How to apply SPF
If you don't apply your SPF properly, it won't give you the protection you want. There are a number of points that you should pay attention to, so that your SPF offers you optimal protection.
1. Use SPF as the last step in your skincare routine. Do you use makeup? Let your SPF soak in for a few minutes first.
2. Apply your sunscreen wherever your skin is exposed to the sun. So don't forget your ears and the back of your neck.
3. Wait a while to apply after applying SPF to your body. Otherwise you will rub it off on your clothes and there will be less left to protect your skin.
4. Do you want to be extra well protected? Then use a serum with a lot of antioxidants such as a vitamin C serum for your sunburn. This protects your skin even more against the damage of UV radiation.
How often to apply SPF
It depends on the situation how often you need to apply your SPF. If you are indoors most of the day, it is sufficient to apply a good layer in the morning. Sun filters are not broken down by time, but by exposure to UV radiation. If you are going to be outside all day or for several hours, it is advisable to apply a new layer of SPF every two hours.
