As the weather warms up it’s often the case that we want to use more multi-use products, both for ease and so that our skin doesn’t ever feel ‘heavy’ in heat and humidity. I often find that I don’t wear as much base makeup in the summer either as my skin has a more natural glow to it – so tinted sun protection products can be great to add into your morning routine!
I wouldn’t recommend any creams-with-spf-in-too as a substitute to your daily sun protection but rather in addition to sun protection as often the cream can dilute the amount of sun protection – but tinted SPFs are more like ‘complexion enhancers’ in terms of tints, and are essentially a proper sunscreen with a light coverage to even out the skin a little. I tend to add a little concealer after, too.
If you are in the sun for an extended period you also want to be reapplying sunscreen – and the tints give you an easy way to do so as you can ‘top up’ your spf at the same time as your makeup rather than applying a cream over foundation which can create pilling.
Below I’ve added my tried-and-tested tinted SPFs for summer that give a wonderful glow and colour to the skin alongside sun protection. Enjoy the sun – and wear a hat!
