sunscreens suited for daily use

I heard that it's recommended to apply sunscreen everyday in order to prevent aging and damage from UV rays, but I'm having trouble finding affordable ones that don't look greasy and flaky once it dries up. I usually use drugstore brands like Nivea and no matter how much I massage my skin always end up looking white and flaky in certain areas and it's really obvious that I have sunscreen on. Do you know any affordable sunscreens that have a light texture and work well for dry/sensitive skin?

I use the Cetaphil Suntivity Liposomal lotion, have used it daily since I've started remembering to put sunscreen on whenever I leave the house. It's spf 50+ (highest you need, any higher and it won't really make a difference because SPF 100 doesn't stop 100% of UV rays), it's formulated for sensitive skin, is broad spectrum, doesn't block pores, isn't greasy, and is suitable under make up. Also it's like 20 AUD at priceline, so it's not that expensive (Especially since shit's marked up like crazy here)

The only thing is I don't know if it's available outside Australia. So if it isn't look for a sunscreen that's

  • broad spectrum 
  • SPF 50-50+ 
  • 4 hours water resistant
  • Won't block pores
  • Is suitable under make up

That or, get a sports sunscreen for your body (Broad spectrum, high SPF, water resistant), and use a primer for dry skin with SPF in it.

Hope this helps!

for everyday sunscreen, i personally use the Oil Control Sun Cream from The Face Shop, it's pretty lightweight and dries up quickly on the skin. like all sunscreens, your skin might look a bit lighter after putting it on but you can't really help it since there's SPF. it's also infused with tea tree oil and aloe vera! so far, it works pretty well for me :alpacaheadshake:

The only invisible  sunscreen that doesn't leave any patches on my skin is Vichy Ideal Soleil Mattifying Face sunscreen, there are different types for dry, normal or oily skin. Though it's really expensive here in Ukraine( don't know about other countries).

It's not only recommended, it's the only thing that prevents aging. I'm hanging around dermatologists enough and even if they try to sell their customers products, in the end… they all agree: it all comes down to suncreen only. So don't feel bad about shelling out some cash for it. If you use an expensive one on your face only, it should last quite a while (but remember, they'll expire after a year) and it will be worth it in the end.

For sunscreen it also heavily depends where you live what they are allowed to sell over the counter. For me, La Roche-Posay has the best value for money and an amazingly wide range. For example a very light fluid, which I can re-apply over my make up during the day. I love that! In the morning I use a gel-type, which somehow works like a primer as well. They gave me samples at my pharmacy, though I don't know if that's common in the Ukraine?

I use the Missha all around safe block sun gel in I believe its 50 spf the texture it quite light. I bought it at a missha store but can also be found on amazon. It has not caused any breakouts and does not dry up 

I also use coppertone sensitive sunscreen  Its a bit thicker but does no get dry or cause breakouts. I used to use neutrogenia but it seems some of their products do not do well for my skin. It can be found at places like target. Coopertone clear sheer is also pretty good - I just don't really like the bottle design haha

And yes wearing sunscreen daily is a good thing to do ^^

Oh, another thing.

Get a chemical barrier sunscreen, not a physical barrier sunscreen. Chemical barriers absorb into the skin, and probably work better with make up. I just have no idea what the active ingredient in chemical barrier ones is... I know physical is zinc oxide.
