Protection Without the Pimples: The Sunscreen Acne-Prone Skin Needs
If you have acne-prone skin—you know, the kind of complexion that pimples pop up on for seemingly no reason at all—the idea of sunscreen can be a little scary. Sure, you need the protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but that greasy residue many sunscreens often leave behind can turn into a nightmare of blemishes and breakouts. Well, if you’ve been rolling your eyes every time someone tells you to layer on the SPF, roll no more. Get protection without the pimples by using a sunscreen that’s designed for acne-prone skin.
In the past, sunscreen has gotten a bad rap for being too greasy and too heavy. If you have acne-prone or oily skin, these formulas often lead to excess oil and breakouts. Thankfully, with the increasing amount of research and information on just how important it is to make sunscreen a part of our daily lives and routines—sunscreen doesn’t have to be what it once was. In fact, there are plenty of sunscreens out there that can protect the skin, sans the grease. Case in point: Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector 100% Mineral Sunscreen in SPF 50.
Formulated with problematic skin in mind, the 100 percent Mineral Sunscreen from Kiehl’s Sun Protector line is ideal for acne-prone skin, thanks to its oil-free and non-pore clogging formula. Water resistant for up to 80 minutes and made for both the face and the body, you can rock this block under your makeup, at the beach, on the court, or in the pool. And, since it’s non-comedogenic and oil-free, reapplying—and reapplying again and again—won’t turn your skin into a greasy, acne-prone mess.
In addition, this lightweight, broad spectrum SPF 50 lotion can do more than protect the skin from falling victim to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Formulated with antioxidant vitamin E, the Mineral Sunscreen helps to neutralize environmental aggressors like free radicals, while working to target early signs of aging—like, fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin, to name a few.
