You Still Need Sunscreen With Your SPF Makeup
Supergoop, a fun-to-say sunscreen brand, is known for clear, non-sticky formulas. Since its launch in 2008, the line has developed a cultish following of skincare devotees who swear the products give them UV protection without the telltale white streaks of other sunscreens.
Dr. Nava Greenfield of Brooklyn’s Schweiger Dermatology Group is a fan of Supergoop’s sunscreen, but remains skeptical of layering. “If you are using an SPF 30, it’s helpful to layer with SPF makeup, but it may not be necessary,” she said.
Should you double dip and put an SPF 30 eye shadow over your SPF 50 sunscreen, do not expect to leave the home wearing SPF 80. “SPF is not additive in that way,” Dr. Greenfield explained. You will still only have an SPF of 50 on your face, but the extra makeup can serve as a physical barrier between the skin and the sun.
