You do the right thing and slather sunscreen on your face before a day at the beach, but you wind up with a massive breakout on your face. First, kudos for wearing sunscreen. It’s the single best way to prevent sunburns, skin cancer and wrinkles. Second, you probably won’t want to put that sunscreen on your face again. Fortunately, there are loads of great sun protection products made for girls like us. That is, those with sensitive skin. Here they are!
1 Coppertone Sensitive Skin Lotion
This is #1 for a reason! Not only is it designed for your sensitive facial skin, but you can also wear it on your entire body. That means you only have to carry one product to the beach or the park and you can keep your entire body protected with ease. Dermatologists recommend wearing an SPF of at least 30 and reapplying every two hours, or after getting wet and toweling off.
2 Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion
Neutrogena is a well-known skincare brand that produces products for all skin types. If you have sensitive skin, you will love this product. It comes with a name you can trust and delivers on its promise to give you the ultimate in skin protection on your face, without causing you to break out in pimples.
3 Vanicream Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin
Not only does this sunscreen protect against both UVA and UVB rays, but it also contains a wealth of antioxidants. That means you get extra protection from oxidation, a process that causes cellular changes that can lead to skin cancer. That’s pretty important, if you ask me! You are going to love this sunscreen.
4 Fallene Cotz plus Water Resistant Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin
Whether you are a beach babe or a swimming pool kind of girl, you will love that you can swim without worry that this sunscreen will wear off. That’s perfect if you spend more time in the water than on land during the summer. However, you will still have to reapply every couple of hours and if you dry your face, you’ll wipe most of it off, so you’ll need more.
5 Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance
If you have sensitive skin, you will adore this sunscreen. It smells really wonderful and it contains shea butter, which is an ingredient that is ideal for girls with sensitive skin. The product is lightweight, but doesn’t skimp on coverage so you can feel good about wearing it.
6 Dermalogica Super Sensitive Faceblock
This all-natural product is probably one of the best you’ll find for sensitive skin. It contains zinc oxide, titanium oxide, green tea and lavender. That means you get ample skin protection on your face without worrying about fine lines, wrinkles and breakouts. This product doesn’t come cheap, but if you see results, it will be totally worth the price tag.
7 Solbar AVO Sunscreen
This product is perfect for girls who don’t react well to zinc oxide and titanium oxide. Though these ingredients are usually fine for sensitive skin, some people react to them. If that’s you, try this alternative sunscreen that contains avobenzone instead. If you can’t find it in stores, check the Internet or talk to your dermatologist.
Do you have sensitive skin? I hope this lists makes it clear that you can definitely enjoy your summer without sunburns or breakouts. Do you see a product here that you’re going to try this summer? Here’s to bright, sunny days with beautiful skin!
