Second beauty question: I am aware I should be using sunscreen on the daily but am confused about where it fits in in a routine. Eg:Does it go cleanser toner moisturiser sunscreen?Or cleanser toner sunscreen moisturiser?And what if you add an oil in there?
Comments and suggestions would be appreciated.
I cleanse, tone, serum or oil, moisturise, and then apply sunscreen, purely because I want all the other products to sink into my skin and the sunscreen to sit on top. Also I don’t want to “dilute” the sunscreen with moisturiser, if I’d applied them the other way around. I also wait a few minutes between applying the different products, to give each time to sink in.
NZ has a shocking selection of sunscreen to choose from so I have been dabbling in some Japanese ones and they are amazing. I've just been trialling this one and am blown away by how cosmetically elegant it is. It goes on white, dries down to a soft shine which I can then apply my tinted sunscreen over the top followed by mineral foundation. Sits all day beautifully.
Check out Japan Mart. Everything is in Japanese but you can take notes and go home to research about it.
Dr Dray on youtube has many, many videos on sunscreens that will hopefully point you in the right direction on how to select one.
PS Many sunscreens also contain moisturising ingredients so you can skip the moisturiser and just use the sunscreen.
I normally cleanse , tone, serum day or night cream . I also like to put serum on after a face mask .
I won't give the full details of my skincare routine (will take too long lol) but I do skincare then sunscreen then makeup. I think what Trudi does with the sunscreen spray over makeup is brilliant and I keep meaning to do that to top up during the day. There's a lot of debate currently about whether we should also wear sunscreen when we are inside all day due to exposure through windows and also from blue light.
I was a bit slack about wearing sunscreen every day as most of the dedicated sunscreens are just so awful. That was until I discovered the Mecca Cosmetica ones. They seem expensive but are lovely to use - they just feel like really nice skincare and a small tube lasts a long time. I don't need to use moisturiser when I use them.
I have a little container on the table next to where I sit to watch TV at night and that's where i put my hand creams that I need to let sink in such as Rosehip, where I wouldnt normally have the patience to wait haha
re oil, if you have dry hair you can use it on the ends of your hair
I do like the Mecca To Save Face Spf50+ Superscreen for the lightweight feel but I think I do get a more spf protection with a bit of zinc and a higher PA rating with the Oasis Beauty Apple a Day but each to their own.
