We love a skin-care-makeup-hybrid such as the MDSolarSciences Mineral Tinted Crème, which protects your complexion with ample UV protection and gives you a subtle tint for a low-key day when you don’t feel like slathering on a BB cream or foundation.
Another slightly tinted SPF comes courtesy of a fan-favorite brand, Paul’s Choice. Meet the zinc oxide-powered Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30, which is chock-full of antioxidants such as green tea, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (THD, a super stable form of vitamin C), willow bark, and vitamin E to boost this product’s UV defenses and fight signs of aging.
