The Safety Of Using Sunblock On The Face?
doctor, is it safe to use sunblock on the face?
Hello Moh. marwazi,
The use of sunblock or sunscreen is actually recommended for use on the face every time you go out of the house, a minimum of SPF 30 to protect the skin from the bad effects of the sun. There are many types and strengths of sunscreen. Sunscreen can be chosen based on your activity and skin type.
There are sunscreens that are already included in facial makeup such as foundation, or separately or as moisturizers. If you have dry skin, choose one that is already moisturised, such as one that contains lanolin. If your skin is oily, you can choose the oil free one. If you have sensitive skin, avoid a lot of mixtures such as those containing perfumes and preservatives. For the face, you can use a special sunscreen for the face. It is better if you consult a dermatologist first so that it can be adjusted to your skin type. Don't forget to read the terms on the packaging. If it is not recommended to be used on the face then it should not be used. When swimming You swim, use a sunscreen that is waterproof or water resistant for about 40 minutes.
Sunscreen is used when outdoors, especially at 10:00 to 14:00. Can also be applied repeatedly if faded, sweaty or exposed to water. But no matter how good a sunscreen is, it can't protect 100% from the bad effects of the sun such as dark skin or sunburn to skin cancer. Therefore, use additional protection such as hats, long clothes, etc.
