What is a good tinted moisturizer product?
I’m glad you asked this but it’s a little more complicated than you think! Here are some things to think about. Are you truly indoors all day or are you outside some walking, gardening etc? How much time do you spend in your car commuting or doing errands? Remember UVA goes through car windows and window glass. Do you exercise mid day outside? What are your other activities – like hiking on weekends or cycling? How much sun did you get growing up? What skin type are you? What climate do you live in?
I think you see what I mean. For example, if you grew up in a northern climate, have a medium skin type, and don’t spend much time in your leisure time outdoors, you might be fine with Laura Mercier SPF 20 tinted moisturizer for daily use. If you spend a lot of time in your car, then that doesn’t have enough UVA protection but you could use the Mercier moisturizer and then put the Colorscience Powder over it for better UVA coverage. If you have a lot of baseline sun damage and a history of skin cancer, you need to double sunscreen every morning on the exposed areas.
