Alright so I'm a teenager with hyperpigmentation all over my forehead and chin and one annoying mark on my cheek. I have been avoiding sunlight as much as possible and it's pissing me off. Soon I will be volunteering at a summer camp all day... and now I'm scared that even with Sunblock and a hat, the marks (Which are fading slightly) will get worse. I do NOT want to that to happen.

 

 

I don't want to abandon my friends who are also volunteering... but now I'm really anxious.

 

 

Will sunblock and a hat be enough? Or I am I screwed in terms of the marks if I work in the sun all day?

I think you will be fine I'd use a 50 SPF and wear a baseball hat.

Dont let acne or redmarks stop you from living your life its not worth it and youll eventually look back and regret it. Just where some sun screen you be ok!
