How do you make homemade tinted sunscreen?
What is the difference between sunscreen and tinted sunscreen? Bottom Line. The iron oxides found in tinted sunscreens block both UV and blue light, making them more effective than untinted SPF at protecting your skin indoors and outdoors. As an added bonus, tinted sunscreens also add a light touch of color to your skin and can be used with or without regular foundation.
Why is tinted sunscreen better than non tinted? The best line of defence against visible light is actually tinted mineral sunscreen. Here’s why: Mineral filters like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide “are used in the form of nanoparticles in sunscreens to minimize the chalky and white appearance on the skin,” explains the study.
What is the point of tinted sunscreen? Tinted sunscreens not only work to protect skin against sun damage, but because they offer sheer coverage, these tints provide numerous skin care benefits and can “camouflage imperfections such as blemishes, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation,” according to Riyaz.
