In the nature of things, sunscreen and oily skin do not go hand in hand. This strikes me as a strange combination to use sunscreen on oily skin. But people with oily skin need to have a perfect sunscreen to protect their faces. A sunscreen that will not feel greasy when they apply it to the face. The last thing a person with oily skin wants or needs is a sunscreen that will add excess oil to an already oily surface. Ideally, the perfect sunscreen for oily skin will have a high SPF rating and absorb the oil from the skin not add to it. Of course, the product must not clog the pores which will prevent the natural oils from the skin to be released. It needs to reduce the sweating and protect the skin from sunburn and other related damage the sun can inflict on the skin. It would be nice not to deplete the bankroll for the product either. We want to make sure the sunscreen will not absorb all the oils so the skin is left dry and flaky looking. An unsightly combination would be oily skin that is sunburn and has red dry splotches on the skin. Do not give hope there are sunscreen products out there to meet your unique needs if you have oily skin.
