Hey all..I have never wore sunscreen separate on my face unless within a moisturiser I have used..do I need to wear sunscreen everyday and for what reason? Do I stick to moisturiser with a SPF in it or use a separate sunscreen altogether? I'm confused help!!?

It depends what you're doing. If you're gonna be outside for long periods of time in direct sunlight then i definitely think you should wear sunscreen. If you're laying out by the pool or on a beach, you should use real, strong sunscreen... but for your average day to day life, your moisturizer should do just fine.

Depends on how easily you burn. In my opinion, and I do this daily, I use spf 50 kids sunscreen on my face everyday under my bb cream when I'm not being a couch potato. Even if you don't feel burnt or have redness you could have a sunburn. Plus it's better to be safe than sorry. No one wants blemishes or wrinkles!

Yes you need to wear sunscreen if you intend to be outdoors for a short or long
period of time.

I wear sunscreen every day, rain or sunshine...

Yes wear separate SPF not the combined one in moisturizer. Better texture, won't interfere with other key ingredients.

What separate moisturiser would I use for my face? :smile:

what type of skin do you have... dry, oily combo?

You would want a moisturizer that is a little lighter as the summer is here

There are some good drugstore brands also health food stores..

If you live near an Ulta or Sephora, just go & test a few

Yes yes yes. Never leave house without sunscreen. I use an SPF 50 on top of moisturizer.
