Hey everyone! So unfortunately I just bought a Neutrogena SPF 100+ sunscreen today, thinking that it was going to be amazing however, I just read through a ton of posts saying that chemical sunscreens are harmful and dangerous. So, I live in Jamaica and I've been in countless pharmacies and NOT ONE has any physical sunscreens with Zinc Oxide or even Titanium Dioxide. Every single sunscreen sold down here that I've seen is a chemical one. So now I'm left to wonder, which is better- using the chemical sunscreen or just simply not using sunscreen at all?
A little about me: I remain mostly indoors and probably come into direct contact with the sun maybe 10 minutes max for the day, so I don't believe simply not using sunscreen at all would be that bad. I am trying to remove a permatan however, and have just started the exfoliation phase, using Retin-A as an exfoliant.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
