Leave the Suntan Lotions at Home, Try Mineral Powder SPF Instead


As you pack up your bag for the beach for this weekend, don’t forget to protect your skin with SPF. Not into the thick, goopy, pore-clogging (even when labeled oil-free) creams, lotions, and sprays? No longer does that mean subjecting your face to the sun’s harmful rays. Rather, simply brush on some of Peter Thomas Roth’s new mineral powder sunscreens for all the necessary sun protection, without the risk of messy spills, shiny skin, or breakouts.

With a translucent, matte, finish, these talc-free and residue-free mineral powders can be applied over moisturizers or makeup and come in three new varieties so you can find one perfect for your skin type. Choose Oily Problem Skin Instant Mineral SPF 30 for an oil-absorbing formula designed for skin prone to breakouts, pick Un-Wrinkle Instant Mineral SPF 30 for anti-aging benefits, or stick to Instant Mineral SPF 45 if you have normal skin. Regardless of which you choose, all are packaged in an easy-to-use, retractable brush that fits conveniently in your pocket or makeup case for easy re-application.

The sun goddess in you will be thankful for the coat of armor.
