Roaccutane makes your skin burn easily – indeed, a friend of mine who took roaccutane last year reported even managing to get slightly sunburnt on cloudy days…
So, suncream has become my best friend – I wear it on my face most days when I go outside and the sun is out, particularly when playing sport or doing something that involves being outdoors for a long period of time.
For this I use La Roche-Posay Anthelios AC Matte Fluid, which is a little 50ml bottle of SPF30 cream designed for use on your face without making it look shiny or greasy or clogging up your pores. It doesn’t moisturise at all however, so I carry my La Roche-Posay Effaclar H Moisturiser in my beach to stop the skin on my face from getting too tight and uncomfortable.
I was on holiday in Croatia last week and I managed to get through and entire bottle of suncream so I didn’t burn!! I’m a big sunbather so I reapplied super often, particularly when fresh out of the sea or after lying on one side of my body (i.e rubbing off half the suncream I had spent ages putting on…). I’m a big fan of Garnier Ambre Solaire Moisturising Protection Spray in SPF30, which avoids your skin getting too dry in the sun and salt as well as protecting it effectively if you reapply regularly.
Happy summer!! X
Photos from Croatia – we stayed on the island of Pag, which is a place I thoroughly recommend visiting!! A little tough if you’re partying lots on the amazing Zrce Beach because you can’t drink on roaccutane, but I still managed to have some great nights out!!
