Oil-Proof Your Sunscreen: Oily Skin's Best Friends

Oil-Proof Your Sunscreen: Oily Skin's Best Friends

In each and every of our blogs, or even if you read any other sites or ask any dermatologist, they will give you the same answer that sunscreen is the holy grail of skincare’. However there are some conflicts to this as well, as people with oily and combination skin don't tend to like sunscreen that much. 

The reason being sunscreen’s usually contain high oil amounts which makes the oily skin appear more oily and further clogs the pores as well. Choosing the perfect sunscreen for oily skin is a complex task indeed, as most available products are with high-oil content, and the one’s with matt finish are also not that great. 

Sunscreen for oily skin: how to choose?

Before you step out on the great expedition of finding the best sunscreen for face, here are some tips for you to consider. 

  • Check for SPF content 

The first thing you should check before buying a sunscreen for oily skin is the SPF content. It should be a minimum of SPF 30 or higher. 

Try the Sun stoppable sunscreen with SPF 30 or 50 by Fabbeu which are suitable for oily skin. These sunscreens are also safe and suitable for the delicate teenage skin. The SPF 50 sunscreen by Fabbeu is a suitable fit for oily skin type. 

  • Broad spectrum formulas

A sunscreen doesn’t only serve one purpose; instead it should have a broad spectrum formula that can help you have protection against UVA and UVB. Here you can explore the Blue light moisturizer by  Fabbeu which works both as a sunscreen for face and offers protection against photoaging, digital pollution, blue rays, along with hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and early signs of aging. Also this is suitable for all age groups irrespective of skin type. 

  • Non-comedogenic 

Sunscreen for oily skin should have non-comedogenic properties or else the regular sunscreen might clog the pores further leading to issues such as acne and redness.

  • Matte finish

Oily skin doesn’t require more oil to show up on their face and cause further skin irritation. Hence, while buying sunscreen for oily skin make sure that they have a matte finish to reduce the oily look. 

  • Low oil content 

Sunscreen cream for face should have lower oil content when being used by oily skin types as it won’t clog the pores. Sunscreen with high oil content will prevent the skin from breathing and will accumulate in the enlarged open pores which can cause further damage to the skin. 

  • Hydrating 

Sunscreen for oily skin should be hydrating as well. In general sunscreens tend to form a thick layer on the skin to lock in moisture, but with oily skin type that is an issue. Hence, the sunscreen cream for face should not form a thick layer and should be hydrating as well. 

What to avoid?

Now that you know what points to look for or consider while buying sunscreen, here is what you should ignore while buying sunscreen for oily skin. 

Avoid any sunscreen that contains either coconut oil, mineral oil, or petrolatum as they can form a thick layer on the skin preventing any exchange of moisture or sweat. These ingredients might be a great fit for sunscreen for people with relatively dry skin as they need moisture locked in the skin for a long period of time. 

Benefits of using sunscreen

Here are some of the most common benefits that can be reaped by using sunscreen everyday. 

  • UV protection 

It’s no hidden fact that the sun radiation or UV rays are harmful for the skin and can cause several skin issues, and aggravate already existing skin problems as well. Hence, using a sunscreen with SPF 50 or 30 creates a layer of protection which acts as a barrier and prevents the UV radiation from affecting your face. 

  • Tan preventing 

Sun tan is another aspect of sun damage that we all have to deal with, but this can be prevented with frequent sunscreen applications. Our skin can easily get tanned with long exposure to sun, and can damage the skin cells.

  • Controls signs of aging

Long exposure to UV radiations can accelerate the process of aging, and cause early aging signs such as blemishes and wrinkles. With proper application of sunscreen this can be prevented and you can have young skin for a longer period of time. 

  • Reduces chances of skin cancer

With long term exposure to sun radiation, UV rays can cause mutation in our genes which can further lead to issues such as skin cancer. This can even be lethal if not caught at an early stage and without proper treatment. But with constant application and reapplication of sunscreen you can prevent this from happening, and maintain your healthy skin. 

  • Even skin texture

Another benefit of using sunscreen cream for face is that it helps to maintain an even skin texture as there won’t be any acne, scars, or pigmentations visible. Hence, your skin will look even, healthy and glowing.
