10 Best Tinted Sunscreens For Your Face {Natural & Chemical-Free}

Last Updated on

It’s no secret that sunscreen should be part of your daily beauty routine for sun protection and anti-aging.  But many women are debating what’s worse for your skin – your largest organ – using sunscreens that are full of chemicals or getting sun exposure. 

Fortunately, there are plenty of natural products on the market to alleviate that concern. If using natural mineral sunscreens on your face has you fearing that you’ll be left with an unflattering white chalky tint, think again. There’s plenty of great choices of mineral sunscreens formulated for your face with a light tint that will not only provide great sun protection but give you a gorgeous glow. 

Tinted sunscreen can be a girl’s best friend combining a light foundation with sun protection. If you’re looking to streamline your travel makeup bag, this is a winning combo. And with mineral sunscreens, you’re protecting your face and the environment with natural ingredients. Don’t forget to rub mineral sunscreens in thoroughly and allow time for ingredients to sink in.

And while sun protection on your face is vital, dermatologists also recommend wearing a hat and sun-protective clothing, so it’s a good idea to double up your sun protection for all your outdoor travel adventures.
