tanning with sunscreen on marks

Recommended Posts

yo i usually tan for like 20 mins max and i put some sunscreen only on my red marks (the purpulish ones). but the thing that ive noticed is that when i do that, the spots where i put the sunscreen are shiny. but isnt that suppose to attract the sun on my marks? is it because im putting too much sunscreen or maybe im using a bad one (im using ombrelle or sumthing)? or maybe it just attracts and the sunscreen doesnt let it burn the skin? anybody knows about this stuff?

i personally use baby sunscreen since its the most gentle and oil free. I also dont go in over 12min cause its not the best for your skin...but it does help with my redness. You have to make sure to put it on the red parts only...its prolly shiney cause the skin is different than on the rest of your face since its had a pimple on it for a while...

I dont think that being "shiny" will make a difference. If anything I would think it reflects the sun as to not burn you, but I could be wrong, it has happend before.

ya i use a q-tip to put a very very small amount of sunscreen on all my purple marks... but i dun go to the salon just outside for about 20 minutes (usually before 11:00 and after 13:00 to avoid the tuff sun)
