Finding The Best Sunscreen For Sensitive Skin

Tips to help you find the best sunscreen for sensitive skin

If you have skin that is allergy prone and tends to react to most products, chances are you would be better off using a sunscreen for sensitive skin on those hot summer days. Ideally you want something that will give you top notch protection against the UVA and UVB rays of the sun but without the annoying side effects of the various allergens and chemicals that come with most sunscreens. When looking for a sunscreen for sensitive skin, you will want to avoid products that contain paraminobenzoic acid, dioxybenzone, oxybenzone and sulisobenzone, all of which are harsh chemicals that tend to cause skin reactions. Look for a sunscreen that contains titanium oxide or zinc oxide, which protect skin without being completely absorbed.

Be sure to avoid sunscreens that contain alcohol, fragrance and other preservatives, as these all tend to aggravate skin allergies in people with sensitive skin. Aveeno Active Naturals Natural Protection Mineral Block Sunscreen Lotion is an excellent sunscreen for sensitive skin that is waterproof and dermatologist recommended, and works by forming a protective barrier over the skin that scatters both UVA and UVB rays. It also contains natural oat to providing a soothing sensation for skin. Other brands that make great sunscreens include La Roche Posay and Vanicream.
