How To Protect Your Skin From The Sun When You Are Acne Prone?

acne-prone-sunscreen-267x300When your skin is oily and acne prone it can be very challenging to find the right solution and keep your skin safe from the sun without getting more breakouts.

Most acne sufferers skip the use of sun protection because:

1., The fear of getting more unwanted break outs from putting on a oily, creamy lotion to protect their skin.

2,. They believe that the sun will dry up their acne and the tan will cover the unwanted blemishes.

I’m here to tell you that wearing sun protection everyday is probably the single most important thing you can do for your skin. It will protect you from skin cancer, reduce the amount of scarring and will keep your skin looking young. Remember, you need to use it every day!

So how do you choose the right Sunscreen?

It might take a little research on your end but the right sunscreen is out there. You have to make sure that you’re using a noncomedogenic  formula that will protect against both UVA and UVB rays.  These types are free of comedogenic ingredients and won’t break you out.

5 Tips On How To Protect Your Skin From Incidental Sun Exposure

If you need help finding a good sunscreen that you can trust, and it’s safe to use on acne prone skin I can highly recommend the PoreInfusion Clear Shield SPF 50. It is a light weight, daily moisturizing sunscreen that will provide broad spectrum SPF50 protection for your skin while also nourishes and hydrates your skin.

Choosing your sunscreen wisely will ensure you are adequately protected.

Does the sun heal my acne?

One of the biggest myths out there is that laying in the sun can cure your acne.

Here is the reason why:

Although sun exposure causes desirable scaling and drying of the skin, it also damages the follicle, worsens hyper pigmentation, causes premature aging and one of the number one causes of skin cancer.

So do yourself a favor and stay away from the sun!

Instead of hoping a tan will clear up your skin, try a proven acne treatment. You’ll get far better results without the risks associated with sun exposure.
