Carefully squeeze out the sunscreen up to 1 - 1.25 cm. And gently blend the product on the skin of the face to provide you with a matte, compact finish. Avoid applying on a sweaty face. It works best when the face is dry, if need be, under or against a fan's airflow.
Howrah Sunscreen works best for those who have sweaty, greasy skin but who also desire a better colour match. If you are someone who loves Besant, you may like Howrah a lot. The natural tint in Howrah comes from Silymarin, which provides a good complexion match with most Indian skin tones. With its mousse finish and light feel on the skin, Howrah has sebum adsorbing properties and works great as a sunscreen for the face. So if you are looking for a sunscreen for oily skin, your search stops here.
Safescreen Howrah Sunscreen is a mousse sunscreen and so has the effect of a finishing cream on your face. So, while you may be able to use highlights or contours with ease, it may be difficult to add on products like liquid foundation or cushion foundation over this sunscreen. By itself, this sunscreen gives a good, mattifying effect with minimized pores. If you need a more dewy finish with better blendability, you may want to consider SAFESCREEN Munnar or Teesta.
If your skin is dry, We recommend using a mild moisturizer like the Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel or OptiMIST™️ WaterBody™️ Aqua a few minutes before applying Safescreen Howrah Sunscreen. For more information on using a moisturiser with your sunscreen, you can check out the guides here and here.
Safescreen Howrah Sunscreen is highly water and sweat-resistant for up to 8 hours. So once a day, reapplication would be sufficient for this sunscreen.
Double cleansing with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser or single use of Avene Cleansing Foam / Cetaphil Foaming Cleanser would be adequate to remove Howrah sunscreen. If you wear makeup along with Howrah sunscreen, it would be better to use a biphasic makeup remover with daily exfoliants such as the Light Routine Easy or Milk Route Daily to thoroughly remove the product residue.
Layering another safescreen on top of safescreen Howrah sunscreen is not recommended as it has a mousse texture, because of which it does not easily take many other products on top of it.
Yes, you can apply OptiMIST WaterBody Aqua moisturiser a few minutes before applying safescreen Howrah sunscreen if you feel your skin is dry.
