Beauty Myth of the Day

Scandle Candle's Beauty Myth Countdown

Myth #6:

Layering several products with SPF ratings increases protection.


Your skin is only protected by the highest SPF rating of one product, no matter how many you apply. Let's say you apply a moisturizer with an SPF of 10, sunscreen with an SPF of 20 and foundation with an SPF of 15, you do not have a protection ratio of 45 you have the protection of the product with 20 SPF.

You best bet is to apply one product with a good SPF to handle the job, the more products containing an SPF you put on, don't mean you are better protected.
