With the right skincare products, it doesn’t take much to step up your game. And a tinted moisturizer might be just what you’ve been missing out on.
What’s a tinted moisturizer?
A tinted moisturizer is a face cream with a bit of color that can cancel fatigue and really invigorate your complexion. The best tinted moisturizers do double (even triple!) duty by combining the healthy skin benefits of a well-formulated daily moisturizer with anti-aging sunscreen and a touch of complexion revitalizing color.
Are tinted moisturizers makeup?
Not really. Think of a tinted moisturizer as skincare with the revitalizing benefits of a makeup foundation. Even though tinted moisturizers add some color to a dull, fatigued complexion, they’re not the same as makeup and are far lighter than most makeup foundations. The best tinted moisturizers for men blend in and are invisible on the skin.
What is a tinted moisturizer used for?
When your daily grooming regimen includes a tinted moisturizer, you’re covering all bases with one easy-to-use product. It combines the benefits of your daily face cream and your sunscreen product in one. But its greatest benefit for the busy professional and every guy on the go, is its ability to nix signs of fatigue on the spot – with no trace of makeup. Again, a tinted moisturizer isn’t quite makeup and the right one will look natural enough to give you a healthy, natural vibrancy that looks like you got the best night’s sleep of the week.
