The sun might not be shining as much these days, but that doesn’t mean you should stop wearing sunscreen.  We get it – it’s not necessarily your first instinct  to reach for it once the weather changes.   But it’s pretty much a universal truth that all skin care professionals believe that the best way to prevent premature skin damage is by using sunscreen faithfully.

Kari Gran Three  Sixty Five SPF 28 is a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects from both UVB (burning) and UVA (aging).   UVA rays are still present even when the sun isn’t shining so that’s why we’re on such a mission for you to look at sunscreen as an essential step in your daily skin care routine, all year long.

Mixing Karin Gran Three Sixty Five SPF28 with your foundation is an easy way to make sure you’re protected every day.  That’s why we were tickled to see that Integrity Botanicals posted a shout out to Kari Gran Three Sixty Five 28, along with a  how-to tip on how to mix  it with mineral foundation to create a liquid foundation with SPF



“This new SPF serum from Kari Gran has been a favorite since it launched this summer. I’ve been so impressed with the beautiful formula made with naturally protective oils like red raspberry seed oil and French plum seed oil. With 9 ingredients total, Three Sixty Five is perfect for sensitive skin, and it wears just like a daily facial oil, replacing the need for an additional moisturizer in most cases—especially during this time of year. I love the way that the Three Sixty Five SPF 28 brightens and evens out my complexion, creating an almost airbrushed effect. The catch is that it’s not completely invisible—the non-nano zinc oxide leaves a barely there trace. It is a non-nano mineral sunblock after all.

While I’m pale enough for this not to matter so much, it occurred to me that the Kari Gran Three Sixty Five SPF 28 would be the perfect medium to mix in my slightly too dark WELL PEOPLE Altruist Mineral Foundation.  (Of course, we recommend using Kari Gran mineral foundation instead.)  

I was right, and now I’m obsessed with my “new” liquid foundation with SPF. Here’s how I do it—first I tap a small amount of the Mineral Foundation into the palm of my hand. You don’t need a lot at all and you can customize the amount used based on the type of coverage you want. Then I add one pump of the Kari Gran Three Sixty Five SPF 28 to the foundation and blend right in the palm of my hand. The two blend quickly and seamlessly in a matter of seconds. You can see the liquid foundation coming together right before your eyes. This is all it takes to completely cover my entire face. I smooth this combination over my skin using my fingers to blend, and voila—I’m moisturized, protected and even-toned. Any hint of white from the SPF is gone and the once too dark foundation is now a perfect match.”
