    Sunscreen Disaster

    Hey yall,

    If got acne never use sunscreen unless you have to, they block the pores and make you breakout.

    first of all I dont understand why people still expose themselves to harmful UV rays anyways even with sun block you're not suppose to go marinate in the sun, its just there to protect you from the "little" rays that you're getting.

    but...you can use um Retin A with fair and flawless to get rid the damage and breakouts.

    Many sunscreens now offer very good broad-spectrum protection in both the UVA and UVB ranges. I use VMV HYPOALLERGENICS
    Skin-Lightening, Full-Spectrum Indoor-Outdoor Sun + Light Screens

    The most comprehensive protection — no other sun + light screen has measured protection factors against both outdoor and indoor UVA, UVB, Visible, and Infrared Light. SPF values up to 70-90, ultra-high PFAs (protection factor UVA). Light + comfortable even in hot, humid weather. Loaded with antioxidants. All Armada products effectively prevent sun-induced skin cancer, melasma + other hyperpigmentations, photoaging.

    Its very great.
