    How Do You Pick a Sunscreen?
    Annie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    If you have oily skin or if you have sensitive skin, picking a sunscreen for your face can be difficult as some ingredients can be too greasy or irritating. WebMD has some articles you may find helpful including:
    Sunscreen: How to Select, Apply, and Use It Correctly
    Sunscreen topical drug information .

    It may take some trial and error to find the sunscreen that you like. Look for small sizes to try and if the store has a tester, try it out. If you wear makeup you may want to look for foundations and concealers with sunscreen.

    I have oily skin so I use a tinted sunscreen that has zinc oxide and octinoxate. If you have sensitive skin you may want to look for titanium oxide and zinc oxide as the main ingredients.

    What sunscreens do you use? How many of you don't use or skip on sunscreens when you go outside?
