At the risk of sounding like a broken record, sun protection is essential to stave off ageing as ultraviolet rays are the biggest source of skin damage. Besides applying sunscreen, we also need to touch up our sun protection every two hours or so, especially if you’re outdoors. But if you’ve applied makeup, reapplying regular sunscreen can cause the makeup to smudge and slide off. That is why we recommend using powder sunscreens to touch up your sun protection. They provide a convenient manner to do so as you just swipe the powder across the face.
Powder sunscreens also help mop up excess sweat and shine. In a pinch, they double as dry shampoos as well (your scalp needs sun protection too!). Here are 8 compact powder sunscreens to throw into your handbag and touch up on the go.
