1. Sunscreen for acne prone skin

Many acne sufferers resist using sunscreen because they’re worried about breakouts. This sunscreen is not only oil-free, it also contains oil-absorbers to help mattify any summer shine. Ingredients include zinc, caffeine and a yeast extract to soothe inflammation and regulate your skin’s oils – all while providing a barrier against the sun’s damaging rays. Tip: Make sure to exfoliate at the end of the day to remove all traces of sunscreen and apply a medicated treatment to combat acne.
