Sunscreen because retinoids thin the outer layer of skin, making one more susceptible to sun damage.

Yes, you should. The risk for damage is greater. You may not be able to see it right now but you will in a few years. However, if you're like most human beings, potential for future damage won't change your current behavior. :P

It's easy to not think of something like that but if you make it a habit like brushing your teeth or taking a shower, then it's easy. :P

PS: I also have my moments of seeking for instant gratification and torpedo the consequences! :P It's normal!
