Is it can or not use foundation and powder at the same time to protect from sunburn?

Yes, definitely, and it's a very good thing to do. I would refer you also to, Paula Begouns' site? she answers a million
questions there on beauty and skin care, and she's honest too.

Hi ashareena,
Most foundations contain spf products in them, so yes, using foundation and powder should help with sun damage.
Best wishes,

You can use a foundation and powder together for sunburn proteection but you should also use a sunblock lotion underneath. Most powders and foundations do not have a strong enough SPF to fully protect from sunburn.

I strongly agree with Dzoobaby, you also need 50spf under the foundation & powder. I have the skin cancer on my nose to prove how careful you need to be Good luck!

I actually use kids sunblock. It's almost all spf 50, & my Dermatologist said I shouldn't ever go without it makeup or not. I'm very fair skinned & was a 60 & 70's bikini babe! I buy CVS drugstores called Sport spf 50 Solatec. It's great as a lotion, very water & sweat resistant & hypoallergenic. I don't wear makeup as much anymore since I'm retired, but am in my yard as much as I can be, & they make one that has a clip to attach to your belt or beltloop. It's great! As a warning I've had 3 burned off my nose, have another one, one on my leg & one on my shoulder. (Cancer, that is) Good luck, Mary free discount card
