3 Harmful
Myths Debunked

“I don’t need to wear sunscreen if I’m going to spend most of the day indoors.”

You should wear sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 every day, even when you’ll be indoors, because blue light from digital screens can damage your skin.

“A higher SPF means I can safely spend more time in the sun.”

Higher SPF technically offers more protection, but that doesn’t mean you should stay in the sun longer than necessary or skip reapplication. Even more melanated skin, which has a natural SPF of 13, requires SPF and two-hour reapplications.

“Sunscreen causes acne.”

Sunscreen itself does NOT cause acne. Those with acne-prone skin should opt for lightweight, oil-free, and non-comedogenic formulas. Some people may break out due to a reaction caused by the sun or the specific sunscreen used — which could look like acne. On darker skin tones, this can manifest in itchiness, stinging, or raised bumps.
