Thanks for your query.

You can use any gel based sunscreen to avoid pimples. Gels are water based compounds and don’t block pores and hence don’t cause acne.

Sunscreens like “Suncote Gel” / “ Suncross UVA Aqua Gel” are few of the sunscreens that can be used in acne prone skin.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other query.

Thanks for writing back
SPF or sun protection factor gives a protection value for UVB rays which are harmful in the sense that they cause skin cancer. For protection against tanning, coverage for UVA is required.
Suncote provides both protection against UVA and UVB and has a SPF of 30.
