Product Info

Sunscreen spray for acne-prone skin on the body

UV light is the main cause of sun-induced skin damage, but high-energy visible (HEVIS) light can also induce free radicals that cause further stress and damage to the skin. 

Eucerin Sun Spray Oil Control Transparent SPF 50+ is a sunscreen spray for the body that soothes and protects sensitive skin including acne-prone skin. The Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA and UVB filters1 for high UV protection, also with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UV and HEVIS light. 

The transparent and non-greasy spray absorbs quickly and is water-resistant and sweat-resistant. 
Eucerin Sun Spray Oil Control Transparent SPF 50+ is clinically and dermatologically proven to be suitable for sensitive skin including acne-prone skin.

How to use

Sunscreen as part of your daily routine

  • Apply in the morning after, or instead of, your regular day care product 
  • High sun protection is particularly important if you are taking acne medication or have used a skin peeling product as both these treatments can make skin even more sensitive to the sun 
  • Can be used in combination with other Eucerin Face Care products such as those in the Eucerin DERMOPURE range
  • Your skin is instantly protected from the sun – no waiting time required 

Sun protection isn’t just for sun bathers. Light to moderate everyday exposure affects skin too, and blemish-prone skin is particularly susceptible to hyperpigmentation issues which are easily exacerbated by the sun. That’s why it’s important to include sun protection in your daily skincare routine. Find out more in The importance of sun protection in your daily routine. 

Three steps to optimal sun protection

1. Select the right product

Choose a product that offers the right level of protection for your skin. It should protect against UVA and UVB rays and offer HEVIS light defense. It should also be tailored to your skin type and condition.

2. Use the right amount

It’s important to use sufficient product and to reapply it regularly. You can use your palm to measure how much product to use. We recommend a thick line of sunscreen (stretching from the tip of your middle finger to your wrist) for each area (1-11) on the diagram.

3. Apply thoroughly

Ensure that all exposed areas get the protection they need. Some parts are easy to miss. Don’t forget the back and shoulders as well as your hands and feet, the backs of the arms and the areas at the edges of swimwear.

How it works

It’s not just UV rays that can damage skin. High-energy visible (HEVIS) light generates free radicals that cause photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun), and even high UV protection is not enough to prevent it. Eucerin Sun Spray Oil Control Transparent SPF 50+ offers Advanced Spectral Technology that goes beyond UV to protect skin from the negative effects of HEVIS light too. The formula also supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism. 

Advanced Spectral Technology 
Superior broad-spectrum and photostable UVA/UVB filters are combined with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UVA and HEVIS light.

DNA protection 
The sunscreen for oily skin also includes Glycyrrhetinic Acid
which supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism.

FAQ (6)

  • How do I know which SPF to use?

    Sunscreens are available in four different levels of protection: low (factor 6 to 10), medium (15 to 25), high (30 to 50) and very high (50+). The higher the protection factor the better your skin is protected, but it’s important to apply the product thoroughly (be careful not to miss any bits) and to reapply it generously every two hours.

  • Can sunscreen clog my pores and lead to breakouts?

    Some people with oily and acne-prone skin are concerned that sunscreen will worsen their symptoms and avoid sun protection altogether. Specially formulated products such as Eucerin Sun Spray Oil Control Transparent SPF 50+ are tested on people with oily and acne prone skin and proven neither to clog pores nor to trigger breakouts.

  • My skin is acne-prone. Do I need special suncare?

    Yes. Effective sun protection is essential for all skin types and it’s particularly important for acne-prone skin for a number of reasons: 

    • To protect against hyperpigmentation: As skin affected by acne shows a high degree of inflammation, it is particularly prone to hyperpigmentation and excess melanin is produced. This surplus melanin remains after the spot has healed leaving a pigmentation mark. These pigmentation marks are particularly susceptible to the sun and the right sun protection will help to prevent them from darkening and becoming more noticeable. 
    • To prevent skin from drying out: Oily skin still needs moisture. Over exposure to the sun causes it to dry out and the sebaceous glands (which products the sebum that gives skin the oil it needs) go into overdrive. This excess sebum is one of the key stages in the development of blemishes. When skin dries out its external layers harden and this can get in the way of the natural skin-shedding process. Dead skin can build up, block pores and exacerbate acne. 

    It’s also important to be aware that some acne medication and skin peels can make skin more sensitive to the sun and more susceptible to sun-induced skin damage. Products specially formulated for acne-prone skin, such as Eucerin Sun Spray Oil Control Transparent SPF 50+, will protect acne-prone skin from sunburn with high UV protection and a non-sticky and non-oily finish, offering all-day protection with oil and shine control. 

  • Why do I need to integrate sun face care into my daily routine?

    Facial skin is more sensitive to UVA/UVB radiation and HEVIS light than skin on the rest of the body as it is exposed to sun all year round. Sun protection can help you avoid the cellular DNA damage caused by UV, photoaging (premature aging caused by the sun) and hyperpigmentation. It is important to protect facial skin whenever it is exposed to the sun. 

  • What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

    UVA rays penetrate the deeper layers of skin. They stimulate the production of free radicals in the skin which cause oxidative stress and can lead to indirect DNA damage (where the free radicals modify cellular DNA over time).  UVA rays are most commonly associated with photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). They can also trigger sun allergies such as Polymorphous Light Eruption (PLE). UVB rays can also provoke allergies, but to a lesser degree.

    UVB rays provide the energy your skin needs to make Vitamin D and stimulate the production of melanin which is responsible for tanning. They don’t travel as deeply as UVA rays, penetrating only the outermost layers of skin, but they cause more immediate damage such as sunburn. UVB rays are directly absorbed by cellular DNA which can lead to skin diseases such as actinic keratosis and skin cancer.

    Both types of UV can induce hyperpigmentation and may contribute to conditions such as sun spots (also known as age spots) and melasma.

  • What is high-energy visible light and why does my skin need to be protected from it?

    The sunlight spectrum consists of UV, visible and infrared light. Visible sunlight can be detected by the human eye, while the others remain invisible. Part of this visible spectrum has a high energy level and is known as high-energy visible light. It is also referred to as HEVIS light, HEV Light, HEVL and sometimes ‘blue light’ or ‘blue violet light’

    Like UVA rays, HEVIS light penetrates the deeper layers of skin (the dermis) and can generate free radicals. These free radicals are one of the main causes of photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). They interfere with skin cells and break down the collagen and elastin that gives our skin its plump, youthful appearance. HEVIS light has also been linked to uneven skin pigmentation and melasma.

    Many modern sunscreens offer effective protection against UVA and UVB rays, but we recommend that you look out for products that also defend against the negative effects of HEVIS light. These products will give your skin reliable protection from photoaging and, in the long run, can also help to combat the visible signs of skin aging.
