For Acne-Prone Skin: Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 55

Some facial sunscreens leave a thick, impenetrable layer on skin, clogging pores and resulting in giant breakouts a couple of days later—we've all been there, and it's not pretty. But you can prevent that from ever happening again with this Neutrogena sunscreen. The non-comedogenic formula is specially designed to keep acne at bay, but it doesn't skimp on UVA/UVB sun protection either. It's lightweight and leaves skin matte and fresh, so you can kiss your coat of thick sunscreen goodbye. ($13; walgreens.com)
