Good Foundation With Sunscreen

Hi all,

I posted this over in Cosmetics and Style, but also figured I'd post here as well.

Haven't posted in ages (mostly lurk), but I'm still fighting the good fight. That is, a reemergence of my acne a few years back after 15 years beautifully clear, thanks to a round of Accutane at age 25. But once I went off the pill at 40, hormonal cystic chin acne reared its ugly head, along with some scarring (!!), so back to the doc for me. Only now, throw aging skin into the mix and things are REALLY interesting!

At any rate, my regimen includes Benzaclin in the a.m., a low dose Oracea pill 1X daily, and Tazorac at night. Problem is, the use of Benzaclin in the a.m. makes it difficult to then pair on top of that a sunscreen (SPF 20 at minimum is a MUST) and then foundation. One or the other of the ingredients starts rubbing off in white flakes once I get to the foundation, regardless of how gently I pat it on.

So I'm thinking the solution may be to find a foundation that contains sunscreen. But I have no idea where to start. What are some of your favorites? I'm looking for medium coverage that isn't too matt. And of course, nothing that will break me out or make me an oily mess!
