If you have acne-prone skin, you'll quickly realize that many sunscreens may feel overly thick and congested on your skin. Some can even irritate it and break you out further. We don't blame you if you're hesitant to use sunscreen in the first place. However, it's one of the most important parts of your skin-care routine, especially for maintaining skin health. Luckily, we found several sunscreens formulated specifically for those prone to breakouts and congested skin.
We found lightweight sunscreens in all-physical, chemical, and hybrid blends, including options from the drugstore. Some of these options are water resistant and leave no white cast, and we even found a few that are tinted to give you a "my skin but better" look. These picks are great for everyday use with elegant formulations that hydrate the skin without feeling sticky or overly greasy. If you prefer something oil-free or with a matte finish, we found a few of those options as well. Keep your skin protected every day, and shop our top sunscreen picks for acne-prone skin types ahead.
