How do apply sunscreen?

Well i read it at a discussion lately that sunscreen should be apply on dry skin (not damp or wet) My question is is that mean we should wait till all our skincare to be completely set to the skin before we could apply sunscreen? Or is it just ok to apply right away after moisturiser?

I think everyone have their own method & way in applying skincare & sunscreen. for me I'll apply my sunscreen after all my skincare has fully absorb. maybe after 5 mins plus of waiting? then I'll apply my sunscreen. if I put on my spot treatment then I'll wait longer for it to absorb.

I do this too because I use a lot of products and I personally like to apply a facial oil after my serums (yes I know a lot of people do it another way but I don't because my skin holds hydration better my way).

yes as from what I know , sunscreen isn’t supposed to apply on damp or wet skin cuz the purpose of sunscreen is to form a solid protective layer on our skin to helps fight uva/uvb rays. if apply on damp or wet skin, the protective layer couldn’t form nicely means less protective layer on skin so I personally always wait for awhile until all my skincare is fully absorbed by skin then apply my sunscreen 😁😁

I apply my skincare in the morning before I leave for work. I'll apply 🔆 sunscreen around 2 hours later, if the UV index is above 2.

@farahaszar I fill in my brows, a bit of eyeliner & at times apply mascara after I'm done with skincare. Sunscreen later, depending on UV index ☺️

I personally like to apply my ss right away after moisturizer while it is still half-absorbed and then blend it togetger to prevent extreme white cast as I use physical ss. I don't like to apply it on dry skin as it tends to make the ss is difficult to spread and my ss is also not moisturizing enough.
