Sunscreen Spray for Face: Best Facial SPF Mists for Redheads

Add an Extra Layer of Protection

SPF facial sprays are becoming increasingly popular, and for redheads who wear makeup, it is a must for your collection. Keeping your face protected throughout the day no longer means messing up your redhead makeup. Here’s everything you need to know about SPF facial sprays: 

The benefits of SPF facial sprays:

There are plenty of ways to stay protected without an SPF spray, but if you wear makeup you will benefit greatly from having one. Withtraditional sunscreens, they have to be applied under makeup which means reapplying requires you to take the makeup off; or you can choose to apply on top, but it may get messy or you might choose to not reapply. When you don’t re-apply SPF, it means your face isn’t protected and you run the risk of sunburn, skin cancer, and sun damage.

Facial sprays can be applied over the top of the makeup throughout the day, both refreshing the look and adding a layer of protection. Win, win! 

Facial SPF spray vs. regular SPF spray

You probably have a bottle of spray sunscreen for your body and might be wondering if you can use it on your face. The answer is yes, but at a cost. Most body sunscreen is not formulated for the face and may leave your pores clogged and/or cause your makeup to look oily and messy. For sensitive-skinned redheads, you really need something that is intended for your face to make sure you aren’t irritating your already sensitive redhead skin.

Is SPF facial spray enough?

Like many spray or mist products, there’s always room for error and missed spots. The best way to use an SPF facial spray is in conjunction with other SPF products.

This is an ideal way to prep your skin for the sun:

  • Apply sunscreen under your makeup, or choose a foundation with SPF factor
  • Spritz SPF facial spray and reapply every 2 hours
