Sun Protection While Wearing Makeup With Eco-Friendly Sunscreen & Setting Spray

Apr 9, 2024

You don’t have to choose between flawless makeup and sunburns! Instead, choose a makeup setting spray with SPF 50 for best of both worlds.

There's no off-season when it comes to sun protection - this isn't the sun your grandma grew up under.

UV rays used to have an 'off-season' - or, well, that's what our ancestors used to tell us. And by ancestors, I mean likely your grandma or even your mom - because, yeah, sunscreen didn't really become 'a thing' till the early aughts, and even then it wasn't 'mainstream'. Today, most people are using it - as they should! - but what if you're wearing makeup, too? How do you reapply the sunscreen?

Have you tried using a makeup setting spray with SPF?

You can top off your SPF protection as many times as needed without ruining your makeup - and I'll tell you all about it...

Yes, you need sunscreen in winter, too - and yes, you need sunscreen regardless of skin tone.

I think that subheading kinda sums it up perfectly... And it makes sense - just because the sun isn't literally scorching your skin, boiling your blood, and making you sweat more than a cardio workout, doesn't mean the UV rays aren't getting to you; they are. And they're still dangerous.

So if you're thinking you don't need to put on sunscreen because it's winter, or fall, or cloudy - think again and then start applying sunscreen.

Also, if you're not fair-skinned - first of all, what's it like when you don't look like a tomato after one hour in the sun?    •but, more importantly, that doesn't mean you're safe from UV rays. No one is.

So sunscreen - always. Even with makeup. And here's how...

Like peanut butter and jelly - makeup and sunscreen are better together.

If you wear makeup, you've probably struggled to reapply sunscreen. Because who wants to redo all the makeup two or three times a day? ....That's what I thought! But you also can't afford to get sunburned, or worse.

Well, I'm here with good news - because, as I said, have you tried makeup setting spray with SPF?

Here's how it works, you apply the spray before applying the makeup; it provides sun protection for up to two hours. Once you need to reapply it, just spray your face again - and that's it. It won't smug your makeup - but it will give you two more hours of UV protection.

Rinse and repeat as needed. Neat, right?

If you're ready to check it out, Max and Louie - a New Zealand beauty brand - created the SPF 50 Hydra Shield Makeup Setting Spray, which is suitable for all skin types and made with natural ingredients such as:

  • hyaluronic acid and squalane, which hydrate the skin;
  • niacinamide, which nourishes the skin;
  • aloe vera, which protects the skin from information;
  • zinc oxide, which shields the skin from the sun's rays; and
  • glycerin and vitamin E, which moisturize the skin.

The spray is also eco-friendly, reef-safe, vegan, sulphate-free, and paraben-free. Because it's chemical-free, it's so lightweight you won't even notice it.
