Research suggests that overexposure to the sun is the number one cause of premature aging of the face. In order to slow down the development of fine lines, brown spots and pigmentation, wearing the right sunscreen is a must.
The challenge, of course, lies in finding the best sunscreen for your skin. Most sunscreens give a sticky feeling after application while some are just too thick which may clog your pores causing unwanted breakouts. No wonder some people find it troublesome to use and tends to skip this important step.
But don’t lose hope. Using a sunscreen can be something that you’ll actually love and enjoy wearing!
You just need to find the right one with these features: oil free, lightweight, provides broad-spectrum protection and contains safe mineral ingredients
Fortunately, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, a Harvard-trained aesthetic doctor in Singapore provides two best sunscreens for face. These oil free mineral sunscreens contain zinc oxide, one of the 16 FDA-approved active ingredient that reflects UV rays and does not irritate the skin. Zinc oxide sunscreens create a barrier on the skin, offering full protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Here are the two oil-free mineral sunscreens you’ll actually love to wear:
