Hello i suddenly got outburst of acne on my chin and cheeks few weeks back i changed my sunscreen to sunprotect from torrent pharma …it says non comodogenic but it doesnt luk lik d one keepcalm had shown in the pic and the price is 225 …i visited doctor for my acne he prescribed me ivotex tablets , benzol peroxide and clerome gel for applyinh ot locally on my acne. I wanyed to know is the sunscreen causing acne? Plz help!!:( 🙁
Nandu , the sunscreen is in a lotion base and yes , it comes in a pump bottle right? It has titanium dioxide as well – do physical sunscreens irritate your skin ?
I have been using this sunscreen for almost 3 weeks now ,and it has not given me any breakouts. Since they do not list the whole ingredient list , I cannot even recommend the sunscreen just like that. However they do mention that it is a non comedogenic sunscreen. It suits me well though for winters – gel sunscreens dry my skin out in winters.
What does your doctor have to say about this sunscreen ? If you think it`s breaking you out – you can use it on the not-so-acne prone areas of your body like your hands , and use suncote gel – it hasnt broken anyone out so far.
Nandu, is this the one you are using? This is the one @keepcalmandcureacne is using (I think).
No no mine comes in a white pump bottle , this is not the one. Cant find pics of it online , will put up a pic then… The problem is they dont list the ingredient list of their lotion base – but it didnt break me out. They do mention that it`s non comedogenic though.
Hey keepcalm, ya…its d one wid pump … N yes its a gud moisturiser… But i xinno.is it coincidental oir really dat sunscreen is causing acne! Uff! I donno wat to do i hv a new bottle of sunprotect and lotus sunscreen :'(:'(
Nandu, Keepcalm is using tretinoin as her acne treatment (the last I heard), so that may be the reason she’s not seeing breakouts from using this possibly comedogenic sunscreen. We know how even non-comedogenic labelled products can cause breakouts, so I do believe you that your breakouts may be because of this sunscreen.
If you are anywhere in the north of India, try to get your hands on Sunprotek Gel (not lotion) SPF 30 or 50. Some people are using it here and have only good things to say about its truely non-comedogenic nature. Lotus sunscreens are comedogenic, so do not experiment further. Use up Sunprotect and Lotus on the arms and neck.
