Sunscreen for Oily Skin

My face becomes dark whenever it gets exposed in the sun, even for few minutes. How can I protect my face? It's oily. Can I use aloe vera?

Thank you.

I get dark also, I use a good sunscreen and I try to wear a hat.

Aloe Vera will soothe a sunburn, but it won't protect your skin from the sun. You must use a sunscreen to block the sun's rays to forego a tan.

I use a 30spf sunscreen by Banana Boat. Not in the least greasy. No fragrance that I can detect, of course, I can't smell stuff worth a darn, but it says fragrance free. They have also 50spf. Apply at least a shot glass amount all over, not just your face. Put it on your neck and chest area and hands and arms. Your hands will look better after a while. Re-apply after two hours. Replace once a year, so write on the tube with a permanent marker when you bought it! You can also date any lotion or cream or makeup. Fresh is more effective. Cheers!

The Neutrogena Dry-Feel sunscreen is great. I have oily skin and it doesn't make me too greasy.
