These Primers With SPF Offer UV Protection From the Ground Up

With a high dose of sun protection and a foundation-gripping base, SPF-infused primers are 2-in-1 products that give you everything you need to start your day off on the right foot. No two formulas are alike, so to help you streamline your shopping process, we’ve listed the five best SPF-infused makeup primers for different skin types. Plus, we tapped three experts who share insights on why we should consider this skincare/makeup hybrid and how to best use them. Just make sure you use enough (the rule of thumb is two-fingers worth of sunscreen) to make sure your skin is protected. 

Board-certified dermatologist, Diane Madfes, adds that if you plan on being outside, you should also reapply sunscreen every two hours, even if you have a layer on under your makeup. “Primers tend to break down throughout the day with normal oil production,” she explains. And yes, doing so is important no matter the time of year or what your skin tone is. “We see skin cancer in all,” reminds Dr. Madfes.
