Yes, for sure! Before putting on BB cream, you can and should put on sunscreen. This is a common step in skincare and makeup routines because it protects your skin from the sun’s dangerous rays and gives your BB cream a smooth base. Here’s why and how you should do it:
Why should you put on sunscreen first?
Protection from the sun: Sunscreen should be your go-to defense against UV radiation from the sun’s harmful UV rays to avoid sunburn, premature aging and skin cancer.
Even Skin Tone: Sunscreen can help keep your skin tone even by stopping sun spots and freckles from happening.
Base for Makeup: Putting on sunscreen before BB cream makes a barrier between your face and makeup, making it easier to put on evenly and smoothly.
How to put on sunscreen first:
Choose the Right Sunscreen: Select an SPF 30 sunscreen that provides UVA/UVB coverage across a wide spectrum of wavelengths for best results, taking care to consider any unique characteristics such as oily, dry or sensitive skin conditions when making this selection.
Cleanse and moisturize: First, ensure your face is clean by using a light cleanser and adding in your favorite moisturizer.
Put on sunscreen: Get enough sunscreen and use an even application over your entire face and neck area – don’t forget your ears.
Wait for Absorption: Before heading outdoors, give your sunscreen time to absorb into your skin before heading outdoors – this step is vital if you wish to protect yourself against UV radiation and keep yourself safe.
Apply BB Cream: Once your sunscreen has taken effect, use fingertips or makeup brushes to apply BB cream in an even and natural fashion for optimal results. For optimal outcomes use both tools together for best results.
If you want to put on more makeup, like foundation, blush, or eyeshadow, do it after you put on BB cream.
Finish with Setting Spray: Setting sprays containing SPF will keep your makeup in place while offering additional sun protection.
Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen regularly during your outdoor time, even when in indoor settings. While BB cream with SPF may offer some additional protection, nothing beats true sunscreen when it comes to UVA/UVB ray protection.
In conclusion, using sunscreen before BB cream is a smart and necessary to protect yourself from sun damage while creating the ultimate makeup look. Simply adding this step to your skincare and makeup regime could have profound benefits both health-wise as well as cosmetically for both yourself and others.
