Why Does Sunscreen Make Me Break Out?

May 11, 2018

Sunscreen is essential to protect your skin against harmful UV rays. Even if you use the best face serums, you still need an effective sunscreen, especially if you are prone to acne. Certain types of sunscreen can make these individuals break out more aggressively. Ultimately, it depends on the specific sunscreen you are using, so if you often break out after frequently applying sunscreen, then you should consider using something else.

What to Look for in a New Sunscreen

When shopping for new sunscreen, you should focus on ones that are advertised as “non-comedogenic.” Many consumers opt for products that have the phrase “oil-free.” While it can be beneficial to cut back on oils, certain ingredients can still clog your pores. A sunscreen that is non-comedogenic does not contain lanolin.

Use Argan Oil to Aid in Skin Protection 

In addition to using a high-quality sunscreen, you should also consider using argan oil for UV protection. This product is rich in vitamin E, which is a helpful substance for blocking ultraviolet rays.

This leads many consumers to wonder, “Does argan oil have natural SPF?” Argan oil does not contain natural SPF. It provides many benefits to the skin and can help you attain a more youthful aesthetic, but it will not block UV rays. You still need sunscreen even if you use argan oil on a regular basis.

Best Ingredients for Acne-Prone Skin

If you struggle with acne, then you should look for physical sunscreens containing zinc titanium. These ingredients tend to have a drying effect on the skin to prevent breakouts. For people who wear makeup, they can prevent breakouts and sunburn by applying a powder-based sunscreen over your foundation.

Timeless Skin Care has a variety of products to incorporate into your skincare routine to prevent UV damage and breakouts. You can utilize a moisturizing face spray, and we even have argan oil for sale to nourish skin cells.
