We’re all about a two-for-one here. If we’re making an effort to put on makeup, it would be great if the ingredients would also do something a bit magical for our skin. Tinted moisturizers with vitamin C are a great way to make that happen. Not only do they cover up any imperfections while letting your skin breathe, but they also can help reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, brightening your face throughout the day. Of course, that’s not all these babies do.
If we’re all about a two-for-one, well, many of these do even more than cover and brighten. With broad-spectrum SPF, they also help protect skin from UVA/UVB rays. (Though, you should probably reapply. Try a powder sunscreen!) Many of these also contain other skin-calming ingredients including black currant and peony-root extract. It’s like foundation and skincare in one. You can’t go wrong.
Shop some of our favorite tinted moisturizers and find the right shade and formula for your unique skin. Because the coverage is sheer-to-medium, you have more flexibility with finding your exact shade match.
