If you have oily skin, finding a sunscreen that doesn't make your skin feel greasy or clog your pores can be a challenge. However, that is not to suggest there's a dearth of such sunscreens. You need a formulation that physically blocks the sun's rays, rather than absorbing them into the skin. This helps in preventing breakouts or causing irritation on oily skin. The sunscreen should also be able to absorb excess oil and leave the skin looking matte and shine-free. So, always look for a sunscreen that is labelled "oil-free" or "non-comedogenic" to ensure that it won't clog your pores.
