You Must Avoid These Ingredients at All Costs Want to cure your breakouts? Put down the sunscreen. All three dermatologists warn that sunscreen is a huge acne trigger because many of the ingredients are oil-based. Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas recommends minimizing your sun exposure and only wearing an oil-free sunscreen if you're spending extended periods outside.
Keep an eye on the ingredient labels on your makeup and skin care products, too. Ingredients like vitamin E, avocado oil, algae extract and sodium lauryl sulfate are highly comedogenic, which is a big fancy word for "muck up your pores."
