We all know that sunscreen is essential, but our lazy asses consistently slack on slathering it on; hence, why we often opt for skincare and makeup with sunscreen built in to cut our morning routines short. That said, it’s important to reapply the SPF on mid-day.
How do you do that without effing up your nicely done face of the day? You can settle for a convenient spray or mist, or a portable powder compact that fits nicely into any handbag. We’ve sussed out some of our top picks, so don’t make anymore excuses for not keeping your skin safe!
