These 3 sunscreens are my absolute must haves! I mentioned before that I have struggled with awful acne for a few years and I have finally cleared it up. When I was dealing with breakouts the thought of putting sunscreen on made me cringe because I always associated putting sunscreen on my face, with getting more breakouts.
I also looove using Lactic acid, glycolic acid and retinol on my face every night and all three make your skin extremely sensitive to the sun, meaning that SPF is a must for me! Below are my favourite 3 facial sunscreens that aren't greasy, won't cause breakouts, and have no scent!
#1 ELTA MD CLEAR - SPF 46
An aesthetician that was doing my IPL Lasering for my acne scars told me that wearing sunscreen is the number one way to prevent aging and she recommended ELTA MD Sunscreen for my face. You can purchase it at almost any dermatologist clinic as well as some online retailers. I use the CLEAR version because it contains Niacinimide (which is also great from acne prone skin!). I have had no issues with greasiness, it soaks it right away, NO white cast. I wear it on top of my normal day moisturizer and then put my makeup on top and have never had any problems with my makeup getting messed up. I love it! It's my #1 skin care product.
#2 SuperGoop! Invincible Setting Powder -SPF 45
Throughout the day (especially when I am driving home from work) I like to reapply my sunscreen. If you want something that provides SPF but can be applied on top of your makeup, try this powder! It's super convenient to keep in your bag. It has the sunscreen in powder at the bottom and then there is an applicator brush. I love that I can reapply my sunscreen in 10 seconds flat by dusting this over my face. LOVE! It also provides a little coverage if you are going makeup-free.
#3 Supergoop! Setting Spray - SPF 50
My final sunscreen favourite is this genius setting spray with SPF 50 built into it. This is also a great option to have in your bag and reapply throughout the day. It mattifies your makeup and provides sun protection. I even spray it on my hands and shoulders when i'm in a rush and it feels super light and non-greasy.
