Sunscreens for Acne

Why should I use sunscreen?

Irritated acne skin is sensitive to sun, and it is therefore very important to use sunscreen. When you choose your sunscreen, make sure that it does not contain oil, since this may clog your pores and worsen the acne. Some of the ingredients that are commonly found in products used for treating acne can also make you more susceptible to the sun, which emphasises the importance of using sunscreen. These ingredients include benzoyl peroxide and alpha hydroxy acids, which are active ingredients in many acne products.
