I've been blessed with a skin type that doesn't tolerate much. You can forget mineral sunscreen, because titanium dioxide and zinc oxide clog my pores. As far as chemical sunscreens go, I'll be lucky to ever find one that doesn't contain some weird silicone or thickening agent that will either break me out or sting. I'm coming so close to just giving up on the search, as I do not think breakouts are worth a little SPF when I spend maybe two hours maximum outside everyday. Don't get me wrong, I slather sunscreen on during any vacations to the beach, but I can take a week of breakouts to avoid looking like a lobster. At the risk of being struck down by the dermatology gods, I am going to say that maybe "the daily use of sunscreen" isn't for me.
|It looks pretty promising, right?|
|My last hope!|
I refuse to believe that I'm the only one out there struggling to find the perfect everyday sunscreen. All I want is something non-greasy, that doesn't break me out. Is that too much to ask? What do you all think? Do you have a Holy Grail sunscreen, or are you on the treacherous Sunscreen Journey as well?
