can simply buff onto your skin, instead of piling on a sunscreen lotion, which will smear your makeup.
