I'm looking for a sunscreen for face that can effectively protect the skin against UVA, with a rather light texture for dry skin that prone to occasional breakout. Thanks!

This is the one I have used "Shade All-Natural Sunscreen SPF25 - Unscented - Only 4 Ingredients - Available in 3 Sizes: 15ml, 100ml & 200ml" I bought it off amazon, uk, I don't know if they will ship to the US. It has worked well for me, my skin is olive & I am originally from Singapore so very similar type skin to yours except that yours is possibly much fairer than mine.

My two favs are Paula's Choice SPF 30 Resist Superlight and Australian Gold SPF 50 tinted for face. Both are sourced from zinc. I am very picky about sunscreen and hate it if they are greasy or leave a white cast. These are both winners for me. I like the Australian Gold the best as the price for what you get is really reasonable.

I agree that the Paula's Choice sunscreen is good. I also like how it's tinted.

Suntegrity makes a really good, tinted SPF that is very moisturizing. I also like the SPF 50 from MyChelle. It's more matte so you'll need a moisturizer underneath, but it's excellent. Elta MD also makes some wonderful sunscreens both tinted and clear.

I am hoping you meant to say protection against UVA and UVB... otherwise it's pointless

Try

SVR Laboratoires 50+ Ultra Max Sunscreen
Size: 50 ml / 1.7 fl oz

It contains a good combination of PHYSICAL and CHEMICAL sunscreen with HIGH faction of 50+. Don't be deterred by the "tint" in the product as it goes on super sheer. Its function is to make the cream skin-colour rather than white.
Because it is NOT oil-free, it spreads nicely but will give you a dewy finish.

NCN Professional sunscreen is my new favorite every day sunscreen. It is lightweight and effective and makes my skin feel soft, not sticky. I hate the feel of anything on my skin and this I love. From the website: OurPhysical Sunscreen SPF 32 is an antioxidant rich, full spectrum sunblock with UVA & UVB protection. Designed for all skin types, our anti-aging formula prevents melanin production and fades existing age spots and sun damage while inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen.

Our exclusive NCN formula is the perfect product to protect your face, neck and décolleté from sun damage. Though strong, it will not leave a white cast on your skin at all. It’s non-greasy and goes on completely clear – guaranteed!
