During the summer, protecting our skin from sun damage is at the front of our minds. While a nice summer glow is nice, protecting your skin should be of top priority while you’re out and about during the heat of the summer. In the interest in finding the best sunscreens for our skin, we went straight to all-natural, mineral-based products. Unlike other sunscreens that can contain chemicals (that are absorbed into our skin and clog our pores), mineral-based sunscreens reflect the sun, making them healthier for our skin.
Here, we have compiled our favorite mineral-based sunscreens to keep your skin looking fresh and radiant while protecting it from harmful UV rays. Get out there and enjoy the beautiful weather by making a mineral sunscreen your new best summer friend!
We love bareMinerals and all their mineral-based products. When they introduced a mineral-based sunscreen we knew we had to get our hands on it. This sunscreen will give you an even glow while protecting your skin.
