Why you must use a separate face cream and sunscreen

Why must you use a separate moisturiser and sunscreen?

I get it, it's beyond convenient to use a moisturiser with included sunscreen on your face. One less step in the morning and you can tick that box as done - you've protected your skin, right? Sorry to be a party pooper, but, wrong!

AND we know that sun protection is the best ANTI-AGING! So, this is serious.

I will give you 3 very good reasons why you need to use a separate sunscreen from your moisturiser.

1. Firstly, it's important to understand how the two actually work. Sunscreen is meant to sit on the surface of the skin to act as a defense between your face and the sun - it sits on the surface in order to block out those harmful UV rays - that's its job. A moisturiser, on the other hand, is designed to work the opposite and its purpose is to penetrate the skin in order to treat and hydrate.
