Hey! I'm going skiing and know I have to wear sunscreen. I was hoping to apply some makeup over it as we'll be going straight to apres ski bars after the slopes so i won't be able to change. In general, does anyone have any reccomendations for sun screens or sun blocks that won't make my face break out? The last time I went on a sun holiday I found the Clarins Sun Cream I used really didn't help prevent acne.

Well, this won't work to prevent acne, but this most likely will not contribute to any break outs. I LOVE Olay Complete All Day UV Defense Moisture Lotion, it has SPF 15. I don't know if that SPF is enough for you though. I use this just as an everyday sunblock on top of my makeup which already has an SPF. But it's great for acne prone skin.

Regimen



Morning

- Cleanse with Neutrogena Acne-Stress Control Power Clear Scrub
- Moisturize with Neutrogena Acne-Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment
- Sometimes (depends on if skin is too dry) Nature's Cure for Females BP 5%
- Makeup: Primer: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel Concealer: Covergirl, Foundation: 2-3 layers of Physicians Formula Mineral Wear in Natural Beige

During the Day

- Blot face with toilet seat cover (No, it's not gross!)

Evening

- Remove eye makeup with Maybelline Make-up Remover for Waterproof makeup
- Cleanse with Neutrogena Acne-Stress Control Power Clear Scrub
- Moisturize with Neutrogena Acne-Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment
- Nature's Cure for Females BP 5%
- 2 pills of Nature's Cure for Females.


Once or Twice a Week
- Aspirin mask (with honey)
- or Queen Helene's Mint Julep Mask

If you are looking for a higher SPF, all of these got the highest rating on Paula Begoun's website in the category of 30+ SPF that are good for oily skin:

Neutrogena Active Breathable Sunblock SPF 30
Neutrogena Age Shield Sunblock SPF 30
Neutrogena Age Shield Sunblock SPF 45
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 30
Coppertone Ultra Sheer Faces Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

I personally have used the Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock and liked it.
Morning:
Clean & Clear Foaming Facial Cleanser Sensitive Skin
3% BP Pads

Night:
Dove Cool Moisture Cleansing Cloths
PC 2% BHA Liquid

Makeup: EM Foundation in Intensive Olive Fair/Sandy Fair

思念西湖边 杨柳飞雪堆烟

修炼一千年 一万年也无怨
心若不安 痛能看见
泪淹没视线 化火焰烧红天
剪不断 理还乱前缘
