The 7 Best Mineral Sunscreens

My Top 7 Mineral Sunscreen Picks

The best way to prevent wrinkles is to wear sunscreen on the daily (even when it’s cloudy) and reapply throughout the day. Even if you work indoors, you still get exposure through windows and blue light so lathering up on mineral sunscreen is the sure way to protect your skin. There are a lot of SPFs out there and they are mostly good, but why settle when you can use the best mineral sunscreen. Here are the 7 best mineral sunscreens!

Best Overall

Supergoop Matte Screen SPF 40 This is a 100% mineral sunscreen that helps leave skin looking mattified and poreless. It works great under makeup and offers enough tint if you want to skip makeup. Supergoop knows SPF – this formula smooths your skin’s appearance and minimizes the look of pores, all with broad spectrum SPF 40. This is the SPF I wear every day.

Best Drugstore 

Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50

It offers broad-spectrum SPF 50 protection against UVA and UVB rays thanks to 100% zinc oxide. It’s fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, and $10!

Best Splurge 

EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46

This formula is lightweight and silky, and the universally flattering tint blends to match your skin tone. It also calms and protects sensitive skin types prone to discoloration and breakouts from the sun’s harmful rays.

Best Body 

BeautyCounter CounterSun SPF 30

Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and California Poppy, this physical SPF 30 formulation provides an effective shield from UVA and UVB and is easy to get widespread coverage. It sprays on white to help guide application, blends in easily, and dries quickly without an oily residue.

Best Tinted

Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation

This is a clean, tinted serum that provides light, dewy coverage with mineral SPF 40 and active ingredients that nourish the skin. The coverage is light, natural and provides a beautiful dewy finish all day. This is what I wear on the daily and I love it!

Best Reapplication

Pacifica Set & Protect SPF 45

This is lightweight and sheer, locks in your makeup, protects your skin and helps control oil or a makeup meltdown. It works great as the last step in your makeup routine but I love to use for reapplication throughout the day for SPF and blue light protection. Yes, you need to reapply sunblock every couple of hours for maximum protection so if you wear makeup, this is the easiest way to protect your skin (and makeup!)

Best Family

Think Baby SPF 50

Think Baby is the gold standard for clean sunscreen. It offers high broad spectrum protection, doesn’t feel sticky on the skinand contains aloe, hyaluronic acid, and jojoba oi. It does leave a bit of white cast but it’s well worth the amazing protection.

Two Finger Application Method

I’ve mentioned this on my Instagram but you should be utilizing the “two finger” method when applying your sunscreen. That means two strips of sunscreen should be squeezed from the tip to the base of the index and middle fingers and applied to your face and neck – every single day!
