Fact: Applying SPF every day (yes, even when it’s cloudy) is essential. But for those with acne-prone skin, the idea of lathering a thick, greasy cream onto your face isn’t exactly appealing. Enter these six “non-comedogenic” (meaning that they don’t block pores) sunscreens that will protect your complexion without causing breakouts. Now that’s what we call fun in the sun.

1. Elta MD UV Daily Broad-Spectrum

Specifically formulated with acne-prone skin in mind, this dermatologist favorite doesn’t just protect skin from sun damage, but it also helps to rejuvenate it thanks to hyaluronic acid that increases moisture content and prevents water loss. Available in tinted or untinted, it’s also beneficial to those with rosacea or any hyperpigmentation.

Now available at the recently relaunched Dermstore site, where there's a new focus on skincare education and high quality beauty products.

2. CeraVe Sunscreen Face Lotion

This oil-free and water-resistant formula is brilliantly lightweight, meaning it gives your skin room to breathe (aka no clogged pores) and is quickly absorbed, meaning it won’t leave a white film all over your face. (Because the ghost thing is just not a good look.)

3. Colorescience Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Sunscreen

If you’ve been traumatized by too many chalky sunscreens in the past, then maybe it’s time to give powdered SPF a go. This sheer mineral powder is easily applied with a retractable brush (ahem, so there’s no excuse not to re-apply). It also offers blue (HEV) light protection (i.e., the light from electronic devices). Extra bonus? It won’t mess up your makeup.

4. Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Tint

This tinted formula blocks harmful UV rays and protects against free radicals, smog and pollution. It also boasts an oil-free and delicately moisturizing texture, meaning you can slather away without worrying about breakouts.

5. Avène Mineral Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen

Dealing with breakouts and sensitive skin can feel like a double whammy, but this milky formula ticks all the boxes: non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. It’s also infused with Avène Thermal Spring Water (to soothe irritated skin) and vitamin E (for antioxidant protection).

6. La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Face & Body Melt-In Sunscreen Milk

The French skin-care experts nailed it with this ultra-light and non-greasy sunscreen. With a cooling texture that practically melts into skin, this face and body lotion is easily absorbed without irritating acne-prone skin.
