Ive’ been trying to get more serious about my skincare, and the easiest way to feel like I’m making an effort has been to get serious about SPF. But as you’ve probably heard, you need to reapply your SPF every two hours to be fully protected. I’m like, “umm, I have a full face of makeup on so forget it.” Well, Supergoop! felt our pain and launched a new SPF 45 in setting powder form.
Use it to set your makeup in the morning and then dust it on throughout the day to refresh your SPF. I went for translucent because I’m used to using setting powder in that shade, but it comes in light, medium, and deep as well.
Now, I chatted with the Supergoop! team and think it’s important to mention that this should not replace whatever other SPFs you’ve woven into your routine. I use Supergoop!’s Unseen as a base (after a toner and serum) and eye cream with SPF around my peepers, followed by a BB cream with SPF, and finish off my makeup application with the setting powder for three total layers of UV protection. I’d also recommend a hat for days you’ll be walking out and about outside.
Plus, I take extra care every single day to protect my eye area and never leave home without a great pair of sunnies or a hat to block my eyes from unnecessary sun exposure. Pro tip: Because I’m always protecting my face, I like to use a sunless tanner—especially in winter months—to give myself a healthy looking glow.
