If you’re worried about sun damage and want to prevent premature aging (um, so, most of us), one of the best things you can do is wear sunscreen every day. Yup, even when you’re sitting inside. There’s just one problem: The thought of reapplying midday and ending up with a streaky mess as the sunscreen mixes with our makeup isn't exactly appealing. So we just don’t reapply. And when we’re getting more sun exposure during the summer months, that’s a major no-no.
The solution? powder sunscreen. Experts agree that while it shouldn’t be the only form of sunscreen you use (most powders don’t have a high enough SPF, nor do people apply enough of it for adequate coverage), it’s a great way to boost your protection throughout the day. After you apply your heavy duty SPF in the morning, keep a powder version on hand to reapply later without the major hassle of a lotion.
