FAQs on Sunscreen
Q. Is sunscreen bad for oily skin?
A. Not at all. Sunscreens not only protect your skin from UV rays-that can lead to skin damage- but also protect it from sunburns. Sunscreens also control sebum and make your skin look flawless.
Q. How much SPF is good for oily skin?
A. The ideal SPF range is between 15-30. Any sunscreen that is gel-based and falls under the provided SPF is good for oily skin.
Q. Can sunscreen cause pimples?
A. After applying sunscreen if you notice skin-breakout, then it indicates that either your skin is having an irritant reaction to the sun or to the sunscreen. Make sure you pick the ideal sunscreen that suits your skin so that you can gain maximum benefits.
Q. What type of sunscreen is best for acne?
If you have oily skin or acne-prone skin, opt for sunscreens that are gel-based or powder-based and can give your skin a matte effect.
