The best tinted sunscreens of 2023

God bless the sun for giving us life, but by now, most of us know that too much exposure to the sun isn't good for us. We know it's vital to protect our skin from the sun's harmful UV rays, yet many people still skip sunscreen because it's a hassle, it has "chemicals," or they want a sun-kissed glow.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer is the most common cancer globally, and by the age of 70, 1 in 5 Americans can get it. We forget that consistently using sunscreen can protect us from skin cancer. The sun is also responsible for 80% of skin aging, so spending a few minutes applying sunscreen and avoiding spending too much time in the sun between 10 AM and 2 PM (when the sun's rays are the strongest) can protect you from the sun's UVA (causes aging) and UVB (causes burning) rays.

That's why I never skip sunscreen, and now I am a huge fan of tinted sunscreens. What I love about tinted sunscreen is that it keeps your skin safe and makes you glow. It makes your skin look like your skin but better.

One of my favorite things about the CeraVe Tinted Sunscreen is that it works for everyone, regardless of skin type or skin tone. CeraVe is also among the top three most popular skincare brands.

This universal tint adjusts to everyone and can be used as a primer under makeup or worn on its own. Plus, it doesn't hurt that it has niacinamide to brighten and three ceramides to strengthen the skin barrier.

What makes Odacité SPF 50 Tinted Mineral Drops unique is how it has skincare benefits, protects you from the sun, and works like a cc cream.

I love it has PA++++ protection against long-term aging and antioxidant green tea to protect against oxidative stress.

It's even great in the summer as it gives you that golden glow without looking greasy, and you can choose from five shades.

The beauty of this universally flattering YSE Beauty SPF 30 Primer is how it works with all skin tones and can be used as a tinted sunscreen or a primer under your makeup for the extra glow.

It has sodium hyaluronate that keeps skin looking plump and fades fine lines. I have tried it as a primer and a skin tint, and it works so well both ways.

A must-have for traveling, this lightweight onekind SPF 55 serum adjusts perfectly to all skin tones and types (even if you're the sensitive kind).

It brightens and hydrates your skin while giving it an unmatched radiance.

It also has sea buckthorn extract to help against breakouts and pimples.

Probably the first tinted sunscreen I fell in love with because it gives you a flawless, even finish while keeping you safe from the sun.

I love the combination of sunscreen and makeup in one.

Plus, it's infused with antioxidants to protect against free radicals.

I was lucky to get my hands on this always-sold-out Daybird Tinted Skincare SPF 50 because this multitasking miracle is "a serum, moisturizer, sheer makeup, and mineral sunscreen" in one.

Unlike other tinted sunscreens, it also has bisabolol that helps with inflammation and makes your skin look more even.

It's available in four shades so you can find your perfect match and stay glowy.
