5 Powder Sunscreens That You Need To Try

Jyotika Udeshi , 19 Jun 2020

How many times have you skipped reapplying your sunscreen just so that you don’t mess up your makeup? Although I hate to admit it, I too am guilty of doing this. Many liquid and cream formulas smear my foundation and often, leave a white cast on my skin. Luckily, I’ve discovered a foolproof way to reapply sunscreen… via powder formulas! These innovative sunscreens make it easy to touch-up your sun protection throughout the day, without disturbing the makeup beneath. If you are keen to try them out, here are 5 that are worth the investment!

1. Paula’s Choice On-The-Go Shielding Powder SPF 30

If you have combination or oily skin, you should definitely consider picking up this product. Not only does the loose powder protect your skin from the harsh effects of UV rays, but also mattifies any shine. Plus, it contains vitamin C & E, which help strengthen your skin’s barrier whilst dealing with hyperpigmentation.
