The Best Sunscreens for Oily Skin in 2020 (Dermatologist Recommended) – The benefits of putting on daily sunscreen is not exactly news but people with oily or acne-prone skin are still hesitant to use sunscreens because they’re afraid that it can cause or aggravate their condition.

Normal sunscreen formulations are indeed thick and add a greasy layer on the skin, so this belief is not unwarranted.

For people like us with oily skin, choosing the right sunscreen is (really) easier said than done; especially with thousands of products out there and with our health on the line.

What you need from your sunscreen goes beyond sun protection–it should complement your skin and adjust to your skin’s needs at every turn.

Luckily, sunscreens have come a long way from making you look like a geisha on the street!

The key is choosing a sunscreen that not only has solid sun protection but also has the right formulation that suits your needs and skin type. One that makes you look good and feel great.

In this article, we’ll tackle the type of sunscreen products those with oily and acne-prone skin types should be choosing, as well as a list of the highest-rated and best-performing ones out in the market today.

By the end, we want you to be an educated consumer and make an informed choice when choosing the perfect sunscreen.

For acne-prone and/or oily skin, dermatologists recommend using sunscreens that are non-comedogenic, with lightweight formulas that has a matte finish so it controls your oil production and won’t clog your pores. A great sunscreen should also blend flawlessly into your skin for an invisible protection.

Non-comedogenicity should apply to all your products as well, from moisturizers to primers and foundations. It only takes one bad product to break you out.

Regarding which sunscreen is ultimately better–once all the boxes above are ticked, it all comes down to its compatibility to your skin.

Best for: Oily skin, Under makeup

Obagi Medical – Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Matte Sunscreen Lotion

As mentioned in the earlier video, this is a mineral-based product with a super matte finish that’s perfect for oily skin. It has a silky and lightweight consistency which makes it easy to apply (unlike most sunscreens). I’m quite surprised though that for an anti-aging brand, it has very few anti-aging ingredients (less than Paula’s Choice!). That said, I still love that it’s a solid SPF 50 and has a formulation that doubles as a primer. It melts into the skin so it can be worn flawlessly under makeup. Make sure to pair with the best non comedogenic primers to avoid any breakouts.

Key Sun Protection:

  • Broad Spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF 50 Sunscreen
  • Actives: 10.5% Zinc Oxide, 7.5% Octinoxate – deflects solar radiation, absorbs UV and disperses it as heat
 

Additional Benefits:

  • Great formulation  can double as a primer and worn flawlessly under makeup.
  • Brand prestige & endorsement – Widely used by dermatologists, surgeons, and physicians around the globe.
  • PABA-free – PABA (Para-Aminobenzoic acid) used in many sunscreen formulations that can cause allergic dermatitis rash and in the worst cases deepen pigment in the skin, causing an even greater risk for skin cancer.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Skin Cancer Foundation Recommended for Daily Use.
 

Best for: All Skin types especially Oily and Acne-prone Skin, Daily Use, Under makeup (doubles as a primer)

Type of Sunscreen: Hybrid – physical sunblock + chemical sunscreen

Consistency & Finish: Non-greasy, Sheer, Silky (almost immediately blends into the skin), Matte finish

Cons: On the high-end scale, as the Obagi line is primarily used by physicians and dermatologists. Only a few antioxidants, which is quite a letdown as it comes from a well-known anti-aging brand. Not water-resistant. Great for daily use, but not intense outdoor activities.

About the Brand: Obagi Medical is one of the leading skincare providers for dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical clinics, and other skin care professionals worldwide. Obagi products specialize in anti-aging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and other skin issues. Whilst some of their products are available only via prescription (and come with a “system” or regimen), their sunscreen line is made available OTC and for individual use.

Best for: Oily & Sensitive skin

MDSolarSciences™ – Mineral Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen

MDSolarSciences™’ flagship product is not actually this mineral crème, but their Daily Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB SPF 30. It’s an all-in-one protection/repair moisturizer-sunscreen-and-anti-aging lotion that has powerful collagen peptides, niacinamide, and antioxidants that help reduce the signs of UV damage like sun spots, fine lines, redness. It’s a lightweight lotion ideal for all skin types. Now while this is a great product, the reason we’ve ultimately chosen the mineral crème is because of its matte finish and quick blendability. These two key benefits are essential in sunscreens for oily skin.

The mineral crème is also heavily favored by makeup artists because it feels more like a primer rather than a sunscreen. It’s non-comedogenic as well, so it won’t clog your pores even if you have acne-prone skin.

