Every sunscreen I've tried looks like a greasy white mask.

Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are great broad-spectrum sunblocks, but they can look a little chalky—and the higher the SPF, the more likely you'll resemble a Marcel Marceau impersonator. There's no need to go above SPF 30, says Ciraldo, who also recommends choosing a tinted formulation (we like Murad Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 15 Sheer Tint). Or you can look for sunscreens that contain Parsol 1789 (often listed as avobenzone), which might feel a little greasier than the mineral blockers but won't have a whitish cast.
