    Yes, you can put primer on top of sunscreen. In fact, it is recommended to apply sunscreen as the first step in your skincare routine and then follow it up with a primer. Sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, while a primer helps to create a smooth base for makeup application.
    By applying sunscreen first and allowing it to fully absorb into the skin, you ensure that your skin is adequately protected. Once the sunscreen has settled in, you can then apply your chosen primer to help blur imperfections, minimize pores, and extend the longevity of your makeup. Just make sure to give each product enough time to dry before moving on to the next step for best results.

    Primer or sunscreen first?

    With summer fast approaching, you may be wondering about the best order for applying makeup. Should you put on your sunscreen first? Or should you start with primer or foundation? The answer is that there’s no correct order to follow when putting on your makeup, but there are some guidelines that can help make sure you have adequate protection from the sun.

    There is no correct order, but some people prefer putting on sunscreen first.

    There is no correct order, but some people prefer putting on sunscreen first. Others prefer to put on primer before foundation or moisturizer. If you want to wear makeup, then there are still more options: you can choose which type of makeup (foundation or tinted moisturizer) and how much coverage you want before applying your sunscreen.

    As long as you’re using an SPF-rated product with broad spectrum protection (UVA/UVB), it doesn’t matter what order you apply them in!

    Your skin type and level of sun exposure will determine the order in which you apply products.

    There are a lot of factors that determine whether you should put on primer or sunscreen first. If you have oily skin and are going out for the day, it may be best for your skin if you apply sunscreen first. However, if your skin is dry and sensitive or if you have acne-prone skin, then applying moisturizer or an acne treatment before putting on makeup could make sense.

    You might also want to consider what type of foundation/concealer/powder product(s) work best with each other: some brands claim that their primers blend better with certain types of foundations than others do; similarly with powders (if any).

    You should start with a moisturizer containing SPF.

    It’s important to use a moisturizer with SPF, and it’s especially important for people who are going out in the sun for more than a few minutes. The FDA recommends that everyone over 6 months of age use some form of sunscreen every day, but you also want to make sure that your skin has enough hydration so that it doesn’t feel dry and flaky after applying sunscreen. This can be especially difficult if you have acne-prone or oily skin–and those types of conditions are more common among teens than adults!

    One way around this problem is by using an SPF-infused moisturizer as your base product instead of just grabbing whatever lotion or cream happens to be lying around (or even worse: skipping out on any kind of skincare altogether). You won’t need much product at all because these formulas are designed specifically for sensitive areas like around eyes or lips where there isn’t much room for error when applying makeup later on down the line–just apply enough until everything feels smooth but not greasy (this usually means less than half teaspoon worth).

    Apply sunscreen before foundation and primer.

    • Apply sunscreen before foundation and primer.
    • Apply moisturizer before sunscreen, but after cleansing and toning your skin.
    • If you’re using a priming product, apply it after any serums or oils but before your moisturizer (if you use one).

    If you’re using a powder foundation, make sure it has SPF and apply it before your concealer or powder blush.

    If you’re using a powder foundation, make sure it has SPF and apply it before your concealer or powder blush.

    If you’re going to be wearing sunscreen on top of your makeup, apply that first. It will help keep everything in place throughout the day.

    Anytime you’re in the sun, use sunscreen.

    While it might seem like sunscreen should be a summertime thing, you should use it year-round. The sun’s damaging rays are strongest from May through October, but they can still reach your skin even when it’s not hot outside.

    Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating heavily. You don’t need to apply sunscreen all over your body every time you go outdoors–just apply enough so that you’re protected from UVB rays (the ones that cause sunburn) on exposed parts of your body (face, neck). Don’t forget about ears and hands!

    Try to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays, which can cause early aging as well as skin cancer.

    A broad-spectrum sunscreen protects against UVA and UVB rays. Both types of UV radiation can cause skin damage and increase your risk for skin cancer. They also can contribute to early signs of aging, like wrinkles and age spots.

    To find a good broad-spectrum sunscreen, look for one with at least SPF 30 (the higher the number, the greater its ability to protect against sun damage). “Sunscreen is not just about blocking UVB rays,” says Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. “It should be broad spectrum so it protects against UVA.”

    You want the best protection from the sun possible so you can keep looking young for decades to come!

    When it comes to sunscreen, there are two main types: chemical and physical. Chemical sunscreens contain ingredients such as avobenzone (which absorbs UVB rays), octocrylene (absorbs UVA) and oxybenzone (absorbs UVB). Physical sunscreens include titanium dioxide or zinc oxide which reflect harmful rays away from your skin. Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen that offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays–and apply generously!

    Apply sunscreen before makeup because makeup contains oils that can reduce its effectiveness by up to 50%. Also make sure you’re applying enough–the average adult needs 1 ounce per application; if it’s not enough coverage then reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming/sweating heavily

    The bottom line is that there is no right or wrong order to apply your makeup. The best thing you can do is choose products with SPF, wear them daily and reapply when necessary. If you want to be extra careful about the sun’s harmful rays, then start with sunscreen before foundation or primer so that they won’t block any of its benefits!
