What should we apply first moisturizer or sunscreen? I read at few places that sunscreen should be first thing to interact with clean face and at others that moisture after sunscreen change it's properties and abilities to protect skin. So please suggest which to apply first and why? Thank you for the help.

Anyone needs to be applied at a time and never apply it together and it’s better to avoid going in direct sunlight and if necessary sunscreen to be applied during day time and moisturizer to be applied at night
