Best Sunscreens For Oily Skin: Say Goodbye to Shine and Grease!

It’s that time of year when you need to stock up on new sunscreens.

Yes, Summer is here!

As of now, there are a lot of sunscreens available in different forms, different formulas, and different packaging. It can really get confusing; what to buy and what not to buy.

Especially when its summertime and you have oily or combination skin type.


  • SPF Rating

Anything less than 30 won’t provide you with the necessary sun protection you need.

  • Comfortable Formula
  • Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B ( UVA / UVB ) Protection
  • Water and Sweat Resistance.

How To Use Sunscreen?

Apply sunscreen at least 30 mins before you leave home, so that it soaks into your skin properly. Reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours throughout the day is important.

Don’t neglect hard-to-reach and mostly forgotten areas like ears, feet, and upper back. Include sunscreen in your morning skincare routine even if it is not sunny outside.

Sunscreens come in various formulas – creams, lotions, sticks, and gels. So, pick the one that works best for your skin.

To make it easier for you, we have curated a list of the best sunscreens for oily skin that will help you to beat the summer heat.

We only include products that have been independently selected by the Just Her Checklist team. However, we may receive a portion of sales without any extra cost to you if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
