Should I moisturize my face before re-apply sunscreen?

Hi everyone 👋🏽 I wanted to seek for your opinion on how do you reapply your daily sunscreen. Do you also use moisturizer everytime reapplying your sunscreen or just straight using spf. I heard some people said you should moisturize when reapply sunscreen, while other said sunscreen with hydrating ingredients don’t have to do so. Any ideas? Or maybe you guys have any other step before re-apply spf like spraying mist or even use a toner, mind sharing with me something new. Thankyou in advance 💕☺️

Some people with oily skin don't even use moisturisers in the mornings if their sunscreen is moisturising enough. So no, I don't think you need to re-apply your moisturiser (or other steps) unless you cleanse your face halfway through the day and do it all over again. I do occasionally do that on hot summer days if my skin needs it but on a normal day that would be too stripping for the skin.

I'd still only go for a sunscreen. Splashing water doesn't really remove oils and products off of your skin.

I think it is not needed especially when you reapply a moisturizing sunscreen! adding one will only make you greasier. so pass

Up to you really. If your skin feels dry you might need some. But you need to wait till your moisturizer is dried and absorb before applying sunscreen. Like sometimes you just don’t have the time especially if you are outside and on the go. Some sunscreen are moisturizing enough on it own.

I don’t think you need too. most spfs are quite hydrating on their own 😊
