Does your foundation have enough SPF?

ARE YOU REALLY COVERED? 

We all hate doing it but know we have to put it on.  Sunscreen.

Otherwise known as the “arghhh” step of the skincare regime, is it really that important, or does your foundation have enough?

We age up to 80% faster than we are genetically predetermined to, usually due to our environmental exposure to UV. We were never made to sustain Australia’s harsh UV and in fact when compared with someone of a similar age in England our skin is 10 years older… no we’re not joking.

Despite what it says on the packaging, powder and liquid makeup foundation does not have level of SPF you need to stay sun safe and prevent damage. Realistically you would need a heaped teaspoon of product on your face alone to get the stated SPF coverage.

All of that with only a ¼ of the chemicals found in sunscreens, oh and did we mention is comes with a tint!
