Are these safe for the face? I have been using them ( various brands) throughout the years because I didnt want sun on my face ( for avoiding wrinkles and brown spots). Now Im hearing that they may be more harmful than good..is this true? Are there just specific ingredients I should avoid?

Lycopene is very safe and even beneficial. If its tint is acceptable, you can try it as a fake tan (but it does not obviate the need for a sunscreen).

Damage from the sun is definitely worse.
