Our summer skincare routine dictates that hydration is as important as protection with SPF. My acne-prone sisters must be extra careful during summers to look out for products with non- comedogenic ingredients, which means they should not clog pores as they trigger breakouts. That said, many of us can’t realistically commit to all that layering – sunscreen, moisturiser, foundation, powder, setting spray, and so on. But, thanks to Instagram, naturally flawless skin is in, giving way to complexion products like tinted moisturizers with an array of hydration, SPF protection, textures, coverage, shade range, and non-comedogenic ingredients. A single multipurpose product seems like a great choice for those of us who require minimal coverage and tend to be out the door swiftly. So, here’s a list of tinted moisturizers which will pamper your skin with a natural, no- makeup makeup glow, ideal for the effortless approach.
