We’re all looking for a lightweight mineral sunscreen that prevents sun damage, protects against UV rays and also helps even out skin tone, right?! Look no further than this list of the best facial sunscreens for all skin types, including sensitive skin, dry skin, oily skin, and those who want more coverage.
Best advice my mom ever gave me? Wear sunscreen every day! Her incredible skin is proof that daily use of sunscreen works! Yesterday we talked about sunscreen for the body, but today I wanted to focus on the best sunscreen for the face.
Now I know it’s tempting to just smear sunscreen all over your face, but I really wouldn’t recommend it (nor do most dermatologists) — especially if you have acne-prone skin. Oftentimes, body sunscreens use much heavier oils that are likely to lead to clogged pores and breakouts.
Also, natural sunscreen for the body tends to leave that “white cast” that pure zinc oxide gives you, so you’ll probably want a different formula for your face so you don’t look like a ghost. But if you like it – do it!
I’ve spent the last few years trying out different natural sunscreens for the face, but in the last year or so brands have come out with some really great products. I can honestly say that the natural face sunscreens you can buy these days are just as good if not better than traditional chemical sunscreens.
As mentioned yesterday, always look for a product that has this Broadband SPF (includes both UVA rays and UVB rays).
Personally, I also like a face sunscreen that adds moisture and hydration with a slight tint to cover any white cast. Additional product benefits (like hyaluronic acid and niacinamide) alongside sun protection are always a plus.
Whether you use sunscreen to prevent skin cancer or wrinkles, promise me one thing: wear it! Here are the best sunscreen products for the face…
