Sunscreen should always form part of your daily skincare routine, no matter the season one should ALWAYS apply on a sunscreen. Most sunscreens are very rich and when makeup is applied over it, it can often make it slide off or if you have oily acne-prone skin sunscreen can leave your pores feeling clogged up and your skin shining just as bright as the sun, which is why Eucerin created a sunscreen that offers superior sun protection for oily, acne-prone skin.
Eucerin Sun Oil Control Dry Touch SPF 50+ (that’s a mouth full) offers superior photoprotection and anti-shine effect for oily and acne-prone skin. During summer my skin tends to get very oily around the t-zone which causes me to breakout and leaves behind dark marks. UV rays can stimulate the skin cells, sending oil production into overdrive. Oily skin is often accompanied by blemishes which makes the skin extremely prone to dark marks and pigmentation when exposed to the sun’s UV rays.
Many facial sunscreens can overload oily skin leaving it feeling greasy, clogging pores and causing blemishes. Everyone wants healthy looking skin and shouldn’t have to compromise on their sunscreen for the fear of breaking out.
Eucerin focused on oily acne-prone skin individuals and developed a tailor-made solution for it, Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch Face SPF50+. Eucerin Oil Control sunscreen offers active sun protection with oil control technology.
Most UV filter substances are lipid based which are often too rich for oily, acne-prone skin, the main challenge is to support the regulation of sebum production. Eucerin developed a lighter filter system that functions well with a drastically reduced proportion of oil-based filters- without compromising on UV protection.
How does it work? Eucerin uses additional actives that protect various layers of the skin from sun-induced skin damage. The Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch Face SPF50+ contains ingredients for a cellular DNA protection:
- Licochalcone A (Glycyrrhiza Inflata), obtained from licorice root, works on the epidermal layers closest to the surface. That is where effective antioxidants intercept radicals formed by UV rays and render them harmless.
- Glycyrrhetinic Acid, also an active of natural origin, protects the DNA contained in the cell nuclei, which is damaged by solar radiation and additionally it even supports skin’s own DNA repair.
- The amino acid-like substances L-Carnitine, which is produced naturally by the body, promotes the transport of fatty acids into the cell mitochondria, where they are then metabolized and degraded. This then presents the fatty acids from transforming into sebum, significantly reducing the amount of sebum that appears in the skin’s surface.
- A unique combination of three mattifying lipid-absorbing pigments provides an instant anti-shine effect, leaving a dry matte finish and a soft, non-sticky feeling on the skin.
Research shows that Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch Face Cream SPF50+ effectively protects oily, acne-prone skin short-term and long-term from UV induced damage.
The Eucerin Oil Control sunscreen is white in colour and is soft and light in texture, it has a slight pleasant scent, it quickly absorbs into the skin and does not leave any white sticky residue (which often puts everyone off sunscreens), it has a dry matte finish (anti-shine effect) and is SPF50+ which is very high in protection.
This sunscreen has become my new best friend I can’t leave the house without applying it on and the long-lasting matte finish creates the perfect base (acts as a primer) for makeup. Moe has really oily skin and is also loving this product as it keeps his face oil-free throughout the day.
I received a cute tin which contained a couple of these sunscreens in a small 20ml tube packaging, I’ve shared some with friends and family. The small travel size lasts quite long (a couple of months) and is so convenient when travelling. I took this baby with me on my recent trip to Malaysia where it is hot and humid but with this sunscreen I was able to stay oil-free and my skin was matte throughout the day. Even though it has a matte effect it does not leave my skin feeling dry but rather leaves it feeling soft to the touch, hydrated and protected from the sun.
Everyone that I have shared this sunscreen with is enjoying it just as much as I am, I can’t imagine not using it now and will definitely purchase the full size once I run out☺.
