Let’s start out with a quote from one of our previous blogs…. Sun exposure is the SINGLE MOST reason we age prematurely. No ifs, and’s or but’s. According to Skincancer.org, more than 90% of the visible skin changes associated with aging are actually caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays.
So there we have it! The absolute best way to take care of your skin is to stay out of the sun, wear a hat and wear sunscreen! Super easy! In fact, I’ve been noticing several Cheeky’s on Instagram and Facebook as of late sporting their adorable hats and I couldn’t be more proud.
I probably sound like a broken record at this point, but sun protection is seemingly something I’m super passionate about 😉 Don’t worry, I won’t be on my high horse too much longer and we’ll be getting into the fun stuff soon. But wearing sunscreen every day and following some simple skincare routines & tips is the way to glowing skin. Before we get into the topic at hand, our favorite tinted sunscreens, let’s do some reviewing of what to look for in a sunscreen for your face (& bod):
- UVA & UVB is a must
- 35-50 SPF is the best
- Broadspectrum sunscreen should be your jam
- I personally love to use a liquid AND powder tinted sunscreen because that way I can touch up all day long
- Find products that have titanium dioxide and zinc oxide
- If skin pigmentation is a problem, look for products that contain iron oxide
Alright now that you’re sun pro’s, let’s figure out which liquid or powder tinted sunscreen is best for you.

Side note: I was VERY disappointed in the lack of DARK tinted sunscreens… it was really quite appalling… article – But check out this article I found that shows you some sunscreen options that help avoid the ‘white cast’.
