5 Tinted Mineral Sunscreens to Use Instead of FoundationMay 24, 2019
Tinted moisturizer and foundation are staples in our makeup collection for sure, but in our opinion, sunscreen doesn’t get nearly the love it should. After all, the skin-care staple helps protect our skin from dangerous UVA/UVB rays (and usually has additional skin benefits, too). With that being said, an innovative product to keep in mind when upgrading your makeup collection this season is tinted mineral sunscreen. These formulas help deflect the sun’s rays to keep your skin safe and can even out discoloration.
