NON-COMEDOGENIC & ACNE-SAFE MINERAL SUNSCREENS
Marie Veronique Everyday Coverage Tinted Sunscreen SPF30 – this is my current favorite! It is perfect for oily acne-prone skin because it is so lightweight, yet offers a light coverage and mattifies really well. Perfect for under the foundation and everyday use. Green tea extract helps to prevent the sebum oxidation, and hence clogging of your pores! Rated #1 in EWG’s 2014, 2015 & 2016 Sunscreen Guide.
Badger Damascus Rose SPF 25 Sheer Tint Face Sunscreen Lotion – Badger sunscreens are truly great natural sunscreens. However, some may be formulated with comedogenic ingredients like beeswax, but not this one. It is certified non-nano & non-comedogenic, formulated with aloe vera and sunflower oil (great for acne-prone skin), it also offers a broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It does leave a bit of a residue, but it definitely does its job well if you are a lot in the sun.
Suntegrity – “5 in 1” Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen – Tinted -This sunscreen is, hands down, one of the best around. It effectively hydrates, nourishes and protects the skin with antioxidants, provides light coverage, and offers UV damage protection. It gives a natural-looking coverage with a light, non-greasy feel. Plus, it also has acne-fighting green tea extract!
MyChelle Dermaceuticals Sun Shield Unscented SPF 28 – This is an unscented, mineral-based sunscreen with Aloe and Vitamin E to soothe and protect. The formula is lightweight and absorbs quickly. Definitely a good mineral sunscreen that won’t clog your pores, especially in this price range.
