Why tinted sunscreen is a must-have for healthy and radiant skin

Sunscreen can be considered the most important step in your skincare routine because without it all your hard work to keep your skin healthy can go to waste. It protects against the harmful effects of UV rays, safeguarding our skin from premature ageing and sunburn. However, traditional sunscreens often come with their own set of challenges, especially for those with oily skin. Enter Spawake’s new tinted sunscreen, a sunscreen that offers additional benefits for your skin. In this blog post, we’ll explore its advantages, suitability for oily skin, and its role in achieving a radiant complexion throughout the summer months.

Understanding the importance of sunscreen

Before we delve into the specifics of tinted sunscreen, let’s revisit why sunscreen is a non-negotiable component of any skincare routine.
The sun emits harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, including UVA and UVB, which can penetrate the skin and cause damage at the cellular level. Over time, this damage manifests as premature ageing signs such as wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Applying sunscreen daily helps reduce these risks, making it a crucial line of defence against sun-induced skin damage.

The evolution of sunscreen

The history of sunscreen dates back centuries, with ancient civilizations using various natural substances to shield themselves from the sun’s rays.

Fast forward to the modern era, and we’ve witnessed remarkable advancements in sunscreen technology, catering to different skin types, concerns and lifestyles.

Spawake’s range of sunscreens is designed to cater to multiple needs. 

Spawake’s UV Cut Silky Milk Sunscreen with SPF 50+/PA++++ is ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time out in the sun.

Spawake’s UV Protect Aqua Gel with SPF 30/PA++ is a lightweight option for those who stay indoors often and for whom SPF 30/PA++ is an ideal amount of protection.
Spawake’s newest launch is a tinted sunscreen, which combines the protective benefits of sunscreen with the properties of makeup. Spawake’s UV Skin-Tone Radiant Gel protects your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays while giving your skin an instant glow and long-lasting radiance.

With years of research, we know how important sunscreen is, but people still hesitate to put sunscreen on due to a variety of factors, it feels heavy, leaves a white cast or for some, makes their skin very oily. But remember, for every problem, there is a solution. 

From oily to radiant

Individuals with oily skin often struggle to find sunscreen products that strike the right balance between sun protection and oil control. Traditional sunscreens can increase oily-shine and clog pores, leading to pimples and congestion.

Spawake’s tinted sunscreen offers a compelling solution to this dilemma.
Due to its gel formula, this tinted sunscreen helps regulate sebum production while delivering broad-spectrum sun protection. The tinted formulation also provides an instant glow and long-lasting radiance, while covering dark spots and uneven skin tone.

How to look for a natural gentle sunscreen?

In recent years, there has been a growing demand for natural and organic skincare products, driven by concerns about the potential health risks associated with certain chemical ingredients. Sunscreen is no exception to this trend, with many consumers seeking out natural alternatives for their sun protection needs.

Spawake’s range of sunscreens is made with natural ingredients such as kelp extract and sea minerals. Making them suitable for even the most delicate skin types. A natural sunscreen for the face also reduces the risks of side effects significantly. 

Incorporating tinted sunscreen into your summer skincare routine

As the temperatures rise and the sun’s rays become more intense, it’s essential to adjust your skincare routine accordingly. Your summer skincare arsenal should include lightweight, non-comedogenic products that offer adequate hydration without weighing down the skin. Tinted sunscreen fits the bill perfectly, offering sun protection, oil control, and a touch of coverage in a single step. To incorporate tinted sunscreen into your routine, start by cleansing your skin thoroughly, followed by a lightweight moisturiser. Then, apply a generous layer of tinted sunscreen to your face and neck, making sure to blend evenly for seamless coverage. Don’t forget to reapply every two hours, especially if you’re spending extended periods outdoors.

Sun protection beyond sunscreen

While sunscreen is undoubtedly a crucial aspect of sun protection, it’s not the only measure you should take to safeguard your skin from UV damage. Wearing protective clothing, such as wide-brimmed hats and UV-blocking sunglasses, can provide additional coverage for areas not protected by sunscreen. Seek shade whenever possible, especially during the peak sun hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. These simple yet effective measures can complement the protection provided by tinted sunscreen, ensuring comprehensive sun protection for your skin.

Choosing the right tinted sunscreen

With a plethora of tinted sunscreen options available on the market, choosing the right one can seem daunting. When selecting a tinted sunscreen, consider factors such as SPF level, tint shade, and skin compatibility. Opt for a broad-spectrum formula with an SPF of 30 or higher to ensure adequate protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Additionally, choose a tint shade that closely matches your skin tone for a natural-looking finish. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, look for non-comedogenic and fragrance-free formulations to minimise the risk of irritation or breakouts.

Expert tips for tinted sunscreen application

To make the most of your tinted sunscreen, follow these expert tips for flawless application:

– Start with a clean, moisturised face to ensure smooth application and long-lasting wear.

– Apply the tinted sunscreen liberally and evenly to all exposed areas, blending well for seamless coverage.

– Don’t forget to extend sunscreen application to often-overlooked areas such as the ears, lips, and hairline.

– Reapply tinted sunscreen every two hours, or more frequently if swimming or sweating heavily.

– For added sun protection, layer tinted sunscreen under makeup or use a powder sunscreen for touch-ups throughout the day.


In conclusion, tinted sunscreen is more than just a skincare product, it’s a versatile powerhouse that combines sun protection with skin-perfecting benefits. Whether you have oily skin, sensitive skin, or simply want to streamline your summer skincare routine, tinted sunscreen offers a solution that ticks all the boxes. By incorporating tinted sunscreen into your daily regimen, you can enjoy healthy, radiant skin all year round. So, embrace the sun safely and confidently with tinted sunscreen as your go-to companion for sun-kissed days ahead.
