What do we need to do before applying suncream?

While summer is coming closer and bringing with it intense sunlight, the need for diligent sun protection should be a priority in your daily skincare routine. Sunscreen is a vital tool in shielding our skin from harmful UV radiation, but did you know its effectiveness can be maximized by taking a few crucial steps before application?

1.Double Cleansing for Smooth Application

Preparing your skin before sunscreen application is key to ensuring even coverage. Double cleansing helps remove dead skin cells, blackheads, and sebum, allowing the sunscreen to penetrate more effectively and create a smooth barrier against UV rays.

2.Use Toner to Balance Skin Moisture and pH

After using a facial cleanser, your skin will inevitably lose moisture. Therefore, using a toner containing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin will add moisture to the skin, helping it balance its pH level effectively.

3.Hydrate Your Skin

Proper hydration is essential for healthy skin and plays a vital role in enhancing sunscreen effectiveness. Moisturized skin not only absorbs sunscreen more efficiently but also helps maintain the skin's natural barrier function. Choose a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated without clogging pores, especially in hot and humid conditions.

4.Apply Sunscreen Generously

Now that your skin is primed and ready, it's time to apply sunscreen generously. Don't skimp on the product; make sure the sunscreen covers all of your face. Pay special attention to commonly overlooked areas such as the ears, back of the neck, tops of the feet, and hands. Remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours, or more frequently if swimming or sweating profusely.

5.Allow Time for Absorption

After applying sunscreen, allow it some time to absorb into the skin before heading outdoors. This ensures that the protective barrier is fully formed and less likely to be rubbed or washed off prematurely.

Effective sun protection goes beyond simply slathering on sunscreen. By understanding what your skin needs, prepping your skin with a protective skincare routine, and choosing the right products, you can enhance the efficacy of your sun protection routine and safeguard your skin against sun damage. Prioritize sun safety and enjoy the sunshine responsibly for a healthier, happier summer.
