When you have temperamental skin, finding a sunscreen that won’t cause your skin to break out is often a challenge. But you really can’t ditch sun protection, can you? Here are three things to look out for when choosing a sunscreen that won’t irritate your skin.

Firstly, you should look for a sunscreen product that’s non-oily and noncomedogenic. What this means is that the product has no ingredients that are known to cause pore blockages and breakouts. While there is never a guarantee that a sunscreen won’t cause your skin to break out, it does mean it’s less likely to, making it a better option. 

Secondly, you should avoid using a sunscreen that is specifically for your body, on your face. Apart from being too thick, these sunscreens can be heavy and greasy, making them more likely to contribute to breakouts.

And lastly, you want to stay away from sunscreens that contain oxybenzone and Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA), as these products are chemical based, and more likely to irritate your skin. You should opt for a mineral based and non-oily product, like EezySun. Our non-oily formula removes the risk of skin and eye irritation making it safe for even the most sensitive of skin types. EezySun comes in easy to use sunscreen snap sachets that make application hassle and contamination-free. They are available for purchase at leading Clicks and Spar stores.

If you’re using acne treatment, remember that you can apply sunscreen too.