Key Sun Protection:

  • Broad Spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF 50 Sunscreen
  • Actives: 2% Titanium Dioxide / 17% Zinc Oxide – Non-nano zinc, meaning its small enough to blend beautifully but bigger than a nano-particle so it stays on the surface on the skin
 

Additional Benefits:

  • Antioxidants to help skin repair – Vitamin C, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract
  • Non-Comedogenic – won’t clog pores. Ideal for Acne-prone skin.
  • Water-resistant – up to 80 minutes.
  • Hypoallergenic. Oil Free. Paraben Free. Fragrance Free. Gluten Free.Ideal for Very Sensitive Skin. Gentle enough for kids 6 months and older.
  • Animal Testing Free. EcoCert® Certified. Skin Cancer Foundation Recommended.
 

Best for: Normal to Oily Skin including Acne/Rosacea Prone (we’re not recommending dry skin based on experience), Sensitive Skin

Type of Sunscreen: Physical sunblock

Consistency & Finish: Lightweight, Creamy, Primer-like/Silicone, Matte finish

Cons: If you have dry patches of skin, it’s going to accentuate them like crazy. It doesn’t moisturize dry areas even though it has a silky consistency, so you’ll have to make sure to exfoliate well and moisturize before using. If you pack it on, it has a tendency to feel heavy because of its silicone, primer-like texture and can leave a white cast. Make sure to only apply a thin layer to avoid this. It’s water-resistant, which is good for outdoor activities but can be tenacious when washing it off. You might need a cleansing brush or an oil cleanser to break it up.

About the Brand: MDSolarSciences™ is created by upper east side dermatologic oncologist Robert J. Friedman, M.D., M.Sc. (Med.) who is a pioneer in the skincare – melanoma field. Together with the Scientific Advisory Council (SAC), the brand specializes in an innovative line of sun care and skin repair products that vary from mineral or physical sunscreens to chemical sunscreens. The difference is their patented formulation that doesn’t use any of the controversial chemicals that can be damaging to coral reefs and are not good for the environment.

Best for: Oily, Acne-prone, & Sensitive skin

Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories – Super Sheer Sunscreen SPF 50

The DCL Sheer Sunscreen has UVA blockers and UVB absorption for solid sun protection. In the same vein; it has hydrators, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients as well that help erase the signs of skin damage and protect it from further environmental harm. This is one of the leading products that offer dual anti-aging and sun protection.

Key Sun Protection:

  • Broad Spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF 50 Sunscreen
  • 10.5% Zinc Oxide, 7.5% Octinoxate – Ultra-micronized zinc oxide that scatters, absorbs, and deflects UVA light
 

Additional Benefits:

  • Strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier – by supplying the skin with its essential fatty acids
  • Non-Comedogenic – won’t clog pores.
  • Hypoallergenic. Paraben-free.
  • An innovative form of Vitamin C – helps evens out skin tone
  • Coenzyme Q10 & Grapeseed – Strong antioxidant protection
  • Sodium Hyaluronate – boosts moisture and helps maintain hydration
  • Vitamin B5 – moisturizes, conditions, and calms the skin
  • Green Tea & Aloe Vera – soothes inflamed or irritated skin
  • Advanced moisturizing complex derived from Sugar Cane and Maize – Prevents skin dehydration
 

Best for: All skin types including Oily Skin and Acne-prone Skin

Type of Sunscreen: Hybrid – physical sunblock + chemical sunscreen

Consistency & Finish: Lightweight, fast-absorbing, translucent, immaculate matte finish that primes skin for makeup

Cons: While that does seem like a lot of added benefits, on the flip side it also opens the possibility of irritation for those with very sensitive skin.

About the Brand: Since the 1980s, Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories (DCL) has been developing cutting-edge formulations using only the highest-grade ingredients to treat skin and hair issues. (DCL is one of the first companies to use glycolic acid in their products.) They have a proprietary approach to skincare called Total Skin™, which is focused on nourishing, strengthening, and protecting the key components of the skin: the stratum corneum, the epidermis, the dermal-epidermal junction, and the dermis. This is why their products are holistic and well-rounded in their functions; from replenishing, repairing, clarifying and refining the skin while preventing future damage for long-term results. This same philosophy in skincare is reflected in their sunscreen.

Best for: Oily & Acne-prone skin

Physician’s Choice – PCA Skin Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45

Their sunscreen formulation is very impressive. It’s one of the fastest to blend, as it absorbs quickly and goes on weightlessly. It’s perfect even under light makeup and from our experience, doesn’t leave a white cast even in flash photography. It’s also recommended for sensitive skin and can be used even after peeling.

Key Sun Protection:

  • Broad Spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF 45 Sunscreen
  • Actives: 9.0% Zinc Oxide / 7.5% Octinoxate – provides broad-spectrum UV protection by reflecting, scattering and absorbing UV rays; absorbs and filters UV rays.

