Conceal imperfections while shielding your complexion from the suns harmful rays with EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 - Tinted. The universally flattering tint blends to match your skin tone and mask discoloration and breakouts to give you a smooth, flawless-looking face. Contains lactic acid and healing niacinamide to control oil production and alleviate inflammation to calm your acne flare-ups and decrease signs of hyperpigmentation. A lightweight, oil-free sunscreen for sensitive or acne-prone skin.
Important usage tip: If you are currently a user of CE Ferulic, glycolic acid or my "strong acids" kit during the day, I recommend using a sunscreen that does not contain niacinamide (unless you can wait at least 30 minutes before application). The low pH of all these stronger acids will render the niacinamide ineffective and the combination with UV exposure can produce pro-oxidative hydrogen peroxide. If you want to use this product after those, wait at least 30 minutes between application.
If you don't want to wait 30 minutes, my best recommendation for a substitute is the EltaMD SPF 40 Restore, Tinted.
