Thinking to stop using spf

I use spf regularly, I used Beauty of Joseon rice spf, La roche possay spf, bondi sands, skin1004 they all feel weird on my skin and give me acne I'm currently using skin1004 and this has caused red bumps on my face I think spf is just making my skin a lot worse I'm 20 years old and my acne seems to be getting worse daily I am also using adapelene but I believe the spf is triggering acne I'm considering to stop using spf

i had acne as a teenager and it is mainly hormonal, i don't think spf will make a difference but then i also don't think we in Britain really need to use it except during heatwaves. look into roaccutane if your acne is severe - don't spend a penny on anything else, nothing else helps acne except ageing and growing out of it
You should put suncream at least on your face whenever you’ll be outside for 15+ minutes. I have really sensitive skin (eczema/acne prone) and I use aveeno products. Both the suncream and the moisturiser have been alright on my face and not made my skin any worse

spf is important for your skin, you just need to find one - don't follow trending sun creams - do ur own research. It will take more time but its more worth it.

If you are a woman and it's possible for you, have you tried going on the pill? It really cleared up my skin. I would say that you should keep trying to use spf if possible as even when it's clouded over, some UV still gets through. Sun damage also worsens hyperpigmentation. Simple (the brand) products were really good for my face as they're for sensitive skin and I know that they do an spf.

AVENOO is the BEST for eczema and acne prone, dry, sensitive skin.
OP should deffo check it out.

Also, whileyes overusing spf during winter can lead to vit d deficiency and we so oh badly need vit d in this country which has seemed to have banned the existence of the sun, and yes its not needed when indoors, spf is recommended to be used everyday.

UV rays can come thru the clouds even if the sun is not visible and its better to be safer than sry. Why risk the possibility of getting skin cancer - not saying not wearing spf will lead to skin cancer btw.
Also, if u wear actives like AHAs or BHAs id recommend wearing spf as ur skin is more sensitive to sunglight/UV rays.

But too much of a good thing is too much of a good thing. A little sun is actually good for acne so maybe on days when u wear actives, or u see tht the sun is out, then wear spf. Other days, dont?
I do tht but mainly cuz spf makes me grey and deathly (mainly cuz im anaemic tho)
