The Lipstick League Question of the Week
How do you protect your face from the sun? Do you use a moisturizer or foundation with SPF, or do you use a separate sunscreen for facial sun protection?
G's answer: if I know for a fact that I won't be out much during the day aside from occasionally running to and from my car into buildings, I just rely on the SPF in my foundation and/or moisturizer for protection. But if I'm going to be out in the sun for any prolonged period of time, then I use a separate sunscreen with at least SPF 30 either in place of my daily moisturizer or on top of my daily moisturizer (before my foundation). My skin is oily so when its hot, the sunscreen usually takes the place of my regular daytime moisturizer.
