10 Sunscreens That Won't Make Your Sensitive Skin Freak Out



We can all agree wearing sunscreen is important—in fact, celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau asserts it's the most important step in any anti-aging skincare routine. But finding a formula that works for your specific skin can be challenging. Certain sunscreens can cause irritation, breakouts, greasiness, and white residue. And while you may be tempted to use a chemical blend rather than physical (they're usually lighter, clearer, and more serum-like), chemical sunscreens absorb UVA-UVB rays into your skin and transform the rays into heat, which can damage the dermis (and sting your eyes).

Instead, opt for a physical sunscreen, but if you suffer from the aforementioned ailments, sensitive skin formulas are your new best friend. Below, find our favorites.
