I want to wear sunscreen but it’s going to make me break out - what to do

Sunscreen is super important to prevent skin cancers and wrinkles. So while it can be super annoying to add one more thing into your daily skin routine, two or three or four decades from now, you will be glad you did. Many teens complain that sunscreens make them break out - the thick, greasy lotions in particular. That’s why face-specific sunscreens were invented! These less greasy versions feel better going on the skin and come off more easily with end of day face washing. Tinted sunscreens actually work even better than non-tinted ones, because the particles carrying color also reflect sunlight. So give one of those a try… but remember to look at yourself in natural light to make sure that the tint you chose actually matches your skin tone.
