Best Mineral-Based Sunscreen
Sunscreens that use minerals like zinc oxide or titanium oxide are generally recognized as safe and effective. They’re good for sensitive skin that might have a bad reaction to chemical sunscreens. The best mineral-based sunscreen provides broad-spectrum coverage, blocking both UVA and UVB rays. Many mineral-based sunscreens are water resistant and go on without a greasy or oily feel. In fact, if your skin is oily, you’ll find mineral sunblock that’s formulated for oily skin.
Unlike chemical sunscreens that allow the sun’s rays to penetrate your skin and only react once the light has been absorbed, mineral sunblock creates a physical barrier that the sun’s rays can’t penetrate. People with sensitive skin, allergies, or skin conditions, such as rosacea, may do better with one of the best mineral-based sunscreens.
