3 Non-Toxic SPF Tinted Moisturizers

Glowing Skin Made Simple

Simple and natural. If that describes your morning beauty routine, one of these top-rated tinted moisturizers with sunscreen just might be your new best friend. Each packs a tidge of color, light moisture and UV-blocking SPF protection—a 3-in-1 combo that can’t be beat.

As skin ages, sweet smile lines and fine creases are only enhanced by thick foundations and powders. And as with so many other facets of life, as the years go by, “lightening up” begins to sound—and look—pretty good!

The beauty of tinted moisturizers is that they enhance natural skin tone and glow without the caked-on look of concealing foundations. We love that the three SPF tinted moisturizers featured here come at the recommendation of the Environmental Working Group (see EWGs 2015 Guide to Suncreens)—each rated as a “low hazard” to your health, body and the environment.

3 Best Tinted Moisturizers with Sunscreen

Some women find that moisturizer/sunscreen combos have a slightly greasier feel than straight up foundation. But we think it’s safe to say that we all would take a bit of “greasy” and a green EWG rating over a chemical-laden SPF product. Here are three winners you may want to try.

Andalou Naturals Brightening All In One Beauty Balm

Environmental Working Group Rating: 1

The naturally sheer mineral tint in this moisturizer complements most light to medium skin tones. It boasts an SPF of 30 and sells for under $20. Though definitely not cloying the natural orange scent may be a little strong for those with super sensitive sniffers.

Final Tips

Ditch the foam wedges and fingertips. Use an EcoTools Flat Foundation Brush to apply and blend tinted moisturizers. It makes application and blending much easier. Clean brush at least once a week with a drop of liquid soap and allow to air dry.

Also note that tinted moisturizers often come in different tones so be sure to the order/select one that suits your skin color best.
