Sunscreen: Sunscreen will help prevent the dark spots from becoming darker due to sun exposure but doesn't have therapeutic value with regards to shrinking pores or reducing oiliness (other products are available for this). Hypersensitivity to sunscreens is a real issue, but choosing one that is labeled for sensitive skin can possibly prevent adverse reaction. Good luck!
