What's the best sun cream for acne-prone skin?

  • Choose a sunscreen formula for your skin type to avoid blocked pores and increased shine.
  • Consider La Roche Posay’s Anthelios Invisible Face Mist with SPF 50 for touch ups that won’t ruin your makeup.
  • Remember: UVA rays are present even on cloudy days, SPF should be used daily.

The sun can cause skin to sweat, which increases the risks of breakouts for acne-prone skin. Because you want to look your best under the sun, opt for non-greasy suncare protection that doesn't exacerbate the problem.

Hello sunshine, bye-bye acne...

There is a multitude of suncare products on the market, so how do you know which are best for your acne-prone skin?

Because cream-based sunscreen can sometimes clog pores - an invitation for acne breakouts - focus your search on ones labelled as "non-comedogenic" (formulated so as not to block pores). La Roche-Posay's Anthelios collection offers non-comedogenic face and body suncare sprays for sensitive skin in both SPF 30 and SPF 50, depending on your skin tone and sun sensitivity levels. You can also try the Anthelios Invisible Mist which is ultra-light and quickly absorbed.

Let the sun shine, not your face

Many acne sufferers will be familiar with the T-zone shine that comes when the sun shines. Say no to the sheen, and yes to a radiant glow, with the Anthelios Anti-Shine Tinted SPF50. High protection with a non-greasy texture and a hint of colour are ideal for skin that tends to go shiny in the sun. It also comes in a non-tinted version with a delicate fragrance.

Because it's not just on holiday that your skin needs protection from the sun, Anthelios Anti-Shine Gel SPF50+ has been formulated to ensure regular protection for everyday as a lightweight mattifying fluid specifically formulated for oily, blemish-prone skin.

Enjoy the sun, avoid over-exposure, and leave your acne at the airport!
