Tinted Sunscreens

Tinted sunscreen provides the best sun protection, because iron oxides (the tint) are the only way to prevent sun spots and melasma caused by blue light. Make sure you use the highest SPF you can (at least 30 SPF, but 50 SPF is always better), and remember to re-apply every two hours. Re-applying your SPF is essential, as sun damage will start to occur at the two hour mark, so if you're wearing makeup and can't reapply the liquid or cream sunscreen you used in the morning, use a powder sunscreen like Colorescience Brush On SPF.

Dermatologist Tip: Apply a full 1/2 tsp of sunscreen to face and neck daily in order to achieve the advertised SPF.
