Makeup With SPF—Is It Enough?

Various makeup products that contain SPF

You must wear sunscreen. Every day. All year 'round. Even when it's cloudy. Every. Day.

I don't make the rules, but them's the rules. Did you know that sunscreen is the only proven "anti-ager," in that it acts as an effective preventative measure against irreparable UV damage to your tirelessly hardworking skin cells. Harsh, but true.

So, you're slathering on an appropriate amount of SPF as the last step of your morning skincare routine, right? Or do you hate the overly-greased feeling of layering sunscreen on top of moisturizer, choosing instead to rely on your foundation with a measly SPF15? Or perhaps a tinted moisturizer with a slightly more robust SPF30? Are you just going rogue with an SPF 10 setting powder and calling it a day (the true chaotic evil)?? I fear for you.

I'll be honest — sometimes I slather on my favorite tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 (ahem, it's the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer) and let that be that, but that's only if I know I'm not going to be spending a ton of time outside. And even then...sometimes I get spooked, thinking "is this enough? Am I truly covered??"

What do you think? Do you rely on the sunscreen in your makeup or do you include SPF as its own step in your daily routine?

Unless you live in an underground or windowless bunker and never see the light of day or have artificial UV lighting in your presence then, alright fine, you can forgo it. But that's the ONLY disclaimer.
