13 Best Tinted Sunscreens That Guarantee Seamless Blending

Wearing sunscreen all day, every day can feel like a drag, but the best tinted sunscreen can actually make the daily slather enjoyable. That’s because tinted sunscreen has the ability to provide both lightweight coverage and SPF protection—a seamless way of getting your daily dose of sunscreen in. Not only that, but that tint can eliminate one huge gripe of typical sunscreens—namely, their hard-to-blend, white, or chalky residue.

In addition to defending your skin against fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and skin cancer caused by UVA and UVB rays, tinted sunscreen goes a step further. For instance, says board-certified dermatologist Dendy Engelman, MD, tinted sunscreens can block visible light. That’s kind of a big deal, she explains, since “it’s a key cause of hyperpigmentation, especially for those people who are more vulnerable to developing dark spots or melasma.”

Some can even guard against blue light. That said, “not all tinted sunscreens protect you from blue light,” says board-certified dermatologist Karan Lal, DO. “Look for iron oxide on the ingredient list to confirm your sunscreen can.” Many tinted sunscreens use mineral blockers, so you’ve got a decent chance of finding one with zinc oxide, which will sit on the skin and refract harmful rays like tiny mirrors (as opposed to chemical sunscreens, which absorb UV rays first).

The best tinted sunscreen can be tailored to skin type and concern, thanks to well-known actives. “Antioxidants, like vitamin C, are great ingredients to have in your sunscreen formula because they provide additional protection against free radical damage and photoaging,” Dr. Engelman explains. (Photoaging is the damage to the skin caused by the sun.) Peptides are helpful, too, as they help boost collagen. And the presence of hyaluronic acid, shea butter, or squalane is a great moisturizing bonus in tinted sunscreen. 

On the flip side, there are certain ingredients people with sensitive skin should avoid. “If you have sensitive skin or are prone to eczema, then steer clear of chemical sunscreen ingredients such as avobenzone, oxybenzone, homosalate, octinoxate, octocrylene, and octyl salicylate, which can be a common cause of allergic contact dermatitis,” says Dr. Lal.

With all this in mind, keep scrolling to see the latest and greatest formulas to slot into your skin-care routine, stat.
