A powder sunscreen mimics the texture of setting powder, so it's easy to apply. Most formulations have a brush to make application easier. Powder based sunscreens are easy to apply over makeup, and they don't feel heavy like other sun protection creams or lotions.

Benefits Of Powder Sunscreen

  • Reapplication Is Easier: Powdered sunscreens feel more like setting powder than the white goop you're undoubtedly used to seeing with SPF, which means you can easily reapply it over your makeup.

  • Easily Fix Into Your Purse: Most powder sunscreens come in tubes or in compacts small enough to fit in your smallest clutch purse.

Powder sunscreen should be used as a reapplication or touch-up every two hours after applying a regular, liquid sunscreen. Under makeup, a strong coating of sunscreen ought to be applied, and then when it’s time to reapply your sunscreen you reach out to your powder sunscreen for easy application. Spray and powder sunscreens are useful for reapplication but not as a primary way of protection from the harmful rays of the sun.
