It’s not just the scorching hot sun that we have to worry about, UVA, UVB rays, and pollutants are travelling in the air even though you can’t see them. That’s why applying daily sunscreen is a must when it comes to skin protection. As long as you are stepping out from your home, sunscreen must be applied no matter your age, gender and colour.
Daily sunscreens on the market now are more than just skin protectors. Many of them include moisturising properties while more advanced sunscreens even have anti-ageing properties. The choices are indeed endless (there’s practically one for everyone out there) and finding a sunscreen that doesn’t leave a white cast on your face seems to be quite a challenge.
Physical sunscreens are the ones behind the white finish (it’s not the same effect that brightening skincare products give). Ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are great against UVA and UVB rays and they don’t get absorbed by the skin — hence the white layer on the skin. However, even though physical sunscreens are proven to be safer, both types of sunscreens should also be applied correctly to be safe.
From gels to milky-like sunscreens, these daily sunscreens definitely will not leave a white cast on your skin after application. You won’t have to worry about looking ‘white’ in your photos anymore.
