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!?]

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?

The difference between SPF 40 and 50 is apparently slim. I'm going to Greece in July and plan on using SPF 30.
