Mineral or Physical Sunscreen with SPF 50 for Oily Skin

Ah, the sun. It nourishes our planet, brings warmth, and grants us that coveted vitamin D. But the sun can also be a frenemy for those with oily skin. Don't get us wrong, sun protection is crucial, but greasy sunscreens that clog pores and leave us looking like disco balls? No thanks!

Fear not, fellow oily-skinned friends! Lotus Organics is here for your rescue. We'll explore why they're perfect for oily skin, dive into the science behind them, and unveil some tips for finding the perfect lightweight formula that keeps you protected without the shine.

What is Physical Sunscreen?

Physical sunscreens are often referred to as Mineral sunscreens in the skincare industry. They work as a shield by providing a cover on the skin and thus, preventing the sun rays from impacting the skin.

Physical or Mineral sunscreen has broad-spectrum protection that will prevent UV radiation from the skin. They act as a shield that prevents photo ageing, for example, wrinkles, fine lines, and pigmentation. Moreover, mineral sunscreen also helps filter out harmful sun rays coming through the windows.

Why Physical Sunscreens Are Your Oily Skin's BFF

Mineral sunscreens, which are also regarded as physical sunscreens, are like small shields for your skin. They use natural minerals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to sit on the skin, and they work by deflecting and scattering UVA and UVB rays. The difference comes with chemical sunscreens, which absorb the UV rays, converting them into heat, which may sometimes irritate oily skin.

Here's why physical sunscreens are a dream come true for oily complexions:

  • Non-comedogenic: That's this fancy word, no pore clogging, which can help avoid breakouts.

  • Gentle: Physical sunscreens are less irritating than chemical sunscreens; thus, the choice of physical sunscreens is always best for sensitive skin.

  • Broad Spectrum Protection: Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays travel deeply into the epidermis and provoke premature ageing, while UVB rays induce sunburn.

Benefits of applying Physical sunscreen For Oily Skin

  1. Does not aggravate Acne

    People with acne-prone skin tend to believe that sunscreen will aggravate their acne. Chemical sunscreen has a high chance of getting absorbed by the skin, resulting in more breakouts. Mineral sunscreen efficiently protects the acne-prone skin type without causing aggravation.

  2. Does not irritate or Clogs the Pore

    Mineral sunscreen is highly non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores. This reduces the risk of new acne or inflammation on the skin.

  3. Antimicrobial Protection

    The appearance of new pimples might scare you into applying sunscreen on the face. It has been found that zinc oxide is packed with antimicrobial properties as published in the journal. It has been seen that zinc oxide can fight against bacteria. This reduces the risk of redness, allergies, or irritation commonly seen in people with oily or acne-prone skin

  4. Immediate Protection

    With other types of sunscreen, one has to wait a while for the sunscreen to be absorbed into the skin. This is not the case with mineral or physical sunscreen because they make an outer covering on the skin instead of penetrating it.

Powerful ingredients present in Physical Sunscreens

  • Frangipani: Extracts of Frangipani flowers may possess some anti-inflammatory properties, but more research is needed to confirm their topical benefits.
  • Cranberries: Cranberries are a source of antioxidants, which can benefit overall skin health. However, their impact on oiliness requires further investigation.
  • Fresh White Peonies: Peonies are known for their beautiful blooms. They provide your skin with a natural glow.
