"Even though there is SPF in your makeup, you’re not able to max­i­mize its cov­er­age. That’s be­cause you have to ap­ply seven times the nor­mal amount of foun­da­tion and four­teen times the nor­mal amount of pow­der to get the sun pro­tec­tion fac­tor on the la­bel. So, it's best to com­bine SPF makeup with a sun­screen."

THE HIGHER THE spf, THE BET­TER.

"SPF is based on the abil­ity of sun­screen to pre­vent ery­thema or red­den­ing of the skin af­ter sun ex­po­sure. If you com­pare one sun­screen to an­other in terms of SPF, you can tell how much one for­mu­la­tion of sun­block de­lays skin red­ness. This how­ever, does not tell us how ef­fec­tive the sun­screen is in pre­vent­ing dam­age to the skin. The rec­om­men­da­tion is to ap­ply an SPF 30 or higher." "When used cor­rectly, sun­screen with SPF 30 to 50 of­fers as strong pro­tec­tion as com­pared to a sun­screen with SPF 80 to100."
