Happy New Year! With the start of a new year, and resolutions aplenty, we thought we would remind you of the optimal SPF routine to keep yourself sun-protected all 2022 long! With a new year comes new routines, but that doesn’t mean you need to change your SPF routine! Need a refresher on how to layer your skin/suncare? We’ve got you covered (literally)!
Face SPF Routine
Layering your skincare/suncare can be a slightly confusing task. Have no fear, Bare Republic here to clear up any confusion on incorporating SPF into your daily face routine! Even on the days when you don’t wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, applying SPF daily is of utmost importance! There’s no time like the present to establish a healthy, and sun-protected, morning routine.
After washing your face and applying your preferred moisturizers/serums, grab your favorite Bare Republic face product to lather on some SPF! We suggest opting for our Mineral SPF 30 Face Sunscreen Gel-Lotion! With shea butter and cucumber and aloe extract, this ultra-lightweight SPF lays nicely on top of moisturizers/serums. This product also acts as a nice primer for makeup so feel free to apply your makeup directly on top of your SPF!
Now, just because you put some SPF on in the morning does not mean you’re protected for the entire day-- SPF is not just a one-and-done application! We encourage reapplication every 2 hours to ensure safe sun protection. We love using our Mineral SPF 50 Sport Sunscreen Stick for easy on-the-go reapplication! This product easily glides onto skin with its sheer, non-greasy formula, making it the perfect pocket-sized reapplication product!
Body SPF Routine
When it comes to body sun protection, we suggest starting with a lotion and then reapplying with a spray to make sure you are totally covered! Lately, we have been obsessed with pairing our Clearscreen® products together. Beginning with our Clearscreen® SPF 30 Body Sunscreen Lotion, apply this non-greasy SPF lotion liberally to your body for clean sun protection! For re-application, and to ensure full protection, we opt for our Clearscreen® SPF 30 Body Sunscreen Spray to provide extra coverage!
Mineral more your thing? We’ve got that too! For a mineral body SPF routine, we pair our products the same way as with Clearscreen®, lotion then spray. In this routine, we suggest starting off with our Mineral SPF 50 Body Sunscreen Lotion for physical protection. When it is time to reapply, reach for one of our Mineral Sport Sunscreen Sprays! We love to pair this lotion with our Mineral SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen Spray – Coco-Mango for that additional layer of physical protection!
New routines and the start of a new year go hand in hand. This year, make sure you start off on the right foot by developing, and sticking to, an SPF routine that keeps you protected for all of life’s adventures!
