Acne and sun: which protection to choose?
Using a sun cream every morning is essential for all skin types and especially for acne-prone skin. However, not all creams are suitable for this type of skin.
Favour specific or mineral sun creams with a high protection factor. Also favour the least amount of comedogenic ingredients so as not to clog the pores and worsen the skin’s condition. You will thus avoid hyperpigmentation of the skin.

Another point on which you must remain vigilant: sun protection must be compatible with your possible pharmacological treatment (epidermal treatment, medication) against acne. Indeed, certain active ingredients contained in certain therapeutic treatments, such as benzoyl peroxide, tretinoin, adapalene and azelaic acid, can increase the skin’s sensitivity to UVA and UVB rays.
