Best Sunscreen to Use With Differin

If your healthcare provider prescribes Differin® (adapalene) to treat acne, it is important to understand that this medication will cause your skin to be more sensitive to the sun. Therefore, it is important to get your healthcare provider's advice about what sunscreen would be best to use with Differin. He or she will be able to recommend a good sunscreen that will be appropriate for your skin type (and will not worsen your acne).
 
It is also important to talk to your healthcare provider about any other measures you should take to protect your skin from the sun. You may have to avoid exposure to sunlight, including artificial sunlight (such as sun lamps or tanning booths). Also, if you do get a sunburn, you may have to stop using Differin until your skin has recovered.
