Worried That Wearing Sunscreen Can Make Things Worse

Recommended Posts

For some reason, I came across an article that said the chemicals in sun screens and such products can cause irritation, scarring, and aging in the long run.

I know the sun is the worst enemy to the skin and won't help anything, but could using a facial moisturizer/sunscreen actually cause these things?

I recently bought an SPF 50 shiseido product but have been hesitant to use it.

Would like opinions from others.

Thanks guys

I love olay sensitive skin lotion with spf 15 and olay regenerist lotion with spf 15 or 50. They wont clog your pores. Hylunia makes a great sunscreen too but its thicker. Their stuff is all natural though. You should apply suncreen everyday because you dont want to get skin cancer. My hubby had to have a basal cell carcinoma removed recently on his nose and you dont want that! They dig down pretty deep to remove all the cancer. He isnt in the sun very much either he just doesnt wear sunscreen unless we are laying out or ar the beach.

I've been using eltaMD clear for the past 3 months and the results have been amazing! I'm using it with the regimen in place of a moisturizer in the morning. I was still dealing with active acne when I started using it and now I barely have any acne. Bonus is that it is 45 SPF!