Additional Benefits:

  • Antioxidants that protect skin from UV damage – Silybin, Caffeine
  • Free of synthetic dyes and fragrances, mineral oil, petrolatum, lanolin, and phthalates. – Designed to deliver results without irritation. Ideal for Sensitive Skin.
  • No Animal Testing.
  • Skin Cancer Foundation Recommended for Daily Use.
 

Best for: Oily, Acne-prone, and Sensitive Skin; Daily Use

Type of Sunscreen: Hybrid – physical sunblock + chemical sunscreen

Consistency & Finish: Ultra-sheer, quick-absorbing, weightless finish

Cons: Not water-resistant. Has a tendency to pill if piled on without giving it time to absorb properly.

About the Brand: For over 20 years, PCA Skin has been well-renowned for their chemical peels and professional treatments. They’ve since then expanded to clinically advanced daily skincare, originally distributed only to physicians and licensed medical professionals. Their formulations are results-oriented and only uses ingredients that are uniquely compatible with the skin. Their line of products is especially effective for treating varied skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, hyperpigmentation, rosacea and fine lines and wrinkles.

Best for: Oily & Sensitive skin, Post-procedures

TIZO 2 – Non-Tinted Facial Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40

Another dermatologist-recommended sunscreen, known for its sensitive skin formulation and cosmetically elegant matte finish. It’s gentle enough even for post-procedure use, which makes it a popular go-to sunscreen for clinics.

Their proprietary particle size technology also creates a base that helps foundation and makeup glide in flawlessly.

This formulation is free of oils, fragrances, dyes, preservatives, and chemical sunscreen filters. This lessens any chance of irritation even to the most sensitive of skins.

We’ve chosen the non-tinted version because the shade of the tinted versions we’ve found is not universally flattering. The TIZO3 in our opinion can be too dark for those with fair skin and the TIZO 2 tinted can be too white. (You can purchase both and blend but who has time for this really.) When you apply this version, there’s a slight white cast on initial application that fades into transparency once blended.

Key Sun Protection:

  • Physical Broad Spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF 40 Sunscreen
  • Actives: Titanium Dioxide 8%, Zinc Oxide 3.8%
 

Additional Benefits:

  • Cosmetically elegant – their proprietary particle size technology creates a smooth, flawless base that turns into a silky matte finish; amazing under makeup
  • Gentle enough for very sensitive skin and post-procedures like peels and lasers
  • Photostable – this means it won’t degrade under sunlight unlike most sunscreens
  • Free from preservatives, oils, fragrances, dyes, and chemical sunscreen filters
 

Best for: Oily and Sensitive Skin, Post-procedures like peels and lasers

Type of Sunscreen: Physical sunblock

Consistency & Finish: Cosmetically elegant, feels like an expensive primer instead of a sunscreen; Velvety, matte finish

Cons: Not water resistant. Alternatively, the TIZO3 Tinted Facial Mineral Sunscreen is water resistant for 80 minutes.

Best for: Oily & Sensitive skin, Rosacea

Jan Marini – Skin Research Marini Physical Protectant SPF 45

Unlike chemical sunscreens that get absorbed by the skin, this is a gentle alternative for those who have rosacea or sensitive to synthetic sunscreen ingredients. It uses physical filters to shield the skin from sun damage and premature aging.

Instead of the usual white cast that mineral sunscreens are notorious for, this has a sheer slight tint that works very well for fair to medium tan skin tones. Once blended, it finishes with a satin matte glow.

The formulation includes a unique dose of antioxidants that protect the skin from environmental damage and help fight free radicals while soothing the skin from the heat.

It’s water-resistant as well, making it ideal for outdoor activities.

Key Sun Protection:

  • Broad Spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF 45 Sunscreen
  • Actives: Titanium Dioxide 6%, Zinc Oxide 8% – uses physical filters for full broad spectrum sun protection
 

Additional Benefits:

  • Green Tea Extract & Alpha-Bisabolol – Antioxidants that provide free radical protection while soothing and calming the skin from the stress of UV and heat

Best for: Normal to Oily Skin, Acne-Prone Skin, Sensitive Skin concerned with irritants from chemical sunscreens, Looking for protection from free-radicals

Type of Sunscreen: Physical sunblock

Consistency & Finish: Weightless, universal tint with sheer matte finish

Cons: It’s slightly tinted but is to sheer to provide any real coverage. Its there when you apply it but blends out almost invisibly.
The tint is ideal for those with warm undertones. If you’re on the cooler side i.e. pink, you might look a bit too yellow.

Best for: Oily & Sensitive skin
