Stepping into the world of skincare can sometimes feel like learning a new language, with an endless list of products to navigate. Yet, one essential product you'll want to familiarise yourself with is tinted sunscreen.
From its dual functionality in shielding against UV rays and subtle enhancement of skin tone to its application technique, in this blog, we delve into everything you need to know about tinted sunscreen.
Tinted sunscreens are specialized sun protection products that not only shield the skin from harmful UV rays but also contain pigments to impart a subtle colour. These products combine the benefits of traditional sunscreens with the cosmetic appeal of a tint, offering coverage and protection in a single application.
The effectiveness of tinted sunscreens lies in their ability to provide broad-spectrum UV protection, guarding against both UVA and UVB rays. The active ingredients in these sunscreens, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, create a physical barrier on the skin's surface, reflecting and blocking the sun's rays.
Tinted sunscreen is becoming a beauty bag essential, and for good reason. They pack an array of benefits when incorporated into your skincare regimen. Let's dissect these plus points further:
Choosing the right tinted sunscreen involves considering several key factors to ensure optimal protection and coverage. Here's what to look for:
Tinted sunscreen caters to a diverse audience, offering a solution for those seeking a balance between sun protection and a polished complexion. It is particularly suitable for individuals who desire light coverage to conceal blemishes, redness, or uneven skin tone without the need for a full face of makeup. Tinted sunscreens are versatile and can be applied on all skin types, making them inclusive for individuals with dry, oily, sensitive, or combination skin.
Now that we know what tinted sunscreens are and their benefits, let’s understand how to apply them. Applying your tinted sunscreen the right way can boost your skin's protection and achieve a flawless finish. Below, let’s take a look at the strategies you can adopt to apply tinted sunscreen in your daily skincare regimen seamlessly:
Preparing the Skin Before Application: Start by cleansing and moisturizing your face. This serves as a smooth canvas for the tinted sunscreen.
Applying Tinted Sunscreen with Fingers: Applying tinted sunscreen with your fingers can help the product warm up - thus, fostering seamless blending into your skin. Dot the sunscreen on your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin, then smoothly blend outward.
Using Brushes for Application: Using brushes can offer a more professional finish. Dab the sunscreen on your face with the brush and blend across for an airbrushed look.
Setting the Tinted Sunscreen for Long-Lasting Wear: To set your tinted sunscreen for a full day of wear, finish with a light dusting of loose powder. This step helps control excess shine and also gives a more finished look. Check out our SPF Top-Up Loose Powder for setting and easy reapplication of sunscreen.
