Selecting the right sunscreen is a crucial step in maintaining healthy and radiant skin. However, for individuals with sensitive skin, finding an appropriate product can be a challenging task. Certain sunscreen ingredients can cause redness, irritation and even breakouts. Therefore, it's essential to opt for a sunscreen that is specifically formulated for sensitive skin. When shopping for sunscreen, look for products labeled "fragrance-free" and "hypoallergenic." These products are designed to be gentle on the skin and reduce the risk of irritation. Additionally, choose sunscreens that contain physical blockers such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, instead of chemical blockers like oxybenzone or avobenzone. Physical blockers sit on top of the skin and reflect UV rays, while chemical blockers absorb UV rays and can potentially cause skin irritation.
