Dear Meagan, I'm thinking to buy a sunscreen, but don't know what kind of sunscreen I should use. I'm a 38-year-old woman with a mild acne problem. Because of using acne treatment, I sometimes have dry areas on my face. Could you recommend me some good sunscreens? Will mineral powder sunscreens dry out my skin? Thank you for your help!

Meagan, Could you please recommend a sunscreen for oily and acne prone skin. Are the Skin Ceutical sunscreens good, or are they too heavy for oily skin? With the ColorScience sunscreen, do you use that under or over your makeup? I am currently using the Jane Iredale makeup, which has a sunscreen, but I am wanting additional sunscreen. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much. Jennifer.
Hello. I've read that sunscreen should be applied every two hours. However, what if i apply sunscreen in the morning, and don't go out in the sun until 5 or 6 hours later. Would the sunscreen still be effective? In other words, does sunscreen become less effective when it is exposed to the sun, or just when it's on the skin. Another thing, I've noticed some acne on my face after using sunscreen. Is there a brand that you would recommend for acne prone skin? Is there really a sunscreen that lasts all day (AS Durascreen claim)? Thanks a million!
