What are suitable sunscreens for the face when using acne medication?

Recommended Posts

What sunscreen do you use / would you recommend to someone using a prescribed acne treatment?

(I Am using Differin Gel 0.1% to treat mild to moderate hormonal acne)

On my search I keep coming back to Biore UV Bright Perfect Face Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ , as it is supposedly matte and great as a makeup base, but I fear trying something new in case it makes my skin worse.

Its ingredients: 

Cyclopentasiloxane, Water (Aqua), Alcohol, Zinc Oxide, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Lauryl Methacrylate/Sodium Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Titanium Dioxide, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Talc, Methicone, PEG-12 Dimethicone, PEG-3 Dimethicone, Polysilicone-9, PEG-32, Styrene/Stearyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Alumina, Silica, BHT, Tocopherol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, and any opinions on the one listed above would be too!! Thanks in advance.

The best one is to choose a product that doesn't make you break out even more. If the sunscreen you're already using isn't giving you acne or irritation, I don't see a reason to change it.

I like the Avene products though. They're for acne prone and sensitive skin.
