Spring has sprung and summer is on the way. The warmer weather is inviting more outdoor activity which means it’s more important than ever to apply sunscreen.
While sunscreens come in an array of sun protection factor numbers and consistency for different skin care types, they are now adding color to the ingredients. Skin Care Heaven, a skin research center and e-shopping hub based in Encinitas, has picked their favorite tinted sunscreens for this summer.
“Sunscreen has come a long way being that most are featherweight, oil-free and colorless,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “But they’ve come even farther because while they deliver solar protection some offer a tinted color to give us a sun-kissed look.”
This combination is growing really popular, said the spokesperson. While this summer sunscreen trend makes headway, Skin Care Heaven picked a couple tinted sunscreens which have received excellent feedback.
On the list is Dermaquest Skin Therapy ZinClear SPF 30 in Tan. “This Dermaquest product offers excellent coverage for various types of skin needs,” she said. “A physical and broad spectrum sunscreen, zinc oxide is part of its top ingredients which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.”
While offering a good solar defense, it also has antioxidants to help fight free-radicals which can spur premature aging.
Next on the list is EltaMD Skincare UV Physical SPF 41 Tinted Sunscreen.
“This chemical-free sunscreen offers an impressive SPF protection and is ideal for sensitive skin,” said the spokesperson.
Its natural mineral ingredients include zinc oxide and titanium oxide.
Like other sunscreens on the market, this tinted gem is water resistant, paraben-free and oil-free; and, it glides on silky smooth.
“These tinted sunscreens are so versatile that they can be applied by itself or underneath makeup,” she said. “The best part of all is that they will give you a healthy looking glow and keep your skin safe.”

As many enter their forties, they begin to notice uneven pigmentation also called age spots. They can vary in shades of color and sizes such as freckles or even larger patches. And more times than not, it’s a skin imperfection people want gone.
What causes this hyper-pigmentation is often sun overexposure.
Skin Care Heaven, a leading e-commerce skin care store, spa and research center based in Encinitas, has chosen its best selling pigmentation correction products. While handpicking their top winners, they took mature, premature aging, normal, dry, and sensitive skin care types into consideration.
In their best pick list is Obagi Nu Derm Clear. A hydroquinone-based product, it does an excellent job diminishing pigmentation issues.
“Obagi Nu Derm Clear is one of the best products to clear up age spots and remains one of the best skin bleaching creams around,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “This product is also one of our staff favorites.”
Obagi Nu Derm Clear is part of a skin care system but can be purchased separately.
Another product offering great results is the DermaEarth EnLighten Cell Brightening Serum. This product is hydroquinone-free, arbutin-free, kojic-free and paraben-free. “This DermaEarth line uses multiple peptides and other natural pigmentation correction ingredients to reduce sun spots, age spots and other uneven skin tone issues,” said the spokesperson. She continued, “This is truly a great natural, but scientifically driven treatment for uneven skin tone.”
One more hydroquinone-free product on the list for those sensitive to hydroquinone is Dermaquest Skin Therapy Skin Lightening Serum.
“Users of this Dermaquest line notice how their skin lightens and brightens which makes it a win-win product,” said the spokesperson, adding how it gently exfoliates. The kojic acid, she explained, minimizes pigmentation issues and also helps ward off future melanin damage.”
With any pigmentation correction products, sunscreen must always be worn and reapplied when outdoors.
Ongoing use of these types of systems will unleash healthy and more flawless looking skin.
