When you have sensitive skin sunscreen shopping gets a bit more complicated. Chemical sunscreens can be irritating, while mineral formulas often leave a not-so-pretty whitish cast. Happily, this mineral-based SPF has a gentle, skin-friendly formula and is available in two sheer tints. It leaves a natural finish with no residue. Plus, since it’s packed with natural moisturizers and antioxidants, it’s the perfect addition to our anti-aging arsenal.
How it Works
The star ingredient is non-micronized zinc oxide, which shields your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays rather than absorbing them like chemical sunscreens. Broccoli seed and other natural oils replenish your skin with much-needed fatty acids, while antioxidants like coffee fruit extract boost your skin’s ability to fight off free radicals.
How to Use
Shake well and apply over face, neck and any exposed areas of your décolleté. Use every morning, even on days when it’s raining or you’ll be inside most of the day.
