The importance of using SPF makeup products during summer

Updated: May 20

As the summer season is in full swing, it's crucial to prioritise sun protection in your daily routine. While we are familiar with applying sunscreen on our bodies, we often overlook the significance of protecting our faces. In this blog, I will explore why using SPF makeup products is incredibly important during this time of year.

Shielding against Harmful UV Rays:

UV radiation from the sun poses significant risks to our skin, including sunburns, premature aging, and an increased likelihood of skin cancer. By incorporating SPF makeup products into our beauty routine, it creates an additional barrier to protect our skin from these damaging rays.

Convenient Sun Protection:

One of the primary advantages of SPF makeup products is their convenience. By combining skincare and cosmetics, these products simplify our routine by offering dual benefits. Rather than applying sunscreen and then makeup separately, SPF makeup allows us to save time while providing essential sun protection!

Protection in All Seasons: While we tend to associate SPF with summer, it's crucial to note that UV rays can damage the skin throughout the year, even on cloudy days. Wearing SPF makeup products consistently, helps maintain a proactive approach to sun protection and reduces long-term damage caused by sun exposure.

Here are some of my personal favourite makeup products which include SPF:

  1. It Cosmetics CC Cream - an award winning CC cream which can be used as a foundation too! Beautiful medium to full coverage promoting a flawless look that resists creasing and cracking. Protects the skin with SPF 50, the cream also shields against the sun’s UV rays, this product is PETA Certified and cruelty free!

  2. Charlotte Tilbury Lightweight Mosturiser SPF 20 - One that I have recently added to my kit and have fallen in love with!A beautiful lightweight mosturiser perfect for non makeup days or just before applying your everyday makeup. With SPF 30 this is a great product to have on the skin to protect overall. Click on the link below for more information on this fabulous product. My brides to be are loving it!

  3. Nars Cosmetics Radiance Primer SPF 35 - A lovely products to use just before applying makeup.

Applied beneath make up, it enhances the results of your careful artistry and prolongs its wear, with encapsulated sunscreen beads that release on contact with skin for luxurious broad-spectrum protection from the sun’s skin-damaging rays.

As we enjoy the sunny days of summer, it's essential to prioritise the health of our skin. By incorporating SPF makeup products into our beauty routines, we provide an extra layer of protection against harmful UV rays. From shielding our skin from premature aging to maintaining a more even complexion, SPF makeup products offer numerous benefits. So, don't forget to make SPF-infused cosmetics a part of your daily summer ritual to enjoy both beauty and sun protection simultaneously. I also cover this subject in 1-1 makeup lessons.
