Tip of the Day: Tinted Sunscreen

June 14, 2010

There is no excuse for wearing foundation and bronzer to the pool. I do not care if you’re having skin issues. I do not care if you are one of those people who won’t leave their room without a full face of makeup. I do not even care if you are suffering from Michael Jackson syndrome and your mug looks like a McDonald’s twist cone. I just do not care.

Why don’t I care? Well, the reasons are two-fold. One: I’m not really cool with swimming through a brownish film of Sephora’s finest. I don’t really “swim,” but if I did, that would be gross.

Oh my God that water is brown!

Two: You should be using tinted sunscreen anyway. Using a waterproof tinted sunblock allows you to block harmful rays while still looking your best. Even if your foundation of choice is noncomedogenic, wearing makeup in the sun is never a good thing. Plus, unless you come equipped with your own personal cooling system, you’re going to sweat it off in .5 seconds. So next time you’re pool-bound, try one of these top rated tinted sunscreens, and save the heavy foundation for a more appropriate time…like your 40’s…
