A Guide to the Best Foundations with SPF

No7 foundations with SPF

Sun protection is an essential part of a healthy skincare routine. Wearing SPF every day helps to protect the skin from harmful UV rays and delay the appearance of sun damage-related signs of aging.

Keep reading to discover exactly what SPF foundation is, why you should apply sunscreen every day, and the best SPF foundation for healthy, radiant and younger-looking skin.

What’s SPF?

Sun Protection Factor, or SPF, describes the length of time before which exposed skin will start to burn. When used as directed, broad spectrum sunscreens provide protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

Applying SPF daily, even on overcast days, helps to protect the skin from UV rays, maintain overall healthy-looking skin, and delay premature aging.

What is foundation with SPF?

Foundation with SPF and tinted moisturizer with SPF combine the protective qualities of SPF with the coverage of a foundation, for skin that feels protected and appears perfected.

*To be safe, it’s advised that makeup with SPF isn’t solely relied on to provide adequate protection from UV rays. SPF Foundation should be used alongside standard sunscreen with the required strength.

How to apply foundation with SPF

Foundation with sunscreen can be applied in the same way as foundation without SPF.

Before applying SPF makeup, follow a skincare routine that includes moisturizer with SPF to create a smooth canvas with added protection.

Step 1: Cleanse and tone the skin with your favorite No7 cleanser and toner

Step 2: Moisturize the skin with a SPF moisturizer

Step 3: Apply a No7 primer for a smooth and perfected base

Step 4: Apply tinted moisturizer with SPF or foundation with SPF using a foundation brush

Step 5: Set the makeup with sunscreen in place using setting powder
