Medical Daily - Wearing Sunscreen under Makeup — Why It’s Important - Sabrina Bachai

 – June 6, 2013  –– 

Although dermatologists recommend wearing sunscreen every day, most people don't. Unless your foundation has an SPF already in the formula, it's recommended that you apply some sort of SPF face lotion before applying any face makeup. Some dermatologists even recommend wearing sunscreen even if your foundation has an SPF in it. Dr. Marina Peredo, MD, Clinical Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, recommends that everyone, including women who wear foundation, apply sunscreen every day.
