If you hate wearing heavy foundations daily but your skin can't deal with the ultra-hydrating formulas of tinted moisturizers and tinted sunscreens, we have the answer for you: skin tints! Skin tints give your complexion a "your-skin-but-better" look without feeling or looking mabigat. Before we recommend you our picks, here's a refresher on how a skin tint is different from a tinted moisturizer and a tinted sunscreen:
Skin Tint vs Tinted Moisturizer vs Tinted Sunscreen
A skin tint is a lightweight foundation that may or may not contain SPF protection. They usually have a buildable coverage with a natural or matte finish. Tinted moisturizers, meanwhile, provide complexions with minimal coverage and maximum hydration. And last, a tinted sunscreen is a base product that gives barely any coverage but comes with high SPF protection.
Now that you know how *different* the three are, here are amazing skin tint options you can try, depending on your budget!
The Best Skin Tints To Try
BLK Skin Tint Sun Shield SPF 30
BLK's Skin Tint will give your complexion a fresh, hydrated appearance. It leaves a natural finish on the skin and can lightly cover old acne marks, dark spots, and redness. P.S. Just because this product contains SPF doesn't mean you shouldn't apply a separate sunscreen before. Check out our favorite sunscreens here.Continue reading below ↓Recommended Videos
