Sunscreen is the single most important thing for your skin, which is why using tinted moisturisers loaded with SPF is ideal for summer.

 It seriously can’t be stressed enough just how essential daily SPF is because it acts as a protector against the sun, and fights premature aging.

Sunscreen should be the last step in your skincare routine. If you apply other products over the top, it can dimmish sunscreen’s power and effective UV protection.

Sunscreen is often skipped as it is yet another step in any skincare routine.

This is where tinted sunscreen can save the day.

Brands have started making specific formulas that combine sunscreen with tinted moisturiser or BB creams, essentially cutting out an extra step (making sunscreen more convenient). 

But it can be hard to find a tinted moisturiser that ticks all the boxes: no white cast? Affordable? High SPF count? Light weight? Full coverage?

Here are 9 of the top tinted sunscreens that your skin will love this summer, and an insider tip is to always shake the product well before using so the ingredients are well mixed and coverage is consistent.
