You know how every dermatologist — and skin care guru, for that matter — in the world tells you that you not only need to wear sunscreen, but that you need to reapply it throughout the day? It's some of the best advice out there, but it's common for people to skip SPF reapplication for fear they'll mess up their makeup. After all, one does not simply slather sunscreen on top of their perfectly made-up face.
That's where SPF sprays come into play. Not only do they help keep your makeup in place, but they're easy to mist on anytime of the day so you can rest easy knowing your skin is shielded from all those UV rays. We've got six awesome options for you... which means you've now got zero excuses not to reapply! Keep a bottle in your purse, at your desk, and near the front entry of your home.
