Hello,

I am wondering if a person skin can get used to sunscreen after using it for a long time.

Assume that different people can (naturally and without sunscreen) tolerate UV to different degrees. If a person never used sunscreen before in his life and he could naturally tolerate like 20 minutes in the sun before getting a sunburn (let's call this baseline). And after that he started using sunscreen everyday for years and then stopped.

Can this behavior make his skin more vulnerable to the sun than before he started using it? (comparing to the baseline).

Thank!

If you completely eliminate UV exposure, whether by using sunscreen or by avoiding sun exposure, your level of skin pigmentation will decrease to your natural baseline, which might make you somewhat more sensitive to the UV (compared to when you have a little bit of tan from occasional UV exposure).

Well, I am afraid, but I guess skin do get addicted to sunscreen. I have been using sunscreen from a long time now and now, If sometime I don't apply sunscreen to my face, It looks pale and dead. I guess that only because it is addicted to sunscreen and on applying other random creams it don't reacts at all.

You can get used to it somewhat, but you cant go on indefinitely. From my experiences, sleep deprivation is one of those things that people often exagerate.

Hi, more recommendation for women If you demand bar cleanser, keep away from shampoos with sodium lauryl sulfate which can dry skin. Instead, search for saturating cleansers with fixings, for example, glycerin and plant-based oils. more info visit this site skincaremoz(dot)com
