best sunscreen for oily skin
What Is Oily Skin?
Oily skin is characterised by a constant shine or greasy layer on your skin, enlarged pores and acne or breakouts around the oilier areas and the fact that your makeup just won’t stay put. This is further exacerbated in the summer and monsoon months when the excess sweat makes your skin oilier still. Oily skin needs to be handled with care and products that are specifically suited to oily skin types, so as not to further increase the sebum produced or worsen any skin concerns like clogged pores or breakouts.
But if you think that oily skin doesn’t need moisturizer or *shudder* sunscreen, think again. Sunscreen is the one holy grail skin care product you need all year round, whether indoors or outdoors. And it’s equally important to choose a sunscreen for oily skin to ensure your skin is at its healthiest best.
Sunscreen for Oily Skin
Dermalogica has a wide range of sunscreens of different SPF levels and to suit different skin types. Here are the best sunscreens for oily skin, for both men and women:
This broad spectrum sunscreen helps prevent shine and skin ageing on oily, breakout-prone skin. Its lightweight, ultra-sheer formula contains an advanced blend of Zinc Gluconate, Caffeine, Niacinamide, Biotin and Yeast Extract and the oil absorbers help maintain an all-day matte finish, preventing shine without any powdery residue. The sunscreen’s sheer formula provides defence against skin-ageing UV light.
This lightly-tinted hydrating treatment provides an all-day sheer wash of color. Natural, light-diffusing Iron Oxides provide translucent color for radiant skin, while the element of the broad spectrum sunscreen shields against damaging UV rays. Hydrolyzed Pearl amino acids, hydrating cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant Walnut Seed extracts help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine dehydration lines. This has been formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.
Oily skin can cause havoc with breakouts, acne and sensitization, if not cared for properly. This broad spectrum sunscreen is ideal for sensitized, reactive and recently resurfaced skin, also when caused by oily skin concerns. Natural mineral sunscreens help shield against photodamage and UV exposure. It contains our exclusive UltraCalmingTM Complex with Oat and botanical actives, which help minimize discomfort, burning and itching. The sheer formula provides optimal hydration and helps protect and reinforce barrier lipids, which are often compromised in sensitized skin conditions. This sunscreen is formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.
Invisible, weightless defense that blends easily on skin, featuring only non-nano Zinc Oxide. Say goodbye to thick, white residue with this physical SPF formula that provides added blue light protection and helps soothe away the effects of environmental aggressors.
