Especially during the summer, we’re all used to hearing “make sure you wear sunscreen!” or “don’t forget to reapply!”  But half the time we just rub it off our shoulder or pay little attention to it!  But what about makeup that has SPF included in it?  Does that actually get the job done when it comes to protecting our skin?  Keep reading to find out!

Most sun damage comes from everyday sun exposure, not just those few days you spend at the pool.  Think about the times you take your dog for a walk, go outside for a run, or even step outside to get the mail.  Your skin is exposed to the sun’s rays whether you realize it or not and you need to be well prepared! You can go about this in either one of two ways.  You can find a foundation with a built-in SPF that works perfectly for you!  You might be thinking that it would be hard to find a product that works just as well as your regular foundation and protects your skin at the same time, but almost all of your favorite brands have products that offer the best of both worlds!Chelsea Crockett - SPF Makeup

As for the other way you can go about skin protection, simply get a moisturizer that has a built-in SPF.  This will both hydrate your skin and protect it when you’re in the sun.  This is a good option for those of you that don’t normally wear foundation or other face makeup regularly.  By doing this you’re still getting the SPF protection you need without using harmful sunscreen chemicals on your skin.
