The Ideal Sunscreen For Acne-Afflicted Skin
By Marci Robin, Senior Online Editor |
We'd love to see a study regarding sunscreen use in acne sufferers. Something tells us that it's markedly lower than those who don't battle breakouts. Although they know sunscreen is important, there's an underlying fear that it will clog pores even more.
That concern is quelled with Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 15 from GoClear, a small but significantly effective line of acne-focused formulas. Like many sunscreens, it offers moderate broad-spectrum protection with several filtering ingredients. But it's the other components that make it so friendly for blemish-prone faces.
Avocado and other botanical extracts work to lessen excessive oil production, letting skin reach a healthy balance that bad bacteria won't want to call home. Green and white tea provide the polyphenols that are so helpful in the fight against aging free radicals, while vitamins C and E are released exactly when skin needs antioxidant protection the most. And because all skin types need hydration, angelica extract boosts hyaluronic acid synthesis.
Truly unique among daily sunscreens, this oil-free, irritant-free formula is a bonafide boon for those fighting acne.
