If sunscreen has a tendency to sit on top of your skin, clog your pores and cause rash-like breakouts, then you’re in luck. We’ve compiled this guide to help you separate the greasy, chalky, and pimple-inducing formulas from the ones that are free from skin irritants like parabens, fragrances, and dyes.
Keep reading to find out which natural sunblocks are worth adding to your beauty arsenal.
Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer
Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen and Primer simultaneously shields against sun damage, hydrates skin without leaving it greasy, and helps keeps makeup in place.
Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30
As its name suggests, this sunscreen is actually transparent, so it won’t leave any ghost-like white residue or heavy greasiness. It’s also packed with skin-loving ingredients, like raspberry seed and marula oils, to hydrate skin and help minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50
This zinc-based formula blends seamlessly into the skin, without cloging pores or leaving a dreaded white cast. It also boasts vitamin C, which works to naturally brighten discoloration, and ingredients that neutralize free radicals.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50
You may not have heard of La Roche-Posay, but once you try their products, you won’t go back. In particular, their non-perfumed, ultra-light Anthelios fluid offers SPF 50+ but feels completely weightless on the skin—a big plus!
Invisible Zinc Tinted Daywear SPF 30
For the days we just can’t be bothered with a full-face of makeup, this lightweight, tinted daywear cream is a great option. It will help even out your skin tone while providing sun protection. All this, coupled with the fact that it doesn’t break us out, makes it a clear winner in our book.
