We know that sunscreen is an essential part of any beauty routine, but that doesn’t stop us from complaining about it. As much as we’re aware of sunscreen’s UVA and UVB protection and how it helps prevent premature aging, it doesn’t make thick, greasy formulas that cause breakouts any more enjoyable to apply. Good news: It’s 2018 and there are plenty of next-gen sunscreens for oily skin and acne-prone skin that also happen to be a pleasure to wear.
Sunscreen may not be as thrilling to shop for as a new lipstick or an eyeshadow palette but take the time to browse and see there are a surprising number of formulas to suit your needs and skin type. The last thing those with oily or acne-prone skin want is a formula that makes shiny skin feel greasier, which is why there are dermatologist-tested, noncomedogenic and mattifying formulas that won’t clog pores. And they won’t leave skin with that telltale whitish finish, so there’s no excuse not to wear sunscreen on the daily.
Stop settling for an OK formula and get an SPF product you genuinely want to apply (and reapply) with these best sunscreens for oily skin and acne-prone skin.
