Sunscreens are an absolute essential; those who wear sunscreen every day would agree that stepping out during the day without a layer of SPF feels like a crime. It protects the skin from both UVA and UVB rays of the sun, which are responsible for causing some of the most common skin problems like dark spots, premature ageing and uneven skin tone.
Like most skincare products, sunscreens are evolving too. While earlier your only options were gel and cream-based sunscreens, there’s another option available in the market now – tinted sunscreens. Here are four reasons you need to invest in a tinted sunscreen like the Lakme Sun Expert Tinted Sunscreen 50 +++ SPF right away.
- 01. Adds a sheer hint of colour
- 02. Perfect for all seasons
- 03. Gives a matte finish
- 04. Does not leave a white cast
01. Adds a sheer hint of colour
Apart from protecting your skin from the damaging rays of the sun, it adds a sheer hint of colour that enhances your complexion and gives your skin a healthy glow. The two-in-one benefit helps you get ready in minutes, making it perfect for those busy mornings when you don’t have time for an elaborate makeup routine.
02. Perfect for all seasons
Your skin tends to become sticky in the summer and monsoon; wearing a foundation or any other cream-based product will make your skin appear greasy and dull. Tinted sunscreen is perfect for every season because it gives a natural finish, isn’t heavy and keeps your skin looking fresh throughout the day.
03. Gives a matte finish
Unlike tinted moisturisers, tinted sunscreens will give you a matte finish. So, if you were worried about your oily skin looking oilier, fret not; it is a lightweight and non-sticky formula that will prevent your face from looking like a sweaty and oily mess.
04. Does not leave a white cast
Most sunscreen can leave a white cast on your face. But when you use a tinted sunscreen, you don’t need to worry about that; it will blend into the skin easily and enhance your natural skin tone.
