By now you already know that it is very important to wear sunscreen, but not everyone realises that you must re-apply your sunscreen a few times during the day to maintain the protection. It is not enough to apply a moisturiser with an SPF. You need to apply a sunscreen over your moisturiser and then re-apply the sunscreen a few times a day. Wearing a sunscreen every day is a crucial part of your skincare routine to prevent exposing your face to damage from the sun.
Reasons for wearing sunscreen
