My Picks – 5 Non Sticky Sunscreen For Acne Prone Skin

Sunscreen For Acne Prone Skin

Exposure to sun leads to lot of skin problems. While there is no full proof protection from sun rays, we can minimise the effect of tanning and sun burn by using sunscreens. Indian market is flooded by loads of sunscreen lotions and creams, each claiming differently and each having distinct features. All skin types need sunscreen and moisturizer. Most of the sunscreen products are moisturizers themselves.

I have myself struggled with acne for a long time and wasn’t aware of products that work without clogging pores. Concentrating on oily combination or acne prone skin, here are few of the sunscreen products that have good opinions and reviews about suiting oily skin.


Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel  (Review here)

Gel formula gets easily absorbed in the skin without leaving any white cast. Formula is non sticky and hasn’t broken me out. Oily skin girls are going to enjoy this to the maximum as it makes the skin shine free and clean looking.

Rs. 225 for 50 gm


Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel SPF 20 (Review here)

Though only SPF 20 is included in this sunscreen, it is a very soothing and a cooling gel on the skin. It gives immediate relief to the skin. It is light weight and non-greasy when applied, yet provides good hydration.

Rs. 320 for 100 ml


Cetaphil Daylong Ultra-light GELFLUID – SPF 30 PA+++ (Reviewed here)

This comes with SPF 30 that effectively protects the skin from sun damage and prevents the signs of ageing and wrinkles. It has a non-sticky matte formula and is easy to spread across the skin. It is suitable for super sensitive skin.

Rs. 1200 for 30 ml


Inveda Sun Screen Cream Gel SPF 50 PA+++ (Reviewed here)

This is a broad spectrum sunscreen which is clinically proven. It is water resistant and does not wash away easily on sweating. It is non-sticky and gives a powdery feel on application.

It removes tan and prevents skin from damage causing by harsh sun rays.

Rs. 490 for 50 gm


Ansolar Daily Use SPF 30 (Reviewed here)

This is suitable for sensitive and high sun intolerant skin. It is oil free, water resistant and sweat resistant easily up to 6 hours. This is the sunscreen my dermatologist suggested when I was undergoing a treatment for uneven skintone and blemishes. I got to know that my skin has adult acne issues, which was quite surprising for me because I never thought that even dry skin can struggle with acne issues. Its non-comedogenic and was prescribed to me by the dermatologist making it one of mt favorite sunscreen For Acne Prone Skin

Rs 650 for 60 g

    I was using Ansolar Daily Use SPF 30 for more than 3 years,.. It was perfect for my acne prone skin and for me also it was suggested by a dermatologist. But it was out of stock most of the time and after I tried Ansolar SPF 60, I got acne’s all over my face. So stopped using it and now using Bioderma Photoderm AKN MAt SPF 30. Nice post

    I was expecting Neutrogena dry touch sunscreen to be in your list. Isn’t that good too?

    • October 13, 2015


      Its a good one, however I haven’t tried it so didn’t include in the list.

    Nice post. Very helpful for people like me with oily skin. This summer I tried Kaya sweat proof sunscreen. It is nicely mattifying and works well on oily skin.
