It’s all fun and games in the sun till your skin starts peeling and pigmentation starts creeping up. Sun damage is the number one cause of skin ageing. It breaks down collagen and elastin—the building blocks of healthy, glowing skin—and also makes skin dehydrated and rough. So it’s no wonder that beauty editors, insiders and derms agree that sunscreen should be a key part of any daily beauty routine.

It’s easy to apply—and even reapply—sunscreen when you’re at the beach or working out outdoors. But when it comes to daily application under your makeup, that’s when things start to get a bit messy. Yes, layering sunscreen with makeup can be a bit complicated, but I do it every day, and so can you.
