Breaking Beauty Podcast

Jun 10, 2020

In today’s episode, we’ll review the latest FDA findings around sun safety, along with our roundup of the best mineral sunscreen innovations shaking their “chalky” reputation of the past. Also known as physical sunscreens, SPFs that use mineral filters like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to filter out the sun’s UV rays used to resemble thick white paint when you put them on. Good news though: the 2.0 versions now come in silky textures, matte finishes and glowy serums (seriously, there’s something for everyone!)


From a formula for dry complexions you’d swear is a skincare lotion to a winner for oily skin that’s already selling out at Sephora to a groundbreaking luminous serum for all skin tones, get ready to get your summer on with this epic mineral sunscreen roundup. Plus, don’t miss our favourite formula for clean beauty lovers, and stay tuned until the end to find out which drugstore SPF was good enough to make the final cut (it’s not the brand you think!). 


As we mentioned off the top of the show, we want to support any Black Creators interested in starting your own podcast. We can share the skills that we’ve learned over the past 3.5 years of creating Breaking Beauty:  everything from best practices on technical set up to remote recordings, scripts, production process, how to monetize and more. So if you’ve been thinking about starting a podcast, or have an existing show, just drop a note on email at: We look forward to hearing from you.
