6 Acne-Friendly Sunscreens to Pack For Your Holiday Vacation

Dec 29 2014 - 3:05pm

As beauty editors, we hear a lot of complaints, but the number one grievance among our friends (and colleagues) is sunscreen. Dermatologists may say it's the best antiaging product out there, but it can be a pain to find the right one. Some formulas leave you looking ashen, while others are so greasy that breakouts are inevitable. That's why we've compiled a list of our favorite noncomedogenic, oil-free, and mattifying formulas for women who are acne prone. These are also great picks if you don't have room to add a weighty cream to your skin care and makeup regimen. Now applying sunscreen every day will be a nonissue, right?

MD Solar Sciences Mineral Tinted Creme

If you've already got a breakout on the horizon, mix this MD Solar Sciences Mineral Tinted Creme SPF 30 [2] ($32) with your foundation or moisturizer to conceal any red spots.

Peter Thomas Roth Sunscreen Stick

Not only is this Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Defense Sunscreen Stick SPF 50 [3] ($26) easy to apply, but it's also fragrance free. That's one less thing you have to worry about irritating your skin.

Hampton Sun For Baby

If it's good enough for a baby's bottom, it's perfect for sensitive skin. The Hampton Sun For Baby SPF 45 [4] ($28) is chemical-free and hypoallergenic.

L'Oréal Paris Silky Sheer Face Lotion

Midday oil-slick your main issue? The L'Oréal Paris Silky Sheer Face Lotion SPF 50 [5] ($11) has a powdery finish that works well under makeup or alone. Oh, and did we mention it's oil free?

Paula's Choice Non-Greasy Sunscreen

Paula's Choice Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 50 [6] ($14, originally $16) is formulated without titanium dioxide, which could cause a breakout if your skin is adverse to mineral sunscreens and makeup.

Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum

The word serum is synonymous with light and smooth, so this Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 [7] ($42) is translucent enough to layer with your other skin care products. We love it so much, we featured it in our July 2013 POPSUGAR Must Have box [8].
