Non-Comedogenic Sunscreens for Clear, Protected and Grease-Free SkinApril 01, 2021
Considering how important it is to wear sunscreen every day all year long, finding a formula for your skin type is key. But if you have oily or acne-prone skin and every new product you introduce into your routine is a potential breakout risk, finding the perfect daily face sunscreen can feel like an impossible feat. To save you time, money and pimple cream, just look for the words “non-comedogenic” on the packaging.
Non-comedogenic products are formulated to not clog pores, meaning they’re free of ingredients that might otherwise cause breakouts and blackheads on the skin. Find five of our favorite non-comedogenic sunscreens, ahead.
