How to Up Your SPF Game

How to Up Your SPF Game


You’ve heard it all before. “Layer up on sunscreen! Don’t forget to re-apply! Don’t worry about that icky white cast SPF gives your face, you’ll thank yourself later when you’re wrinkle-free!” Suffice it to say, we all know how crucial it is to protect our skin from harmful UV rays. However, making sun protection a priority can truly be a pain in the you-know-what. On the real though, it doesn’t have to be babe. In fact, making SPF a part of your daily beauty regimen can actually be seamless. All you need are the right products, the right routine, and a little help from your besties over here at BBE. We’ve got you. Keep reading to learn about how you can up your SPF game… the easy way!

Invest in a facial sunscreen that won’t make you cringe when you apply it.

We listed this tip first in our guide on how to up your SPF game because it seriously is a major key in making sun protection easy.

Here’s the thing. You’re not going to be motivated to apply a sticky, thick, SPF cream on to that pretty face if you know it’s going to feel like a disaster. Think about it. How many times have you purchased an SPF heavy cream that you swore you’d use, but ended up tucked away in a drawer because it didn’t feel right on the skin. Talk about a waste, babe!

Instead of having the best intentions and striking out in the SPF department, invest in a sunscreen that is specially formulated for your face. BBE’s facial sunscreen is lightweight and is silicone-free. What’s more, it will layer perfectly with your favorite moisturizer without causing pilling or any thick, greasy residue.

With a facial sunscreen like this one, you’ll be reaching for it every morning – along with that beloved fresh cup of java!

Keep a mineral sunscreen stick on hand on makeup-free days.

If there’s one good thing that has come out of quarantine, it has to be how much more willing we are to go makeup-free. And when you’re not wearing foundation, bronzer, blush (you know, the works!) you’re at a great SPF advantage.

This means you can freely re-apply your SPF throughout the day, without worrying about messing up your glam. The easiest way to do so is with one of BBE’s mineral sunscreen sticks. Throw one of these bad boys in your purse, and you’re good to go – no messiness involved!

Moreover, you can use one of these trusty sticks to protect other exposed areas of your skin. You know, like that delicate chest area that would have totally burnt after one too many margaritas in the sun. But lucky for you babe, you came prepared! With a BBE mineral sunscreen stick ready for sun battle.

Ditch old-school foundation, and stick with a tinted moisturizer… SPF included.

Not everyday can be a makeup free one – we get that! And we love glamming up as much as the next girl. However, we don’t think you should have to choose between evening out that skin tone and protecting yourself from the sun.

This is why BBE created the stellar SPF loaded products above, but with a tint! Genius, we know. And trust us when we say, you’ll never reach for an old school liquid foundation again after using one of these babies.

Lightweight and seriously blendable – girlfriend you need a BBE tinted sunscreen in your life! You'll look fab and be crushing the SPF game, all in one!

BBE also makes a tinted version of this sun protector, and you’ll love how easily it applies to the skin. Simply blend it in with your fingers or your favorite beauty sponge.

Add on a bit of mascara and lip balm, and there you have it – you’re ready to be out the door in 5 minutes flat! Plus, you’ve just applied your makeup and protected your face from those harmful UV rays. We’re all about multitasking around here!

Finally, if you’re scared of SPF leaving you looking oily, reconsider your layering moisturizer.

If your skin tends to be on the oilier side, we know how scary it can be to even think about applying an extra layer of product to it. Even when that product is going to prevent wrinkles and keep your skin healthier, longer!

If this is the case for you beautiful, consider what kind of facial moisturizer you are layering your SPF with. Opting for an oil-free product may be just what you need to ditch feelings of greasiness – forever. Oh and, to forget being afraid of entering the SPF game regularly!

BBE’s oil control moisturizer pairs perfectly with our facial SPF. It sinks into your skin effortlessly and will keep you looking matte for way longer.
