Can I Mix My Sunscreen and Moisturizer?

By June 30, 2013

Follow me on:

" I wear sunscreen and a moisturizer on my face everyday. Can I just mix them to save a little time? "

I love that this reader is being proactive about using sunscreen on his/her face! Not only will it prevent premature aging (wrinkles, saggy skin), it will help prevent skin cancer. Far too may men and women neglect to use sunscreen daily. Did you know that experts recommend wearing sunscreen even on the most cloudy of days? The sun's UV rays are so strong that they can easily penetrate the clouds.

The question remains: Can you mix your moisturizer and sunscreen? Check to see if you are correct...
