People that wear a sunscreen with SPF of 15 or higher daily show 24 percent less skin aging, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. But if having a glowing summer tan is important to you, worry not—you don't have to compromise. Tinted sunscreen combines you color and sun protection into one do-it-all product, so you can safeguard your skin and look like you’ve spent hours at the pool.

If you're ready to embrace this SPF trend, check out these top tinted sunscreen products that give you a beautiful (and natural) bronzed look while sheltering skin from the harmful effects of the sun.

Best Tinted Sunscreen Mist: Countersun Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Mist

Physical (mineral) sunscreens are known for being gentle on sensitive skin, but they're also known to leave behind chalky residue. This tinted version of Beautycounter’s best-selling sunscreen mist provides water-resistant, reef-friendly protection, and it's easy to blend into skin. It's available in two colors: Light-Medium and Medium-Deep.

We love a great multitasking product, don't you? Get your matte primer and sunscreen fix in one with a non-irritating vegan formula. Even more exciting: it’ll help prevent signs of aging and moisturize your face as you wear it.
