Pale faced Beetlejuice isn’t exactly the look I’m attempting to replicate when using SPF, but Beetlejuice tends to happen sometimes, especially when using a physical sunscreen. I generally try to avoid sunscreens that leave a white cast on my skin (by using several of these ones that don’t leave a white cast). But, I’d rather suffer through the white residue than do without, and this is the product that helps me fix that horrid white cast from sunscreen.
White Cast From Sunscreen and The Product That Helps Me Fix It
Foundation helps hide the white cast, but, personally, foundation isn’t a daily inclusion in my regimen and my skin has benefitted because of it. I break out less, look glowier, and overall the health of my skin is better when I stick to light makeup on the daily, only using more makeup when there’s a special occasion.
So, how do I fix the white cast from sunscreen?
The SPF I was using that left a little bit of white cast on me is the Derma E Mineral Sunscreen. Still, I like it because it’s more moisturizing so I can skip moisturizer in the morning if I want to. After SPF I use half a pump of the D-Bronzi, rub it between my finger tips , and then pat on where I would usually apply bronzer. Then, I rub the leftover residue over the rest of my face to blend seamlessly after I’ve concentrated most of the product where I’d naturally use bronzer. This brings color and bronzey-ness back to my face so I don’t look like Casper the friendly SPF ghost. Plus, the antioxidants and peptides from D-Bronzi provide added protection and skin benefits.
You definitely could use any old bronzer in place of this, but I find that using a product with additional skin-protecting ingredients instead of a true makeup product makes me feel better about what I’m putting on my skin every day. It’s a trick that does two things at once. It prevents ashy looking skin and adds a little extra shield in the battle against sun-aged skin.
p.s. Don’t forget to use SPF every single day, even when it’s cloudy outside!
