Avoid the White Cast of Sunscreen

Tips for choosing the right sunscreen…

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++

It’s easy to believe this sunscreen goes ‘unseen’ when you squeeze a dollop out of the tube. The formulation is made of a clear gel. The sunscreen disappears into your skin and then goes to work, protecting your face from UV rays and moisturizing at the same time. Available at Supergoop.

Kinship Self Reflect Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 32

Lightweight, sheer, moisturizing, reef-safe and reasonably priced, it’s no surprise Kinship’s Self Reflect Sunscreen is a fan favorite. Available at credobeauty.

EleVen by Venus Williams Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 35

For those looking to avoid all the yucky chemicals present in so many sunscreens, Venus Williams creates EleVen, a sunscreen safe for the planet. This lightweight serum combines skincare and sun protection, keeping your skin hydrated thanks to nature-made ingredients like prickly pear. Available at credobeauty.

Mineral Sunscreen

CoTZ Sensitive Non-Tinted Zinc Oxide Mineral Sunscreen for Body and Face Broad Spectrum SPF 40. Available at Ulta Beauty.

Reef-friendly and great for sensitive skin. This is one of the few mineral sunscreens that actually disappear when you rub it into your skin.

Best Sunscreen for Oily Skin

Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen with Niacinamide

Oily skin sweating in the summer sun: a wedding-day nightmare. Fenty’s Hydra Vizor Sunscreen doesn’t just go on invisible (no white cast!) Add to its beauty cred that it’s oil-free. Thus, you won’t add any extra dewy sheen for wedding photos. Available at Sephora

Best Sunscreen for Dry Skin

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral SPF 30 Moisturizer + Hyaluronic Acid

If you live with dry skin, this mineral sunscreen should do the trick. The product is ultra-hydrating thanks to hyaluronic acid, leaving your skin soft and soothed without the use of greasy oils. Plus, reviewers say it leaves almost no white cast, a rare case for mineral sunscreens. Available at La Roche-Posay

Best Sunscreen for Melanated Skin

Black Girl Sunscreen Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

Affordable and well-reviewed, users confirm that this sunscreen lacks the unfortunate white cast. So, this Black Girl Sunscreen is our top pick for melanated skin. Available at Ulta Beauty.

Best Sunscreen for Acne-prone Skin

EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 47

As a gal with acne-prone skin, this is my personal sunscreen recommended by my dermatologist. Not only does this mineral sunscreen act as the perfect sun protectant for sensitive skin, but its zinc formula means the cream goes on clear. No white cast and no pimples (fingers crossed). Don’t believe me? Read the 4300+ five-star reviews on Dermstore. Available at Dermstore

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30

The splurge of this list, this treatment by Dr. Jart+ does more than just protect your skin from the sun. The healing properties of tiger grass, or cica, in this cream helps to rapidly reduce redness, toning skin to look even and glowing on your wedding day. Available at Dr. Jart
