Re-applying sunscreen

Personally, I don't feel comfortable applying anything on my face without washing my face first. So I'm kinda struggling with the idea of re-applying sunscreen. I understand that we should only wash our face twice a day (morning and night). However, I've been seeing that we should re-apply sunscreen for at least every after 2 hours? I haven't been able to do it yet because my issue with wanting to wash my face first. Do you have any advise for me? Will I breakout if I re-apply sunscreen without washing my face first? What do you do before re-applying sunscreen? Thank you for your time in advance. :)

I reapply sunscreen for about 4-5 hours, as I mostly stay at home and I use SPF 50. I only reapply at midday. I use micellar water to cleanse the previous residue then rinse it with water. After that I apply some moisturizer then proceed with the sunscreen. So far it never causes me any problem.

today I went out a lot so in total I reapplied 4 times. I have dry skin so it’s not a problem for me to layer and layer. I never wash my face when I reapply and I only wash my face at night time and I personally have never broken out but then again my face isn’t sensitive. maybe you could wipe with a moisturizing thicker toner like an emulsion and then follow up with some sort of sunscreen whether it’s a spray, stick, or a lotion.

omg same! I don't feel comfortable reapplying sunscreen without cleansing my face first! But yea I'm also afraid that I might be over-cleansing so what I do is to use those oil sheet to eliminate the oiliness then I spray my face with any face spray or mist then reaaply the sunscreen ♥️

I feel a bit gross when I reapply sunscreen especially when sweaty that is why I double cleanse at night to wash the layers of sweat and sunscreen
