QCan I skip the sun­screen if I’m al­ready wear­ing makeup with SPF?

The dan­ger of re­ly­ing on just makeup for sun pro­tec­tion fac­tor (SPF) is you’re likely not get­ting enough pro­tec­tion, es­pe­cially if you just spot-cor­rect. Der­ma­tol­o­gist Raissa Fran­cisco-pa­sion says in or­der to be fully pro­tected, you need “a tea­spoon of sun­screen [with a min­i­mum SPF of 30] on your face and neck.” Ap­ply­ing less than that can de­crease your prod­uct’s pro­tec­tive pow­ers. (A pea-sized amount of SPF 30, for ex­am­ple, will only have the ef­fect of SPF 5.) So un­less you’re go­ing to use a tea­spoon of foun­da­tion all over your face—which we highly dis­cour­age—it’s still best to use a sep­a­rate prod­uct as your UV shield. GH rec­om­mends: Happy Skin Catch the Sun Brightening UV Gel Cream SPF 40, P999, for the morn­ing, and Catch the Sun On The Go Hy­drat­ing UV Mist, P699, for mid-day touch-ups.
