A Guide to the Perfect Sunscreen Routine

Step Up Your Sunscreen Routine

Sunscreen is essential, so why do so many people skip out on it? Wrinkles, leathery skin and hyperpigmentation happen every time you step into the sun unprotected, even if you can’t tell right away. And, once it crops up it’s much harder to get rid of. Luckily, our new Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 is a clean sunscreen that provides chemical-filter-free sun protection every day. We’ve put together recommendations for the REN Clean Skincare products that work best with Clean Screen, making it easy to add to your daily skincare routine.

Moisturize, prep, and protect.

Always start your morning skincare routine with your face serums, treatments and clean moisturizers. Layer them underneath your sunscreen and give them a few minutes to soak in. If they’re layered on top they don’t absorb as well and they can lose their potency. And, they may negatively impact the effectiveness of your SPF. 

Our Evercalm™ Global Protection Day Cream is a great moisturizing option to start your day. Layered underneath Clean Screen, it calms, hydrates, and offers crucial protection against free radicals. Combining Clean Screen and Global Protection Day Cream gives a double dose of protection against premature aging culprits. 

If you’re looking to brighten your skin and your morning, the Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream Moisturizer works wonders under Clean Screen. Not only do you get the smoothing and re-energizing benefits of the vitamin c and magnesium, but research has shown vitamin c has the potential to work harder when layered under sunscreen.

Makeup or no makeup- rock both confidently.  

Clean Screen uses rice extract and finely milled nano-zinc oxide to protect and keep your skin looking matte and fresh all day. Use around half a teaspoon to completely protect your face and neck. Follow up with our Perfect Canvas Primer Serum to plump and smooth the skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines without the use of silicones. Combining Clean Screen and Perfect Canvas delivers a smooth, soft matte look and helps to minimize the appearance of pores. Perfect for no-makeup days.

Have a big day ahead? Or just want to rock a glam makeup look? Create the perfect base for your makeup that mattifies, smoothes, and most importantly protects your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Apply Clean Screen after your moisturizer to create a protective layer. Then, follow-up with Perfect Canvas to even the skin and create a ‘grippy’ layer that holds on to makeup without slipping or sliding. This combination provides the perfect base for your makeup to sit on without looking shiny, separating or piling throughout the day.

Cleanse away the day and let your skin breathe.

As important as sun protection is, giving your skin the chance to breathe at night is crucial for clear, glowing skin. Grab a skin cleanser such as our Rosa Centifolia™ No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm to wash away dirt, makeup, and sunscreen before you go to sleep. The rich cleansing balm melts into the skin, washes away impurities, and leaves your skin nourished and calm, the perfect step for a good night’s sleep.
