going to beach

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am in my 5th month on accutane and I'm going to be going to the beach in a couple of days. I realize that my skin is going to be very sensitive to the sun so I need to slather on some sunscreen. Can someone reccomend a sunscreen that is not oily and wont clog my pores?

I am not sure where in the world you are based but the some of the best sunscreens come from France. I recently went on a 10 day trip to Johannesburg where it is very sunny and there's a high UV index. My skin was happy in the sun with La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunsceens - the factor 40 waterproof gel and the factor 50 formulations - typically I breakout with regular sunscreens even though they are effective at blocking out the sun's rays. However, this stuff works like a dream - however, I must add that I am only on 20 mg of Accutane!
