Summer has started and you are feeling the heat. Have you checked if you’re wearing enough SPF protection? Do you know if you have enough protection with just your foundation?

We all know about wearing sunscreen, but do we have enough in our daily makeup to combat those harmful UV rays?

The most important thing to look out for when choosing a foundation is whether the foundation contains SPF protection. Most foundations do include SPF protection, although it may be very limited.

However, that doesn’t mean you will have to apply sunscreen on top or change your foundation. It just means that you need to apply an SPF Primer before applying your foundation.

When purchasing foundations with SPF and SPF Primers, you are better off investing in a trusted product, rather than wearing cheaper versions. It’s your skin after all!

Here are some of the best makeup products with SPF.
