Lupus & melasma means (1) using only mineral / physical sunscreen (2) that has a high SPF bec of photosensitivity, (3) that doesn’t cling to your dry patches caused by your medications, and (4) doesn’t make your tinted moisturizer or foundation pill.
My latest sunscreen haul includes:
- Coola’s Face SPF 30 Cucumber Matte Finish (my favorite, but not fond of the low SPF)
- Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion WetForce for Sensitive Skin and Children SPF 50+ (what I use this daily despite the very bad white cast)
- Derma-E DermaNatural Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Oil-Free Face (very moisturizing, but too thick for use at work).
