Indoors or outdoors, wearing sunscreen daily is extremely important to protect your skin from harmful UV rays that can cause sunburn, pigmentation, redness, and more skin problems.

But what type of sunscreen should you use? Are all the sunscreens available in the market equally safe for your skin? Well, the answer is no. Many skin care experts and dermatologists recommend using mineral sunscreens over chemical ones.

In this blog, we will tell you all you need to know about mineral sunscreens and suggest the best mineral sunscreens for all skin types.

What is a Mineral Sunscreen?

Chemical sunscreens use chemicals to filter harmful UV rays. On the other hand, mineral sunscreens contain minerals like zinc oxide that protect your skin by forming a physical barrier against UV rays, which is why they are also called physical sunscreens.

Benefits of Mineral Sunscreen over Chemical Sunscreen

Here are a few benefits of mineral sunscreen that make it a better and safer choice than chemical sunscreen:

  • Deflects UV rays
    While chemical sunscreens offer protection against sun damage by absorbing sun rays, sunscreens with mineral formulas form a physical shield on your skin that deflects harmful UV rays away from your skin and protects it against sun damage.
  • Less risk of skin irritations
    One of the most significant benefits of mineral sunscreen is that it is safer for sensitive skin. Most physical sunscreens are gentle on the skin and contain zinc oxide that helps protect the skin against minor irritations. 
  • Environment-friendly
    The ingredients used in chemical sunscreens can be harmful to marine animals and pose a risk to their lives.

Summing up!

Summer, winter, autumn, or fall, sunscreen is one of the most important parts of a skin care routine. SPF not only protects your skin from several skin problems and premature ageing but also reduces the risk of skin cancer. And when it comes to SPF, there is nothing better than choosing mineral sunscreens suitable for your skin type.
