Sun Block For Acne Prone Skin

One of my favorites is Elta MD UV Clear Broad spectrum block, which is a facial sunblock that is good for sensitive skin and acne prone skin (and so often the two overlap). It is a non-comedogenic SPF 46 and blocks both UVA and UVB rays without parabens or added fragrance. Hyaluronic acid plumps fine lines and niacinamide builds the skin’s barrier and calms irritation from breakouts. Another benefit is that this sunblock won’t leave a white residue because of the “transparent zinc technology” the company uses – it is so light-weight my husband will use it, and it can be used alone or under makeup.

Another product I like because it is lightweight and calms down redness is Aveeno Ultra Calming, SPF 15. This facial moisturizer with sunscreen is non-comedogenic and contains feverfew (which is organically farmed according to Aveeno’s website), an herb which can help reduce redness.

Remember: apply sunblock or sunscreen at least 20-30 minutes before sun exposure.
