Do You Need To Use Sunscreen After Using Lotion That Does Not Contain SPF?
, I want to ask, if I use hand u0026amp; body lotion is normal (not sunscreen) but there is already SPF 30 PA ++, do I need to be covered again using Suncreen or not?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
In general, SPF in body lotion can already function to help prevent sunburn, slow aging, and reduce the risk of skin cancer due to ultraviolet light exposure. In the morning, you can use an SPF body lotion of at least 30 without the need for additional sunscreen applications before outdoor activities.
It's just that you are still recommended to apply SPF sunscreen at least 30 about 2 hours after using the body lotion and repeat the use of the sunscreen every 2 hours, especially if you have long activities outdoors that makes you sweat a lot or are exposed to water . In addition, you are also advised to use a hat or umbrella if you must be outdoors during the day.
Do not hesitate to consult with a dermatologist and a skin specialist regarding skin care products that are suitable for your skin. To enrich insight, you can read articles about using sunscreen. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
