While cold temperatures make layering your clothing to elegant effect a challenge, the warmer months bear a layering quandary of their own. How to incorporate sunscreen into your morning beauty routine


Cleansed and moisturized skin is always a must before sunscreen, Another factor to consider is weight: When layering products, try to keep them lightweight across the board or build from thinnest to heaviest.


Doubling up on your sun protection is never a bad idea. Besides the added protection, a separate sunscreen also covers areas that moisturizer sometimes neglects, like the ears, neck and décolletage.


Exhibiting patience between your sunscreen and foundation pays off. As long as you give sunscreen enough time to settle in, most makeup will behave normally. Put on your sunscreen, then have a coffee and give it time to soak in before topping off with foundation.
