Just like sunscreen decreases your skin’s sensitivity to the sun there are ingredients (like retinol, AHAs, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide) that actually increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
What does this mean for you?
It means if you are using products with these ingredients,it is essential you use the products as directed and take extra precautions when it comes to sun exposure.
Go beyond using a broad spectrum sunscreen and cover up with a hat and sunglasses. Your skin will be happier you did!
