If you’re a skincare nerd, you know the importance of sunscreen. It is the number one anti-aging product out there that can reduce future wrinkles, sagging, and skin pigmentation, and it is a non-negotiable member of my morning skincare lineup.
As someone with rosacea, I frequently look for sunscreens with zinc because zinc has been shown to reduce the redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. Zinc soaps have antibacterial and antifungal benefits that can be helpful in treating the bumps and pimples of rosacea as well. Zinc in sunscreens is one of those ingredients that tends to show up with a white cast on the skin, which is actually something I prefer because the white cast helps to even my complexion. For me, zinc sunscreens promise a one-two punch of rosacea treatment along with effective, long lasting sun protection.
