Powder foundations with SPF for sun protection touch-ups
Straight off the bat, we need to make it clear that in a country like Australia where UV rays are so powerful, a powder with SPF alone is not going to provide you with an adequate amount of sun protection.
Although they may say SPF20 or 30, the amount of powder you would need to put on (7 x the amount you usually would) for that level of coverage means you are most likely not getting anywhere near the amount of protection advertised.
However, if you want something to add an extra layer of defence, or a little something to help you with SPF touch-ups throughout the day, a powder can help (a little bit) with avoiding sun damage.
