tinted sunscreen

When it comes to nailing the no-makeup look, it’s important to use a sheer base that will enhance your complexion. And since you want to preserve the look of fresh skin, it’s important to choose a base product that can protect you from external stressors such as the sun’s harmful UV rays. For this, why not try a tinted sunscreen?


What's a tinted sunscreen? 

Tinted sunscreens are almost like regular sunscreens except they contain a little bit of pigment, which can help even out the skin.

How do you apply tinted sunscreen? 

Remember, you need to apply enough tinted sunscreen for it to protect your skin. As Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, tells Health"It may look like makeup, but it is sunscreen and should be applied like regular sunscreen." He recommends applying a quarter-sized dollop of tinted sunscreen to your entire face. You may simply use your fingers to evenly spread out the product. 

Below, we list some of our top picks for when you want to show off a glowy complexion and shield your skin from the sun.

1. Belo Tinted Sunscreen SPF50 PA++++

P169.75, Lazada

For some serious sun protection, go for this tinted sunscreen by Belo. It has broad-spectrum protection against harmful UV rays and Cell Protect technology to prevent premature aging. If you’re worried about getting a good color match, you’ll rest easy knowing that this sunscreen also has tone adapt technology, so it adjusts to your skin tone while evening out fine lines and dark spots.  


2. Maybelline Lightweight Super BB Moist Matte Cream SPF24 PA++

P399, Lazada

BB creams were really popular a few years ago, and we think it’s time to bring them back to everyone’s radar. This foundation-sunscreen hybrid by Maybelline not only offers sun protection, but also matte coverage—something rare to find in tinted sunscreens. Once you put it on, your skin will look poreless, fresh, and hydrated! 


3. BioBalance Mattifying Face Aqua Fusion SPF50+

If you have oily skin, you might be avoiding sunscreens altogether—they’re notorious for looking greasy, after all. But it’s important to protect yourself, so try this mattifying base product. Not only will it keep your face looking matte, it’s also formulated with nordihydroguaiaretic acid and oleanolic acid—to help control oil production—and lactic and fruit acids—to help gently exfoliate the skin and shrink pores.
