New Sunscreen (Spf) Page

8 posts in this topic

I finally compiled all of my research on all things sunscreen/SPF. It's actually quite an interesting and important topic when it comes to acne. People with acne-prone skin want to make sure they're using a good SPF option that doesn't clog pores, and applying it in a gentle way of course.

Check out the new Using Sunscreen (SPF) on Acne-Prone Skin page.

[by the way, how awesome are the graphics that Paul (Real Maverick) made for this page!?]

What happened to Acne.org's sunscreen moisturizer?


No regimen is one-size-fits-all. You are unique and so is your skin.

AM

Black soap - Lumiplexion Salicylic Acid ~ Lumiplexion SPF 30 ~ Lumiplexion moisturizer

PM

Black soap ~ Lumiplexion Glycolic Acid 12% (3-4x week) ~ Lumiplexion Hydroquinone 1-2x week

Lumiplexion enzyme mask / sulfur mask / moisturizing mask 1-2 week as needed

i wish we could do something about the oily/greasy feel.

also,in a tropical country,do u think spf 40+ is enough?

considering that spf 50/55+ will only give a lil' more protection while making it a lot oilier?
