UV rays actually induce aging at a faster rate causing sunspots, freckles, and more Because of this, regardless of your skin type It’s really crucial to always wear sunscreen Especially for acne prone skin If the skin is exposed to UV rays while in the process of healing The skin actually creates melanin to protect itself which can cause hyperpigmentation in the forms of sunspots, freckles, and more Because of this if you have acne prone skin it’s really important to always always be wearing sunscreen Round 2: Ingredients that those with acne prone skin should avoid and should use So, what are the sunscree ingredients those with acne prone skin should avoid? The first is Oxybenzone. Oxybenzone is used to chemically reduce the white cast That’s usually in sunscreen However, synthetic chemicals like oxybenzone actually absorb really well into the skin So it can actually create some internal hormonal issue The second ingredient you should avoid is Retinal Palmitate Retinal palmitate is a type of vitamin A that is made from a combination of retinol Which is pure vitamin A and palmitic acid Using retinol palmitate in the presence of UV rays can actually speed the formation of skin tumor and lesion In addition to these ingredients make sure to look out for ingredients such as Parabens and other substances such as petroleum So then what are the sunscreen ingredients we do recommend for acne prone skin? The first is Uvinul A Plus This is an ingredient with excellent photostability that helps prevent UV rays induced
discoloration of skincare product The second ingredient we recommend is Ethylhexyl triazone It has the ability to protect active oxygen while preventing oxidative damage So it promotes the synthesis of collagen to improve those wrinkles And also improve elasticity to reduce aging Round 3: important things to look out for when choosing a sunscreen for acne prone skin First thing to look out for is ingredients Acne prone skin is likely to be highly sensitive because of the high production of sebum So it can cause inflammation to settle easily Therefore rather than using a sunscreen with strong ingredient to reduce oilyness Try to choose a mild sunscreen that has ingredients with high photostability Such as Uvinul A Plus, and Ethylhexyl Triazone This gives you higher UV protection while also being gentle on the skin The second is to use a sunscreen with an adequate amount of SPF Use a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB UVA deteriorates collagen and other substances that maintains elasticity which can causes wrinkles, dark pigmentation, freckles, and even more UVB can cause sunburn and even skin cancer The higher the SPF index the stronger it is at protecting your skin against the uv rays And also reducing the number of UV rays that come into contact with your skin However if the SPF index is too strong it may contain too many chemicals So a SPF index of 30 to 50 is suitable for acne prone skin The third thing to look out for is texture Make sure that the one that you choose has a soft texture and applies gently on the skin A water-based product has a fresh and hydrating finish without oiliness or white cast So it’s great for before or after makeup Round 4: Things to look out for when using a sunscreen The most most important thing to look out for is cleansing Because most ingredients in UV protection products protect the skin against the UV rays By creating a barrier on the skin with a high oil level in the skin It’s really really important to choose a cleansing method with excellent cleansing power After cleansing with a cleansing oil use the foam cleanser as the second cleanser You should also apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you go out This is because in order to be well protected Sunscreen needs to create an effective shield on the skin which does take some time to from Carefully apply a finger lengths worth of sunscreen in two turns on the face It is recommended to apply an extra layer every three hours for a maximum UV protection But this can be difficult
