Here’s Why You Should Opt For Tinted Sunscreens This Summer

There’s no dearth of articles on the internet that will tell you why you need to wear sunscreen every single day of the year. We’ve all read these before, and we will be reading them again as summer days make a comeback. We’re well aware of the numerous benefits that sunscreen provides. But you know what’s better than just sunscreen? Tinted sunscreen! This multipurpose beauty fits perfectly into our summer routines — it delivers a healthy, even glow while giving you the protection you need. I, for one, would totally recommend getting your hands on one of these complexion perfectors. But before we tell you why you need it, let’s understand what tinted sunscreens are.

These base-perfecting products pack the benefits of sun protection with a tinge of pigment to give you a flawless base. This magical formula blends right into the skin, delivers perfect coverage, conceals, and helps combat sun damage, too. Tinted sunscreen lets you have the best of both worlds — we’re talking even coverage and sun protection. We’ve got a multitude of formulations to choose from and a shade for every skin tone.

Benefits Of Tinted Sunscreens

Now that you know what this multipurpose beauty product is, let's move on to the benefits of tinted sunscreen.

• Tinted sunscreens for the face are enriched with ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that block harmful UV rays and work for all skin types including sensitive skin.

• They also work as a hydrating primer for your foundation by camouflaging pigmentation and uneven skin tone. s

• Tinted sunscreens add a natural glow without leaving a white cast or ashy finish.

• All you need is a dash of tinted sunscreen to help protect your skin and give your skin a visible glow!

What To Look For In Tinted Sunscreens

According to a study, when it comes to choosing the right tinted sunscreen, be aware of opting for one with broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or above to get the best results. Also, look for ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Such minerals provide hydration and protection for a longer period, as compared to their chemical counterparts. And most importantly, pick a formulation that meets your needs. We’ve done the guesswork, so you don’t have to. So, go on, find one that perfectly suits you.
