9 Mineral Sunscreens

Branded: Mineral Sunscreen
Did you know: Mineral sunscreens are the best thing you can do for your face this summer.
You already know that you should be slathering on SPF each morning, but mineral sunscreen is a game-changer.

Unlike chemical sunscreen, which absorbs into your skin, the natural formula sits on top of your skin (a.k.a doesn't get into your bloodstream). This forms a barrier that blocks both UVA rays (which cause wrinkles and skin cancer) as well as UVB rays (which gives you a sunburn). Sounds good, right? 
In addition to just being a safer choice, it's an ideal option for anyone with sensitive skin. Bonus: Because it's natural (and non-absorbing), most formulas won't cause acne or irritate skin. Just be sure to look for one that says mineral (meaning it contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide or a combo of the two) on the bottle.
But with so many options to choose from, where do you even start?
I got you. Keep scrolling to shop the best ones on the market.
