- Question: I recently switched from MD Forte Sunscreen(SPF 30) to LAroche Posay's ANthelios XL(SPF 60) CREME FONDANTE because I read that MExoryl provides better protection from UVA rays than Zinc Oxide. I did not want Avobenzone based cream becuase it Avobenzone is not stable and breaks down easily. However my face is breaking out with Anthelios. I would like to avoid aging and sun damage with the most effective product without getting acne. I have sensitive skin which swtiches between dryness and oiliness.Is there a Mexoryl based sunscreen which is ideal for very sesntitive skin and protects against UVA and UVB rays.Or will MD Forte do the job as well as Anthelios?
There are far fewer sunscreens that contain Mexoryl then those that contain the normal sunscreen properties. As far as I know the La Roche Posay product you tried and a L’Oreal product are some of the few that contain this ingredient. Sorry I could not be more helpful. Best skin care wishes.
