Happy Friday! Today, I am sharing with you my sunscreen picks for different skin types. Sunscreen is the most important part of any skincare regimen. It helps prevent early signs of aging, sunspots, and most importantly, skin cancer. It’s the one step that matters the most and that makes all of the other steps in a skincare routine work better. Note: I know that some brands offer a wonderful selection of sunscreens, like La Roche Posay. But, they are not cruelty-free so I won’t mention them in this list!

Now, don’t forget to check out my previous post: 9 HABITS THAT BOOSTED MY SELF-ESTEEM and let’s get into it!

The Best Sunscreen For your Skin Type

Oily Skin

This Paula’s Choice sunscreen is ideal for oily skin because of its matte finish. It’s lightweight and contains soothing properties to relieve redness. It also has a subtle tint to avoid any white cast and is gentle enough for sensitive skin!

Combination to Oily Skin

This daily hydrating moisturizer with SPF 50 by Paula’s Choice is a favorite because it has this amazing fluid formula that feels extremely lightweight. It is hydrating but does not feel greasy, which makes it perfect for oily skin. Unlike the previous product, this one does not dry to a matte finish and is not tinted. In general, Paula’s Choice offer a wide selection of sun protection product so definitely check them out!

Acne prone and sensitive skin

The breakout proof serum with SPF 50 by ZitSticka is ideal for acne prone skin. It has a lightweight formula, blends super easily on the skin and contains some acne fighting ingredients. It’s a favorite because of its unique serum texture, the fact that it protects your skin barrier and does not leave a white cast.

Normal To Combination Skin

Weightless, hydrating and protective, this sunscreen by Australian brand Naked Sundays is an amazing pick for normal skin. It leaves a glowy finish without looking greasy and looks invisible on the skin!

Dry and sensitive skin

This daily moisturizing lotion by Paula’s Choice is godsend for dry and sensitive skin. It contains a unique complex of anti-aging peptides and feels rich and moisturizing on the skin. Personally, I have a combination to dry skin but I love to use this one as a moisturizer and sunscreen. Considering sunscreens are creams, they can easily replace your AM moisturizer.

The Best sunscreen For Your Skin Type

    I don’t know why I didn’t think about sunscreen needing to be for different skin types like a skincare routine. Definitely looking more into this
