It is best to use 100% physical sunscreen, which is suitable for all skin types and conditions. Also, however, it suffers from sensitive skin acne-prone skin, and it can be used post-treatment to give instant SPF protection without adding any moisture to the skin.
Also, it is very important to protect our skin from blue light; the need for protection from blue light has arisen in recent years given that the the source of blue light is not only the sun: digital screens from smartphones, computers and televisions emit a high amount of blue light wavelengths.
