The order of application
The best way to get the maximum sun protection is by pairing sunscreen with a vitamin c serum. This not only helps the skin to form a barrier against sun damage but also nourishes the skin from within to heal the damaged tissues recover faster. The basic order of application should be: Cleanser - Toner - Vitamin C - Moisturizer - Sunscreen. Always make sure your sunscreen is broad spectrum when pairing it with vitamin c serum.

Makeup with SPF in it
There is a high demand for tinted moisturizer with SPF in it, followed by compacts with SPF too. These are amazing options for someone who loves to add up the SPF game. But can work the total opposite if these makeup products with SPF are used as a replacement of sunscreens. In a nutshell, you cannot replace sunscreen with any makeup product that has SPF in it.

Over massaging while applying
We all know that sunscreen must be applied 20 mins before stepping outdoors. But we also need to keep in mind that sunscreens do not require a lot of a massage for it to evenly spread on the skin. It just requires light application evenly and then leave it for 2-3 mins for it to sink into the skin. Over massaging sunscreen will only leave the skin with less sunscreen as half of the product will be on the fingers.

The three finger rule
Honestly, there are no golden rules when it comes to the amount of sunscreen that must or must not be applied. The only rule of sunscreen is, it has to be all over, whether it be the face or the exposed part of the body with enough amount to feel moisturized and well protected.

White cast is not normal

Switching to better quality sunscreens are a must as sunscreens are literally the only way to protect our skin from sun damage and other environmental radicals.
