Hello Nada, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sunscreen or sunscreen is a product that aims to protect the skin from direct ultraviolet (UV) exposure, where UV exposure increases the risk of abnormalities in the skin such as sunburn, black spots, skin cancer, etc. . The use of sunscreen itself is not limited to certain ages, but this sunscreen can be used by various ages, from infants to adults, because basically everyone can be exposed to UV rays or experience skin disorders that may arise due to exposure to these rays. Based on research, the earlier a person uses sunscreen, the lower the risk of skin cancer. Therefore, the use of sunscreen on teenagers of your age is highly recommended.
But to choose what type of sunscreen is suitable for your skin, you should consult with a dermatologist first, especially to make sure whether the sunscreen you are asking is indeed suitable for your skin condition or not. If you want to try first to use a sunscreen that is sold freely in Indonesia, there are some guidelines to help you choose a sunscreen, which is to choose a sunscreen that contains a minimum SPF of 15 and also has protection against UVA and UVB.
