When summer hits, many of us flock outdoors to have fun in the sun. What's more important than replenishing our vitamin D levels, however, is keeping our skin safe from harmful UV rays. If you're looking for an all-in-one solution to suncare, check out our range of tinted sun lotions. Not only do tinted sun lotions protect your skin from sunburn and other skin damage, they also even out your skin tone and hide your imperfections.
Some tinted sun lotion brands, such as Dermalogica and SkinMedica, go one step further and offer products that heal your skin by including antioxidants in the formula. These additional ingredients give your skin some much-needed rejuvenation and support its ability to restore itself, smoothing lines and helping with discoloration.
Another great thing about tinted sunscreen is that it can reduce the number of products you're using on your face. As mentioned earlier, the tint can hide imperfections and blemishes, so a tinted sun lotion can essentially eliminate the need for concealer or even foundation in some cases.
When choosing a tinted sun lotion, pick one that offers the right kind of protection. Dermatologists generally recommend sun lotion with at least SPF 30 to ensure protection against both UVA and UVB rays. The second thing you want to take into account is your skin type. Just like daily face moisturizers and foundation, there are different types of tinted sunscreen for different skin types. For dry skin, choose a lotion or cream, for oily skin, choose a liquid or gel instead.
Here at lookfantastic, we love tinted sunscreen because, unlike regular sun lotion, you aren't left with a white film on your skin. Just remember, tinted sunscreen is still very much like regular sun lotion in other ways and should be reapplied regularly and evenly, and especially after sweating or swimming. Be sure to keep your tinted sun lotion handy in your purse or beach bag.
