Look for non-comedogenic products in Sunscreens. Keeping in mind that comedogenic materials in mineral sunscreen can also cause breakouts. Here are my picks for the best sunscreens and those with acne-prone skin.
Mineral sunscreens may sit on top of your skin and clog your pores, while chemical sunscreens can irritate your skin. Apply Sunscreen and wait for pimples to appear, or forego it and risk melanoma and wrinkles. On that one, the option is pretty obvious.
Butyloctyl Salicylate (sunscreen ingredients) can help to increase the SPF rating of sunscreens by solubilising certain widely used UV-filters such as Oxybenzone or Avobenzone. It’s also very light and cosmetically.
Rodan and Fields Sunscreens With Butyloctyl Salicylate
Many of Rodan and Fields’ mineral sunscreens contain Butyloctyl Salicylate.
To tested all of them, I put them to the test on my skin to see if it’s worth their hefty price tags. Then, I swatched several to see which one contains the least amount of the ingredient. I also tested products that contained the ingredient and recommended you stick with it unless you really want to find out how your skin reacts.
