How do I stop breaking out in the sun? Whether you have pimples or not, always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with 6% zinc oxide or higher and SPF 30 or higher at least 20 minutes before sun exposure. Look for “noncomedogenic” on the sunscreen label to make new pimples less likely.
Can sun exposure make your face break out?

Why am I all of a sudden allergic to the sun? Solar urticaria is a rare allergic reaction to sun exposure.

There is no cure for solar urticaria.
What does sun allergy look like? Polymorphous light eruption is a rash caused by sun exposure in people who have developed sensitivity to sunlight.
