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.”
