SPF is one of the best forms of protection for our skin. According to UVA Health, “minority populations, particularly Hispanics and Blacks, do not regularly wear sunscreen or take other steps to protect themselves from the sun.” While our melanin offers some protection, we still need to wear sunscreen. 

Oftentimes, wearing sunscreen can be a hassle, especially when you’re left with that sticky white residue after application. However, these tinted moisturizers are exactly what you need to cover, conceal and protect yourself from harmful ultraviolet rays. “Not only do we need to wear SPF every day, but we also need SPF that blocks against blue light,” said Dr. Anne, founder of the skincare and beauty brand Absolute JOI. “So the way that we manifest age is through dark marks and dark marks are essentially our reaction to any kind of damage.” Wearing sunscreen though pertinent for protecting us against skin cancer and other health disparities as a result of the sun, is also especially important now that we are staring our screens for hours at a time. Protecting your skin has many future benefits for your overall health and wellbeing, and helps the process of aging. “ SPF helps to reduce the dark marks and it protects us against the sun. So it’s an excellent anti-aging intervention. I was also very deliberate in wanting to include a mineral sunscreen in our tinted moisturizer because so many of us have skin sensitivities and allergies to chemical sunscreens,” says Dr. Anne. 

Our everyday skincare routines include a lot of steps. Adding a tinted moisturizer to your routine can cut down your process by a landslide. Here are the ones you need in your beauty bags.
